Sarah McCarty is one of my favorite authors and this book, Promises Linger, lives up to my expectations. This book is all about promises, those who make and keep them and those who don't. Elizabeth in trying to keep the promise made to her father sought a husband to aid her in trying to keep the land finally marrying. Her new husband, Asa, gave everything he had to keep the promise he made to Elizabeth and to earn the acceptance he wanted. Together they learned about the true meaning of love and Asa found that a promise made in his youth was kept.
