The Promise
Our book club chose this book because we enjoyed the author's first book "The Personal History of Rachel Dupree." She didn't disappoint. Loved the story, the characters and the imagery. It has romance, history, and drama! I highly recommend this book to both individuals as well as book clubs. It is not often everyone in our group is in agreement.

A love story with a hurricane approaching
If you are looking a book long description of the devastating hurricane of 1900 and its aftermath, this not the book for you. While an accurate and terrifying description of the storm does appear, it is brief and secondary to the love story.
If you looking for a description of life on a hardscrabble Texas farm along with a family story, this is the book for you. The book is well written and well researched. Catherine is clearly portrayed as is Oscar.
Catherine is a pianist with a problem. The man she loves is married and now everyone knows and condemns her. In a desperate effort to get a new start Catherine chooses to marry Oscar, a man she hasn’t seen in years, and start a new life in Galvaston, Texas in August of 1900.
