One thought on “Promise Lodge”

  1. Promise LodgeCharlotte HubbardCharlotte Hubbard takes her time introducing you to each of the characters and their problems and how they are feeling. I immediately felt as if I knew them all and was right there at the kitchen table hashing things out and praying. In no time, I was totally sucked in to their lives and the issues they were dealing with. The plot is very interesting and had me turning the pages late into the night. Be prepared not to do anything else once you start reading this wel [...]

  2. Charlotte Hubbard has really outdone herself on this one!!!!I have laughed myself silly throughout this book and I sniffled some too. The characters are so delightful!! I think though that Deborah is my favorite and then Rosetta is next. Deborah is innocent in all that happens to her. She only did what she thought was right since there was no one around. I love her strength and determination to get through her trials and tribulations against the bishops son. She keeps turning to God to help her [...]

  3. “Promise Lodge” is the first book in a new series by Charlotte Hubbard. I thought this book was as good as the books in the (Seasons of the Heart) seasons.This isn't your normal Amish story as it deals with abuse ( an husband repeatedly hits and injures his wife and the bishop is okay with this). The women in this story are unlike the other Amish women I have read about in other Amish novels, these women are independent and don't behave like the bishop believes like they should. Oh, I should [...]

  4. I have been wanting to read a book by Charlotte Hubbard for forever it seems. I finally got the chance with her upcoming release Promise Lodge. The wait was well worth it. This book was sooooo good.I liked the premise of this book. Three unmarried sisters who, along with Preacher Amos Troyer, set out to start a new Amish settlement. The sisters were unique to the Amish fiction genre as they were independent and determined. The sisters and their children were easy to like and so was Preacher Amos [...]

  7. Charlotte Hubbard has given readers another winsome book! Promise Lodge was formerly a church camp that the Bender sisters, Mattie, Rosetta, and Christine purchased. They left their former Amish community, Coldstream, due to their bishop's reaction to his son's behavior and the traumatic events that affected their lives. The Bender sisters are determined along with their faith and love to develop the land for their new community to draw others there. Their entire family joined them in this new e [...]

  8. Let me start by saying, I have been a fan of Charlotte Hubbard's books for several years. When I found out she was writing a new series I eagerly anticipated the first book.Promise Lodge went far above my expectations. I could not stop reading it.I didn't have a favorite character, I had several! Rosetta, Mattie and Christine are the founders of the Amish colony and it was a joy to get to know them! They have such courage and conviction.The dialogue is sharp and witty. There were parts of the bo [...]

  9. Since I discovered Charlotte Hubbard look forward to each her new release. I really loved the series Seasons of the Heart and I was very curious to try this new series. A great debut and a heartwarming story, clean and wonderfully written as usual.Mattie leaves her community, she wants to start another to get rid of male domination and to help her son Noah to overcome a big disappointment in love. Together with her sister Mattie tries to create a cozy retreat for women, single mothers and women [...]

  10. I was thrilled when I received an advance copy of Promise Lodge in the mail…Charlotte Hubbard is definitely one of my favorite Amish fiction authors! From the moment I begin reading, I’m pulled into the story — and whenever possible, I don’t stop reading until I’m done.This story was no different. My heart went out to Mattie, Rosetta, Christine, and Deborah — as well as the others who moved to Promise Lodge.Mattie, Rosetta, and Christine are the Bender sisters — sisters who are det [...]

  11. I was so excited when I received a copy of this book for review. Charlotte Hubbard is one of my favorite Amish authors. This book is the beginning of a new series and had me captivated until the very end. The new Amish Colony called Promise Lodge is a place for everyone to feel safe. The sisters who decided to go on this journey have made a wonderful decision. The characters in the book are very well thought out and all have strong backgrounds. I love the way that each person's story comes toget [...]

  12. This was one of those books I did not want to put down, and I was so sad to see it end. Already excited for the next book in the series! The characters really felt like people I would like to know. It was quite admirable to see the community they were building to welcome other plain people to be a part of. And, the fact that even those initially opposed to their ventures seemed to soften after exploring Promise Lodge and seeing the "promise" of a loving community and prosperity for all who choos [...]

  15. What more can a person say but great writing! All of Charlotte's books are stories you can't put down. I am friends with her on Facebook and I am always telling her that my eyes are going to fall out from read her books. I get one and i forget about the rest of the world and read nonstop. her details and facts about the amish make you feel like you are right there, watching from the yard or the porch swing, or even the doorway to the barn. If you pick up one of her books you will want to read th [...]

  16. Another great series from Charlotte Hubbard!! A small group of Amish leave their colony and start a new one, with the help of one of their bishops. They are ecstatically happy, but it seems few others from their old colony agree, insisting they are not following Amish principles. Many ups and downs ensue, but gradually it becomes clear that they are following God's leading, and their colony with many new recruits will be successful.

  17. Thank you for gifting me this book to review. (I'm a bit remiss on reading it.) I liked the book and found Charlotte Hubbard's writing style easy to read. The characters were very well developed as was the story line. I was drawn to keep reading to find out what would happen next. I would recommend the book to others that like this genre.

  18. A new series by Charlotte Hubbard for me and I love it as much as the others! In fact I read #1 and #2 this week and will get #3 from the library soon. I hope there will be more of books in the series!

  19. Charlotte Hubbard brings readers a story of faith and second chances in her new book, Promise Lodge. Christian Fiction readers who are looking for a book that tackles some of the big issues in Amish communities will find Hubbard's take a refreshing and honest portrayal of the good and the bad. Hubbard doesn't shy away from the hard questions nor do her characters turn a blind eye to violence and abuse. This is an interesting take on the Plain People.What I liked:I want to start off by saying tha [...]

  20. I was so excited to get a chance to review Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard. I am a huge fan of her other series, of all of her characters from Willow Ridge and Cedar Creek. I've read so much of those that I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the characters from Promise Lodge, but just as with the other books, the people in this story felt like instant friends. Since this is a brand new book, I will try not to give too much away.Rosetta, Mattie, and Christine have left Coldstream, along with Preac [...]

  21. It was fun reading about the characters, getting to know them, and I will get the next book in the series to see what happens next in their lives. A very nice story.

  22. I do not often read books known to have a religious flair to them, I am more into paranormal and romance. At first I passed this book up, but the more I thought about the blurb the more I wanted to read it. The blurb just made this book intriguing to me. Now that I am finished with the book, I must admit, I am so glad I changed my mind. I will also be looking into other books like this one.I really enjoyed the book and would love this to turn into a series. I would love to know more of the story [...]

  23. This was a pretty good book. It was a little choppy at times, going here, there. I will read more books by this author for sure and I love the recipes that are included!

  24. The characters are described in such a detailed and realistic manner that you immediately can identify with them. They each have their own special, little quirky ways that endear them to you. I only wish that I could meet these God fearing strong women! Their spunk and dedication to help others stick with their faith, even in the most difficult times is admirable. I must admit , I had to fight the dislike that built up in me towards one character that entered this place of peace. Neither peace n [...]

  25. Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard is set in Promise, Missouri. Mattie Schwartz, Christine Hershberger, and Rosetta Bender needed to get away from their town (Coldstream) and Bishop Obadiah (who tolerates violence against wives and turns a blind eye to his son’s activities). They bought tan old abandoned church camp and have started the Promise Lodge Colony (a place for a fresh start). They are advertising for other Mennonite and Amish people to come and join them. Everyone is working hard to [...]

  26. When the three Bender sisters come up with the idea to sell the property they had settled on, uproot themselves and their children little did they know many other lives would become undone as well – all based on a hope and lots of prayers. There was too much damage being done in the place they grew up so starting Promise Lodge on an abandoned camp ground was the perfect place to start new and when some of the other members of their community came as well the idea fully flushed itself in realit [...]

  27. Noah grimaced. "Deborah's here. Begging for my forgiveness." His brother's eyebrows shot up. "And you said--?"He thrust the canister at Roman and then walked around, checking out the progress on the remodeling. "I told her I wanted no part of courting her again."Forgiveness. It is certainly not easy to offer or to ask for and Deborah has come seeking Noah's forgiveness, but he does not plan to extend it towards his former fianc`ee. Preacher Amos is not very pleased with Noah's hardened attitude. [...]

  28. I'm not sure if you have ever read any of Charlotte's book but they are awesome. This book is an excellent example of her work. It is well written, heart warming and full of faith. My only complaint would be that her next book will not be at Promise Lodge. I would like to know how Rosetta, Truman, Mattie and Amos get together. So if you can't tell I loved her characters.Three sisters purchase an old church camp and are intending to restore it to start a new Amish community. Mattie Bender Swartz [...]

  29. Promise Lodge is the first book in a new series by Charlotte Hubbard! Charlotte has developed a set of characters that appear to be real. I could relate to several of them.When three Amish sisters decide to sell their farms to move and set up Promise Lodge, it caused concern among their former community. Since its not the Amish way for women to own land and form a new community many thought they were sinning. Rosetta, Mattie, and Christine didn't let this discourage them. Because of difficulties [...]
