Book Description

Aug. 1 2010
After twelve years, the headstrong Annabel McKeige is back in the frontier town of Parable, Nevada. Back to face the husband she left behind...the son she never saw grow to manhood...and the home where her heart broke when she lost a beloved daughter. But her intentioins regarding their marriage are soon clear -- even if her motives are not.

Gabe McKeige loved Annabel too fiercely to let a chance like this slip away. But the iron-willed rancher is also too proud to beg -- he didn't twelve years ago, and he won't now. So, Gabe sets out to woo Annabel the only way he knows...with passion-filled kisses and sensual touches that conjure the sweet firestorm of their marriage bed. And Annabel is finding that the man she once left is unbearably hard to resist....

ANNABEL LATHAM MCKEIGE'S RETURN TO PARABLE, Nevada, some twelve years after her scandalous departure, might have equaled the Second Coming for spectacle, if an angel or two had taken the trouble to show up. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Linda Lael Miller triumphs again with The Vow. March 17 1998
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Vow is set in Nevada, 1878.
It's main characters, Annibel and Gabe Mckeige and their son Nicholas have had an unusual and intriguing past which gives the book it's uniqueness.
Annibel, following the death of their daughter Susannah, was inconsolable and Gabe and she could not seem to comfort each other.
As with many couples facing the death of a child, they drew apart rather than closer together.
Annabel ran to her elderly aunt in Boston, fully expecting Gabe to come after her.
When it was clear he would not, she set out for England where her family was from.
The book actually begins when she returns to Parable, Nevada with a startling request for her husband (at least in those days).
That's when all the sparks and fun begin, and they don't end until the conclusion of the book.
Linda Lael Miller has written so many books that I love and will keep forever that the list would be endless here, but The Vow is now there on the shelf.
I hope you will order a copy and see for yourself how much she can make you laugh and cry and see the reality of life in this book.
I think I'll re-read it tomorrow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Miller at her most eloquent Feb. 19 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A dozen years have passed since Annabel Mckeige's dad died and, unable to cope with her grief, she deserted her spouse Gabe and her seven year old son Nicholas. Over the subsequent years, Annabel continued to correspond with her child. However, she has finally returned to her hometown of Parable, Nebraska.
Neither Nicholas or Gabe have any intention of falling in with her plans. Her son cannot forgive her and her spouse refuses to allow the woman he still loves leave him again. Before the battling adults can declare all out war on each other, their son gets in deep trouble with the law. They agree to put aside their differences while trying to help the boy they both love.
THE VOW is a beautiful tale of love lost and regained, while demonstrating that this is the strongest, most enduring emotion humans can hope to experience. As seen through the eyes of the three Mckeiges, the talented Linda Lael Miller provides a magical western romance that is a relationship drama that would be a masterpiece in any era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!! Jan. 19 2002
By Caro
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This bk is awesome. Really it is. It's different than other romances and contains alot of depth in the characters. I put off reading this bk for a long time b/c I didn't like the idea of a Mother leaving her child and husband for 12yrs. I could not fathom a reason why anyone would do this especially in the 1800's!! Well, I bought Anabelle's reason for leaving (I certainly did not agree with it) and I loved how she stayed true to Gabriel all those years.
It was also interesting to watch the H/H interact with a grown child as well as how he interacted with them. I would have liked to have seen more of a scene where Nicholas vented his anger to his Mother over why she left him but even without that scene the bk was great.
If your looking for something different than the usual romance this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fulfilling The Vow July 14 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"The Vow", another of Linda Lael Miller's great works. When Annabel returns to her home in Parable, Nevada, the sparks fly between Annabel and her husband, Gabe McKeige. Both are too stubborn to admit that although they lost a beloved child years before, their love for each other did not die. After unsuccessfully trying to deny their feelings, eventually the passion erupts, the fire is rekindled, and the promises made long ago are once again being fulfilled in "The Vow."
I love Ms. Miller's books and each gets better than the last. Read "The Vow" and I promise you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic Characters Stand Out April 9 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The hook of course is our heroine, Annabel, AND her entrance back into town. Knowing LLM for many years I immediately started anticipating who was the had-to-be major dynamic hero, Gabriel. I was not disappointed. All of the major characters had many different colors. Linda maintains her artistic touch to create a masterpience with lots of passionate interaction. In addition to everything, I delighted at the two suprises she saved until the very end! Last but certainly not least the town, Parable, Nevada, was where it HAD to take place.
