A Promised Forged
A Promise Forged by Cara Putman is the third book in the Buckeye Promises series formerly known as the Ohio Brides series. Kat Miller is chosen to play for the All-American Girls Professional Softball League. A league started by Mr. Wrigley to try to bring in some money since a lot of the male players had been called to join the war. Kat struggles with fitting in with the other jealous players, the long road trips and constant practices. Then there’s the reporter who wants to make a name for himself at all costs. While Kat struggles to keep her faith from faltering can she also help Jack to see his need for a renewal of his faith. This story wasn’t so much about a war-time trial baseball league as it was the story of a young girl turning into a woman. Learning to handle the hard life-lessons thrown at her along with learning to believe in herself. You felt all these struggles right along with Kat. Who hasn’t struggled with keeping God first when all around you life keeps galloping along. Mix in the thrill of getting to play America’s favorite pastime and you have the makings of a truly intriguing story.
I received this book from the Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review.
