Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Badly in need of a vacation, successful New York attorney Cat Browning accepts a friend's invitation to rural eastern Oregon and ends up being swept off her feet by the charming son of a local rancher. But when tragedy strikes and Cat finds herself both widowed and pregnant, she stays in Oregon, eventually falling in love once more?this time with her rugged, caring father-in-law. Fast paced and well crafted, this compelling story is an intriguing blend of women's fiction and romance, combining action with a remarkable love story in an unusual, but definitely rural American setting. Readers who enjoyed Nora Roberts's Montana Sky might like this one. Bickmore (Deep in the Heart, Kensington, 1996) lives in Mexico.

I am an avid reader of Barbara Bickmore books. "The Moon Below" was the best book I have ever read and I have managed to find all of her books but one. "Beyond the Promise" characters are interesting and believeable and the plot has its twists and turns which keeps your interest until the end. My daughters have read the book and they all liked it. Of course, we are waiting for her next book...out when???

I loved this book! The descriptions of the Oregon landscape made me feel I was there. I cared deeply for the sympathetic characters and their compelling stories. I've laughed and cried through many wonderful Barbara Bickmore novels, and loved them all ... but this one is my favorite. Thanks, Ms. Bickmore ... and keep them coming!

I couldn't put this book down from the moment that I picked it up, it was so great. For those reviews that talk of how sexist,how much sex, etc, if you can appreciate the love that people have for each other and tragety and reality of life then this is a great book, just have an open mind. This is a book that touched me and showed me the love of one family and of their friends. I don't know how anyone could not love this book.

This is the first book by Barbara Bickmore that I have read. I could not put it down. Excellent story. It talks about real life situations and feelings. I would highly recommend reading it, but not when you have to go to work the next day.

Great Book. One exception, the author is missinformed about all homeschoolers. The majority of homeschooled kids in this country score well above the national average on SAT and ACT scores. Homeschooled children are generally found to be very socially adept with adults as well as with their own peers. I am public school teacher, wanna be homeschooler. Research this Ms. Bickmore before you make biased remarks.

What happened to Cat & Scott hit way too close to home. I had nightmares after reading it and almost did not finish the book. I did finish it but I know that I could never bring myself to reread it as I do so often with other books.

I thought this was one of the most tantalizing books I've read of Barbara Bickmore. I was kept on the edge of my seat the entire time reading. I can't wait for her next book to come out!
