A Heart's Promise by Colleen Coble

It's fall of 1866 in the Wyoming Territory. Emmie is pregnant and a widow – that it, she thought she was a widow until Monroe's real wife showed up. Destitute, she had gone west to be with her friend, Sarah. Now at Fort Phil
Kearny, she was sour on men. They were fickle at best and treacherous at worst.

As the ceaseless chilly winds of autumn usher in winter, Sarah and Rand settle into their new accommodations at Rand's new posting. Emmie doesn't know quit what to make of Isaac's attention, especially when he accompanied her to see the moon over the Little Piney River.

Emmie faces a quandary. She'd like to receive Isaac's advances yet does not want to be hurt again. Just when she is beginning to soften her attitude, Jessica DuBois shows up and she has eyes for Isaac. She is willing to ruin Emmie to get him.

The drama continues in this, the fifth novella in A Journey of the Heart series. If you haven't read the previous novellas in the series, you need to as you will not understand the situation unless you have.

We get to know Emmie a little better. She is faced with the possibility that God actually loves and cares for her. She is also faced with the decision of what to do with the possibility that Isaac loves her too.

This episode in the series didn't seem to move the story along very far. I am anxious to get to the last installment to see how it all works out.

I am taking part in a blog tour of this book and you can read other reviews here.

You can read the reviews of novellas 1-4: A Heart's Disguise, A Heart's Obsession, A Heart's Danger, and A Heart's Betrayal.
