From the Back Cover
Beth MacKay is finally back home at Culdee Creek after five years as a medical student. When she left to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor, she was hopelessly devoted to Noah Starr, the minister of Grand View's parish, and utterly heartbroken at his marriage to someone else. Beth is all grown up now, over her childish crush, and brandishing a fierce determination. But wounds from her childhood have compounded with a fresh hurt that festers deep inside.
Noah is widowed now, a single father torn by grief and a growing sense of disillusionment with the pastorate. Noah's and Beth's lives soon become intertwined as they both serve the people of Grand View. But can they use their gifts to heal one another as well?

INTRO: Each chapter of "Child of Promise" opens with a scripture, then weaves the story to illustrate the depth of the words that appear simple. In the first chapters, Beth has two great desires - to practice medicine and to become the wife of Noah Starr, the pastor of the local Episcopal church. When Noah marries another, Beth pursues a degree in medicine. Her time studying to be a doctor leaves her bitter, hardened and emotionally scarred. Upon her return home, circumstances put Noah, now widowed, and his disabled daughter in constant contact with Beth.
ANYONE WHO READS THIS BOOK IS IN FOR A SPECIAL BLESSING! While the story line appears to be the typical romance genre, the story is far from shallow, typical, or traditional. Kathleen Morgan, the author, goes past "happy ever after" to the reality of human nature and the relationship of each of us to God, as well as each other.
THEMES: This amazing historical novel addresses "hot topics" such as women in non-traditional careers, dual career families, domestic abuse, disabilities, etc. At the same time, it deals with ageless themes such as love, loss, and anger with God.
This book could be read as a study of church relations for everyone who is a member of the clergy, married to a member of the clergy, a leader in the church, a lay person, avoids church due to the hypocrites who attend or knows someone who goes to church. In other words, this is a must read for all.
Thanks again, Kathleen Morgan, for allowing yourself to be used by God for my benefit.
Although all three of the first books were good this one I think is my favorite. Beth is trying her best to be female doctor in the early 1900's while Noah is struggling to be the priest that everyone expects him to be. It was wonderful to watch Beth's and Noah's relationship grow and blossom. This book deals a lot with forgiveness in your self as well as with others, it also deals with pride. You have a head strong doctor and a priest who is in charge of his flock. Both are suppose to help others but who do they turn to when they are the ones who need help? It brings in perspective that no one person is better then the other. You may have a different calling in your life then the person next to you but it doesn't mean that they won't experience trials and tribulations the same as you. It was also very well portrayed that God does hear our prayers but doesn't always answer them in the timing and way that we may want or expect them to be. It left me feeling hopeful and encouraged. As with all her other books this was a wonderful read. I am looking forward to starting the next series 'Heart of the Rockies'
I love how they took the period when things were so different from how our world is now, and reminds us all that the Lord is always there for us know matter what trials we are going through personally, and discusses His love and how unconditional it is.
Child of Promise (Brides of Culdee Creek, Book 4)
I look forward to reading the next set of Kathleen Morgan books, starting with "The Child of the Mist." Thank You Ms. Morgan for a Wonderful collection.
I love how Beth transformed into the adult daughter, wife, Doctor and child of God all came together. Learning to trust Nosh and forgive herself for sins in her recent past.
I loved every book in the "Brides of Culdee Creek" series, and am sorry they are finished. I will be looking for future book's by Kathleen Morgan.
