This is the last book of the Country Road Chronicles series. It is January in 1946, and Sarah Wortham and Frank Hammond are engaged to be married in June. Before they get married though, they both have some obstacles to overcome.

Frank is about to set out for a trip of over 200 miles to Camp Point, on unfamiliar roads, to help his oldest brother move. Sarah is very worried about him, not only because of the possibility of being caught in bad weather, but Frank has a learning disability and cannot

This story of Frank and Sarah was a little different from ones I usually read but a good one. Frank was different from most young men but that did not stop Sarah from loving him and the two of them had an interesting courtship and I was happy to see them overcome challanges in their lives. I was esp sad to learn that the author of this book died in an automobile accident along with her son while I was reading it. The world has lost a great story teller and she will be missed.

This is the final book in the Country Road Chronicles. Sadly, Leisha Kelly and her teenage son were killed in an auto accident a few years ago so there will be no further books. (A teenager was speeding in the opposite lane, lost control, crossed over to the other lane and hit the Kelly vehicle. It is believed that she and her son were killed instantly.) She and her family were devout Christians. I know that this strong faith must have been of comfort as the survivors grieved this terrible loss. ...more

This is my new favorite series of books. Oh how I came to love these two families who eventually merged into one. Each book in this series teaches strong Christian principles without becoming preachy. I love the lesson of learning to trust in the Lord regardless of the circumstances or how hard life is treating you. Not only did I love the lessons but I came to love each of these characters with all their flaws. I am only saddened that there will be no more stories of the Wortham family. Now all ...more

The only one I haven't read yet---hasn't shown up at my library and I'm gettin impatient!

I read the whole series from the beginning, starting with Julia's Hope. With each book I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen with the Wortham and Hammond families. I had read in one comment that this final installation summed up the families. I'm sorry to say, but I was a little disappointed. It seemed when they were at their reception things kind of jumped from reception to honeymoon really fast. As far as I'm concerned, I would have liked to known what happened with Rorey and Eugene- ...more

Shelves: inspirational

The fifth and most recently published book by Leisha Kelly, Sarah's Promise sees Sarah, whom we've first met at six years old in Julia's Hope, marry.
Not to spoil the book, will she go through with her marriage to neighbor, Franky whom she'd grown up with almost as brother and sister? Does Frank have the calling? Will Donald Mueller's persistence and his tempting offer and win Sarah over? Will Franky leave town and make a go of his woodcarving business despite his inability to read or will he tak

When I started the 1st book in this series, I didn't find it very interesting, but the characters grew on me as I read on. By the time I got to this book I could hardly put it down. It is a wonderful lesson in breaking away from negativity thrown at a person in the past. I was sorry to see this series end.
Nov 02, 2013 Jenny rated it it was amazing
I've read all the books about this family and loved the series. There was a lot of emphasis on faith that God will provide. I also loved the idea of living on a farm with/near family and everyone working together.

this is the final book in the series- it started during the Depression, worked thru World War 1 and now its winding up with Sarah and Franky getting married! They are a Christian fiction series and an easy read

This is the last book in the Country Road Chronicles. I think it is the last book Kelly wrote about the Hammonds and Wortham families. It is the love story between Sarah Wortham and Frank Hammond.

A very sweet story about trust. The book jacket describes this book as a "satisfying" conclusion to the series, and it is. I am sorry to see the series end.

This was a great book - the the third in the series. An inspiring story of letting God have His way in our lives.
