Don Mills, Ont. : MIRA, c1999.
360 p. ; 21 cm.
Some of the people in Promise are from old ranching families--like the Westons and Pattersons--folks who arrived in the Hill Country more than a century ago. And then there are newcomers like Annie Applegate, who's looking for peace but finds a great deal more. She agrees to marry a widowed veterinarian for the sake of his children ... and discovers that marriage can lead to love. In Promise, everyone's life is a story! The people here, like people everywhere, experience tragedies as well as triumphs, sorrow as well as joy. This town, like towns everywhere, has its share of secrets. But--whether times are good or bad--you're never alone in a place like Promise. And as Annie Applegate knows, that makes all the difference.
