Format: Paperback
I've lived as widower, faced the grief while trying to begin a new life. The title suggests Miriam as protagonist, but men will relate to Gabe. He faces major life changes and responsibility. Girls will see Miriam as a committed career feminine gal with a family yearning. The 2 struggles attract. By author design, they merge in an Amish district. Little did they know it would touch the entire village of Cashton.
A great book for a mixed gender book reading group. His view-her take.

Tired of sympathetic stares (that REALLY happens), Gabe moves his daughter north, away from a sad ending. Heartache and problems follow the move, even for little Gracie. I like this author, Vannetta Chapman, as she shows the humanness of an Amish community--not just the peculiarities derived from their faith and connecting lifestyle choices. There's a struggle theme that's true for all people, not only Amish.

Find more subplots in this Pebble Creek story than stitch styles on a sampler. More barn scenes than bedrooms in this light romance. Blizzards to town council squabbles provide adventure and suspense.
The BEST Amish Christmas morning scene I've every read. And book 2's prologue and chapter one (printed after the glossary and discussion questions in this book) promises a second delightful Pebble Creek tale. I will pick it up too.

By the way, my (reviewer's) real-life second chance love and marriage thrives, thanks to God.

I think this was a good story and pretty well written. The story line held my interest, though I've read better about the Amish people.

Well Vannetta has done it again A Promise for Miriam is a super easy Amish read. This book is different from Vannetta's Shipshewana Amish Mystery series; this is more a romance. I have to say that her books are getting better and better. I could not put this book down. That is how I know that a book is good, the house work is put on the back burner until the very last page has been read. You do not want to miss Vannetta's next book A Home For Lydia.

Being a teacher, and having visited the Amish Country in Lancaster, I so enjoyed reading this book. It is one of my famorites that I have read this summer. I visited one of the Amish Schools while in Lancaster, and this book was just fantastic. It was so vivid that I felt like I was right there with the characters in the book. Loved it!!!!!!!!

I like all of Vanetta's books but I really like her mysteries the best! Her Amish stories are a good read without brutality and vulgarity and this I love!

A Promise for Miriam is a must-read Amish romance! With its endearing characters, emotional storyline, and tender romance, A Promise for Miriam captured my heart and made me long for more of this special community and its wonderful residents! I can't wait to visit Pebble Creek, Wisconsin again in the pages of A Home for Lydia!

I highly recommend A Promise for Miriam, as well as the other novels in the Pebble Creek series!
