Bel Davison, has just returned back home to Sydney to sell up her house and business to move back to her birthplace of Scotland and move onto the future with Scotsman Matt Reid who she met and fell in love with on her trip to be with her dying aunt, at sixty five a divorced woman Bel had been leading a very single life and is really looking forward to the future, but of course life throws up obstacles and Bel has a lot of obstacles to leap and this makes her think that maybe a bright and loving future was not part of the bigger plan.
Matt Reid is widowed with two adult married children and three grandchildren a retired solicitor, when working for old Isobel he meets her niece Bel and they just gel so well, Matt now finds that he wants Bel in his future and at sixty seven he is thrilled, but Bel needs to go back to Australia and he needs to convince his daughter that Bel means a lot to him, but otherwise life is looking fabulous, but then things start to overturn in Australia and a trip is necessary, which then leads to a lot of turmoil and uncertainty for Matt and Bel.
Mid -life you would think should be smooth sailing, but for this couple who are so much in love, other matters got in the way and caused a lot of heartache and confusion and unrest, my heart was going out to Bel and Matt both of them are such caring people and deserved so much to be in love and have that happiness and in the end through some tears and smiles they got there so very beautifully, what a story, although I have finished this book Bel and Matt are still very much in my mind and heart. Thank you MS Christensen for a fabulous story, this is one that I highly recommend, and I am looking forward now to reading The Good Sister.
But as one thing after another combined to drag Bel down, she wondered if it would be possible to get it all done. The night she was closing her shop and her ex-husband appeared at the door gave Bel a dreadful shock. She’d been divorced from him for over thirty years – what on earth could he want? But it seemed he wanted a lot…
Matt was missing Bel immensely – he was having some troubles of his own, but his regular skype sessions with Bel kept him sane. As things began to deteriorate in both Australia and Scotland, both Bel and Matt wondered if their future was a pipe dream. Both in their mid to late sixties, they deserved the chance at the happiness they’d found – didn’t they?
Isobel’s Promise is a follow on to The Good Sister by Aussie author Maggie Christensen and I absolutely loved it! I couldn’t put it down, reading until some ridiculous hour last night until it was finished! Historical fiction is one of my favourite genres, and these two of Maggie’s tick all the boxes. Intrigue, drama, heartache, passion, mystery – all combine to make Isobel’s Promise another exceptional tale from a favourite author. I’m really looking forward to the next! Highly recommended.
