Sentence of Marriage (Promises to Keep: Book 1)

Book 1, Promises To Keep - Promises To Keep, no. 1

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


“I won’t have her forced,” Jack said. “Let her decide for herself.”

Amy knew her father meant it. She could say no if she wanted. But this marriage would make everything all right. They could put all the trouble she had caused behind them. Everyone would be happy again.

Everyone except her.

“Sentence of Marriage” is the first book in the three-volume “Promises to Keep”.

In nineteenth century New Zealand, there are few choices for a farm girl like Amy. Her life seems mapped out for her by the time she is twelve. Amy dreams of an exciting life in the world beyond her narrow boundaries. But it is the two people who come to the farm from outside the valley who change her life forever, and Amy learns the high cost of making the wrong choice.

"One of the best historical novels I’ve had the pleasure to read in years." - WorkingGirl Reviews.

"The story was captivating, the characters real, the dialogue crisp. I admit to having cried and laughed and even having wanted to murder a character and beat another one within an inch of his life — which is simply a testament to how well written these books are." - AmericanEditor.

I downloaded from another website and it sat gathering virtual dust for weeks. I thought I would give it a chance and I'm glad I did! The writing, pace, description of surroundings and characters are beautifully written and left me second guessing throughout about what would happen next. So much so I could feel fear and anger throughout while all the time wanting to reach into the pages to throttle the step mother from hell! I have just downloaded the other three which are much cheaper on here than other websites! Great read!
