Overview

Set in the magnificent Oregon ranching country, Beyond The Promise explores the powerful ties that bind families together, the wrenching conflicts that tear them apart, and the passions that drive one unforgettable woman to risk everything for a destiny more surprising than her wildest dreams. Cat Browning's moment of triumph has finally come in a Boston courtroom. A brilliant young lawyer with a promising future, she's just won her first big criminal case. But the painful realization that her skills have gotten a murderer off scott-free make her question the direction her life has taken. Putting her ambitions on the back burner, she decides to join her best friend Annie on a vacation in the tiny town of Cougar Valley, Oregon -- 3,000 miles and a world away. While the majestic splendor of eastern Oregon's ranch lands and the warm intimacy of small-town life cast a spell on Cat, it is her idyllic romance with the irresistible Scott McCullough, Cougar Valley's golden boy, that truly captures her heart. Cat is smitten, yet chooses to chalk it up to a whirlwind romance -- until Scott turns up on her Boston doorstep to take her back to the place she so quickly learned to love. Marriage to Scott is only the beginning of Cat's remarkable journey. Soon, she is swept into the complex heart of the McCullough clan, where she'll forge strong bonds with Red, her larger-than-life father-in-law; his elusive wife, Sarah; Jenny, Scott's fiercely independent grandmother; and Torie, his headstrong sister, who is determined to marry a man both families are dead set against. But when tragedy strikes and Cat suddenly finds herself a widow pregnant with Scott's baby, she must fight her way back from despair to make a new life for herself and her child. Through it all, her love and friendship with the McCulloughs will endure -- even as she finds romance with a new man. But when long-held family secrets threaten to destroy her happiness, Cat is faced with the most difficult choices of

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A promising Boston attorney finds love on an Oregon ranch in this moving romantic yarn from Bickmore (Deep in the Heart). Fresh from her first trial victory, blossoming lawyer Cat Browning visits her best friend, Annie, in the small community of Cougar, Ore. Unprepared for the beauty of the western wilderness, city-smart Cat falls in love with landscapeand with the town's handsomest bachelor, Scott McCullough. Scott whisks Cat off her feet and out of Boston to become the newest Mrs. McCullough on the family's sprawling ranch. Then, less than a year into their marriage, tragedy strikes the young couple, and Cat is forced to depend on the taciturn strength of her newly acquired family. Bickmore keeps the plot twisting at a brisk clip without overburdening the fluid story, while a host of attractive, full-bodied characters play out dramatic events against the breathtaking eastern Oregon scenery. Combining the traditions of rural life and the exploits of a spirited, untraditional heroine, Bickmore adds steamy affairs, romantic intrigue and shocking family secrets to create an entertaining story.
