I wouldn't read a romance, but I found this tape thrown out by a local library, so why not listen?
Things seem so mundane and non-different in Promise, Texas, I really didn't expect much to happen. And it didn't. One positive thing, it is easier to keep track of the characters here than in some other audiobooks.
The reader does a good job with the voices, though Amy's "protector" Dovie tends to sound like an old woman, real old.
Routine happenings here, nothing unusual or even remarkable: for example, Lyle Whitehouse, the so-called cow-hand, approaching Amy with "lust in his heart" (and being what Amy found to be "unmannerly") and then having to fight the upright pastor, Wade (whose heart is, of course, pure). Ever heard or seen that one before? If you haven't, you've missed many an "oater."
In fact, the whole plot, such as it is, reminds me of an old western, but even duller. I doubt that I'll ever have occasion to read anything by Ms. Macomber again, or any Harlequins for that matter. Unless I'm lost on a desert island with only that one book. She pulled my coat on this one, and I think I've learned my lesson. Diximus.

Loving it. Even though I did find the heroine to be annoying when it came to the relationship between herself and the pastor, this story was absolutely perfectly written. There was a nice balance of humor, drama, romance and conflict. The story was well paced even though there wasn't much really going in the plot. It was a mellow story that flowed from one chapter to the next. I couldn't put the book down. The hero, Wade, was an absolute sweetheart. As a confirmed bachelor, he was reluctant to even think of marrying. But as soon as he realized that he wanted to know and love Amy, he didn't let anyone get in the way. Even if it meant fighting for her honor. Amy was a nice girl that got a bad lot in life, but despite the wonderful people of Promise and Wade's devotion, she refused to give up her victim role. It can be a bit annoying. The story didn't just focus on Amy and Wade. Past characters will make frequent visits throughout the story and you will get their stories as well. Side note, this is a clean romance.
This was definitely one of Mrs. Macomber's best. A clean, gentle, sweet romance that a Christian romance reader would definitely like. If you like the Harlequin Romance line, definitely your cup of tea. If you are looking for passion and an enthralling plot, you might want to pass this up.
liked the characters of Frank & Dovie, and Wade & Amy. It is so special to see people in their late 50' s or in their 60's still acting and
showing their love for each other. True love does not stop as you get older, but should become stronger throw th the years. Now
that the ghost town is back to life will that be a start of anew series Debbie?
