It¿s the late 1800¿s. The country is at war with itself. Brother fights against brother, sister against sister. In the midst of heavy fire, Doctor Vance Phelps is trying desperately to save just ¿one more soldier¿. Her desperation proves to be an act that costs her dearly. Mae is a woman working in what some call ¿the oldest profession.¿ Two women from opposite ends of life come together under the most unusual of circumstance. Vance, looking for a place to heal, arrives in town for a job assisting the local doctor. There she meets Mae, along with Jessie Forbes and Jessie¿s lover, Kate Beecher, who were first introduced to readers in the dramatic book, Innocent Hearts. Soon the four women find themselves involved in something that poses danger to two of the women, but which two? When they band together to confront the danger, will they be able to stop it before it costs them everything? Amidst the turmoil, hope arises for Vance as she realizes her feelings for Mae have changed. She knows Mae and Jessie share a history, but does she really care? Vance had never planned on finding someone to share her life with having resolved herself to a solitary life. For the very first time, she dares to hope. Will Mae, who has learned to separate her emotions from the ¿duties¿ of her work, allow herself to accept Vance¿s feelings with all that she is and all that she isn¿t? They say time heals all wounds. Will promises of a new love be enough to heal their wounds, the ones inside as well as out? Will they find that ¿one¿ reason to hope and latch onto it? Radclyffe, the author of more than 20 books, has long ago proven she is a force to be reckoned with in giving readers dynamic, action-packed, and thoroughly dramatic stories. In telling the story of Vance and Mae, who despite the odds stacked against them, dare to take a stand, Promising Hearts is another tremendous example of why this author¿s work remains on the bookshelves of many a reader!

Promising Hearts picks up where its predecessor, Innocent Hearts, leaves off and it does not disappoint. Radclyff is a master at building suspense and exploring the emotions surrounding being different during an early part of American history. She hypothesizes about what life might have been like for lesbians back when no one had heard of or acknowledged such a thing in post-Civil War Montana. Her attention to detail, credible characters and ability to tell a good love story make this an entertaining, fast read.
