Return to Promise Book Review

I was ready to read the last installment of the Heart of Texas book series even though it was a little bitter sweet.  Return To Promise by Debbie Macomber was the eighth and final book in the series.  I can't believe that I have read through another good series and I am at the very end.  I can always hope that she adds more but I don't know if that is going to happen.

The town of Promise, Texas, is a good place to live, to raise a family, to spend the rest of your days with the person you love.  Cal Patterson and his wife, Jane—also known as Dr. Texas—certainly think so. The last thing they expect is a threat to their marriage. But in September, disagreements begin to escalate—with the "help" of an attractive young woman who's got her eye on Cal.
After months of emotional upheaval brought on by doubts about their marriage, the two separate, and Jane returns to her childhood home in California, taking their children. Cal, now alone on his ranch, is forced to confront what he really wants in his life, what he needs. Jane is confronting the same questions…. How seriously does Cal take his marriage vows? And how important is Promise to Jane? Is there hope for a reconciliation—in time for Christmas?

This book was the most emotional book for me because it was going through the ups and downs of the Patterson's marriage in the middle of stressful time.  Jane's father is sick and she is torn between taking care of her husband and children versus her mother and father.  With siblings to help, Cal hopes that he won't take a back seat but after having his wife away for over three weeks, he is starting to loose hope.  There is a lot going on in this book and it is very sad although there is always hope in Promise.  I hope that you check out this book and others in the Heart of Texas series at your local library or bookstore soon. I know that you will enjoy them as much as I have.
