After writing twenty-five romance novels, award-winning author Marin Thomas makes her women’s fiction debut with THE PROMISE OF FORGIVENESS (Available March 1, 2016; $15.00), a novel of love, forgiveness, and the unbreakable bonds of family that takes place in a small town where secrets are guarded closely.
About the book:
When it comes to family, Ruby Baxter hasn’t had much luck. The important men in her early life abandoned her, and any time a decent boyfriend came along, she ran away. But now Ruby is thirty-one and convinced she is failing her teenage daughter. Mia is the one good thing in her life, and Ruby hopes a move to Kansas will fix what’s broken between them.
But the road to redemption takes a detour. Hank McArthur, the biological father Ruby never knew existed, would like her to claim her inheritance: a dusty oil ranch just outside of Unforgiven, Oklahoma.
As far as first impressions go, the gruff, emotionally distant rancher isn’t what Ruby has hoped for in a father. Yet Hank seems to have a gift for rehabilitating abused horses—and for reaching Mia. And if Ruby wants to entertain the possibility of a relationship with Joe Dawson, the ranch foreman, she must find a way to open her heart to the very first man who left her behind.
I really enjoyed reading The Promise of Forgiveness. The characters are very realistic and easy to relate to. Some are very likeable and you find yourself rooting for a happy ending and others are not so likeable and you find yourself hoping they get what's coming to them:) Plot twists keep you guessing right up to the very end. The Promise of Forgiveness is a fun, quick read that is hard to put down!
