Promise...and a Vow

The town of Promise, Texas, is a good place to live, to raise a family, to spend the rest of your days with the person you love.

Cal Patterson and his wife, Jane -- also known as Dr. Texas -- certainly think so. The last thing they expect is a threat to their marriage. But in September, disagreements begin to escalate -- with the "help" of an attractive young woman who's got her eye on Cal.

After months of emotional upheaval brought on by doubts about their marriage, the two separate, and Jane returns to her childhood home in California, taking their children.

Cal, now alone on his ranch, is forced to confront what he really wants in his life, what he needs. Jane is confronting the same questions....

How seriously does Cal take his marriage vows? And how important is Promise to Jane? Is there hope for a reconciliation -- in time for Christmas?

About the author (2000)

Debbie Macomber was born on October 22, 1948 in Yakima, Washington. When she first tried her hand at writing, she had only a high school degree, was dyslexic, and was a young mother of four children. No one believed she had what it took to write a book. She eventually saved enough money to rent an old typewriter, and every night she would sit down to write. But each time she mailed a story off to a publisher, it was returned. Five years later, she received a letter in the mail from Silhouette Books saying they wanted to buy her story. Her first novel, Heartsong, was published as a Silhouette Inspiration in 1984, and it became the first romance novel ever to be reviewed in Publishers Weekly. She has written more than 150 novels since then including Back on Blossom Street, Susannah's Garden, A Good Yarn, The Shop on Blossom Street, Between Friends, and the Cedar Cove series. Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America appointed Macomber an ambassador for the national office in 1997. A three-time winner of the B. Dalton Award, she is also the recipient of Romantic Times Magazine's distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award.
