My Review

De Bruin, Michelle. Promise for Tomorrow. Benton, KY: Mantle Rock Publishing, 2019. 

We first met the characters of Promise for Tomorrow  in De Bruin’s book Hope for Tomorrow. This book picks up pretty much where the first book left off but I don’t think you’d necessarily have to read the first book in order to enjoy the second. Promise for Tomorrow does end in such a way that, while loose ends are tied up, there is the potential for additional books in the series. 

DeBruin has created characters that readers will develop a relationship with. As an educator I appreciated the one room schoolhouse and the difficulties Karen faced in that situation. I also appreciated the level-headedness and caring that Logan has for those around him. I recommend Promise for Tomorrow to all who enjoy sweet romance or historical fiction. 

There would be no problem adding Promise for Tomorrow to my k-12 Christian school library. It would be appropriate for middle school and up. 

I want to thank JustRead Publicity Tours for the complimentary e-copy of Promise for Tomorrow. This is my honest review. 


Michelle De Bruin lives in Iowa with her husband and two teenage sons. She has a bachelor’s degree in Religion with a Christian Ministry emphasis, and in Music. Michelle is the spiritual services provider for an organization that offers services for people with mental and physical disabilities. She has been a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) since 2015.

Michelle writes inspirational historical romance about people who live in rural communities. Characters that bring to life the delights of farm and small-town living, whispers of Dutch heritage, and Christian faith make Michelle’s stories distinct. A romantic at heart, Michelle is always on the lookout for glimpses of God’s love through the window of a good story. Her first book, Hope for Tomorrow, released in 2018. The sequel, Promise for Tomorrow, released November 2019.
