Obenhaus, Mindy. A Father’s Promise. Toronto, ON: Love Inspired, 2020.

We have a God who takes bad situations and turns them into something wonderful. Romans 8:28 plays out in so many ways – in all things God truly does work for the good of those who love him. Mindy Obenhaus has taken this truth and incorporated it into a wonderful clean romance in A Father’s Promise. Readers will learn about many heart breaking stories in the lives of Laurel and Wes but they will also learn the good that comes from those situations. God is at work even when we don’t realize it. Mindy Obenhaus has created likeable characters who learn to trust God in all things. The imaginary town of Bliss, Texas has a laid-back, hometown feel to it – the kind of town where everyone knows everyone, cares for everyone, and everyone takes things as they come.

It sounds like A Father’s Promise is just the first book in a series about Laurel, her friends, and their lives in Bliss, Texas. I look forward to visiting this rural community again in the future. 

A Father’s Promise is an adult clean romance novel, but it would be appropriate for a K-12 Christian school library. I think that high schoolers and even older middle school students would enjoy it. It is just the kind of romance story so many high school and college-age girls gravitate toward, just with a Christian theme running through it.

I want to thank JustRead Publicity Tours for the complimentary copy. This is my honest review.
