"Fremont’s Promise" by Kathryn Spurgeon Book Tour and GiveAway

About the Book

Book:  Fremont’s Promise

Author: Kathryn Spurgeon

Genre: Historical

Release date:March 16, 2021

Every time Sibyl visits her mother, she’s criticized, shamed, and leaves in tears. The only thing that can calm her is Fremont’s assurance to move them to a place they can share their faith more freely. While her emotions bounce from frustration to despair, she holds on to the belief that God can help her family.

Fremont, a former hobo, promises to find  a better paying job and spirit his wife away from this unstable family. But only God can work that miracle.

If you love family sagas and drama based on true stories, you will love this book. The 1930s and 40s were a time of difficulty but hope carried them through.

"Fremont’s Promise" by Kathryn Spurgeon is book 3 of the "Promise" Series". I think a reader would enjoy this book even if they haven't read the other two. But again, I am glad I read them all just to have the background to the events mention in this novel. 

This is a series based on the author's real family. I felt like I was watching the events unfold as I was reading. There were a few times I felt the tears starting because the heartache Sibyl and Freemont had to endurance.  There were certainly plenty of disappointments but I am glad that they kept their faith through it all.

The ending, when Sibyl and Freemont were remembering all that God had brought them through, makes  this reader want to write down all that God has done for me. 

This is a novel that clearly shows God is with His children in the bad times and in the good times. 

I received a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these are my own opinions.
