    A Great Ending To A Great Series!

    Annie Beiler captured my heart from page one in this book. She doesn't seem to be very sure of herself at times and I most certainly can relate to her character. Annie is a school teacher and is a natural at it. She loves her students and they love her. Annie is very fond of History, so much so that she took her students on a field trip to A Civil War Battlefield without the permission of the school board and her students parents. Will she lose her job over this? Annie is attracted to Joshua and hopes he asks to take her home from the singings, but on the other hand she has heard that he is nothing more than a player. Would she really want to be seen with the likes of him? Joshua Esh is from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He came to Seymour, Missouri participating in the swap. He never intended to find a young lady to marry and settle down like the other young men. Joshua came along for the adventure. He fully intends to return to Lancaster County when it is time to harvest the maple syrup on his Dad's farm. Joshua has been intrigued with Annie since he saw her reading a story to some of her students. He saw how much she enjoyed it and how the children responded to her. He would really like to ask Annie if he could take her home from the singings but he is hesitant because he thinks that Annie is promised to Luke. Luke Schwartz Annie's previous boyfriend jumped the fence but has returned to Seymour. He is determined to win Annie back even though Annie wants nothing to do with him. She doesn't trust him and she doesn't believe he is home for good. After a series of pranks being played on Joshua, a buggy accident, Luke's threats, a quick marriage, and the arrival of Joshua's parents, will Joshua and Annie find the love they have for each other? Will Joshua's lies and secrets come out? I must admit at the end of this book I was shedding tears. Why the tears? Let me just say I was caught off guard by the emotion. It touched my very soul. Patchwork Dreams, A Harvest of Hearts, and Promised to Another was a fantastic series. Author Laura V. Hilton knows how to write great Amish fiction. I can't wait to see what this Author publishes next! Thank you Laura for providing me with this advanced copy of Promised to Another to read and review. The opinions expressed are mine alone.

    A Must Read for 2012!!!!!!! I just finished with "Promised

    A Must Read for 2012!!!!!!!

    I just finished with "Promised to Another" and I absolutely loved it. It was FANTASTIC and is my favorite out of the series. I could not put the book down all weekend, except of course for Easter dinner;. I didnt want the book to end ,but I know all great books must come to an end sometime.

    Laura V. Hilton just keeps you on the edge of your seat. The ending will surprise you.

    ~ Annie Beiler is a spirited schoolteacher, but she's struggled ever since the man she was promised to "jumped the fence" and left the Amish of Seymour. She's in danger of losing her job because she took her students on an unauthorized field trip.

    Annie caught the attention of Joshua Esh as soon as he moved from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to Seymour, Missouri. He's disheartened when he finds out that she is promised to another fella-Luke. Joshua talks to other girls but Annie.

    Luke Schwartz, who left the Amish, vowed to return one day and one day claim "his" Annie.
    Luke and Joshua are fighting over Annie. Alone God knows what will become of the triangle of tension.
    Who will end up with Annie Beiler??

    Amish Romance

    This is the third and final book in the Amish of Seymour Series, and I for one wish there were more.
    Love that their are updates of the people we learned to love in the first two books!
    Annie Beiler wants to be an Amish Frau and Mother, she loves being a teacher to the Children of her Community. She is also starting to live again since being jilted by her fence jumping boyfriend Luke Schwartz. Now that he has returned, he is adamant that she is his and they are getting married. Kind of freaky! She has her eye on Joshua Esh, one of the transplants from Lancaster Pa.
    Joshua, is know as a "player" in this Amish Community, he actually cares for Annie, but has been told she is Lukes! Some odd and some terrifying things take place in this story, and you will wonder who is going to end up with whom, and if everyone will live!
    It will keep you on your toes, and become a real page turner. You don't have to have read the other two books to enjoy this one, but don't miss them either!

    I received this book from the Publisher Whitaker House, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Wonderful series

    I have been fortunate enough to read all three books in the Amish of Seymour series and have become a Laura V. Hilton fan. She has the writing skills to easily transport the reader right into the heart of the stories that she is telling, allowing me to envision the characters, setting and drama so vividly it makes me feel as if I have been transported to another place.

    In "Promised To Another" we get the story of Annie Beiler and Joshua Esh. Annie is the local Amish schoolteacher, she is always excited about history and learning which often gets her in trouble and puts her teaching job in jeopardy, something she can't afford to lose. You see her steady beau Luke Schwartz jumped the fence to become English and no one else has even noticed her, or at least that's what she thinks. When Luke makes an unexpected appearance after a singing and offers to take her home she turns him down flat but her refuses to listen, that is until Joshua Esh steps in and offers her a ride home, a rider home with the other girl he is already taking home. While the men who came to Seymour from Pennsylvania came looking for wives Joshua didn't instead he came to see a different part of the world but has plans to return to PA. He has earned the reputation of a player because he is always taking a different Amish girl home after singings, but that doesn't stop Annie from noticing him.Thing is Luke has decided to join the church and marry Annie and doesn't want to take no for an answer. Is Josh really a player or does Annie have the wrong idea about him? Will Annie give in and do what Luke wants or will she realize that there just might be someone else for her after all.

    The beginning of this story started out a bit predictable but then the author started throwing in several different plot twists that had me changing my mind. I thought the characters in the story seemed very realistic, especially Annie. I could totally understand her love of history and wanting to share it with her pupils. I enjoyed getting to know the different sides of Annie, there was the Annie who stood strong when her beau left her, but we also got a glimpse of an insecure Annie wondering if she would ever have someone of her own, we also saw someone who had a zest for teaching and wanted to share her love of learning with her pupils even though the board members didn't always see things her way. I thought Josh was a good male lead, and while he kept a secret from Annie I still liked him. I liked the unconventional twist the relationship took toward the end of the story.

    If your a fan of Amish fiction then your going to want to read this story. Even though it's the third book in The Amish of Seymour series it can easily be read as a stand alone work although this series is so good that your going to want to read all three books. On a scale of one to five I would easily give this whole series a six because it's just that good!

    A copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
