Start your review of Ella's Promise (Great War Great Love #3)
In Ella’s Promise, the third installment in the Great War Great Love series, Ellen Gable delivers another sweet romance filled with faith amidst the horrors of wartime France.

Ella’s intelligence, integrity, and determination make her an admirable heroine and perfect match for compromised Allied spy Garrett Smith.

Best of all, the series ends with a satisfying post-war glimpse at all of the couples in the series.

Ellen Gable: she doesn't disappoint. M'girl just keeps getting better, and Ella's Promise is proof. IMHO, this one is the most exciting of the Great War Great Love trio.
Spy novel AND romance! James Bond's got nothing on Gable's leading male character Garret Smith. (And I'm quite sure Garret Smith is more deserving of readers' love and admiration!) And what woman would not sympathize with and admire Ella Neuman, a beautiful example of Christian charity in the midst of the horrors of WWI?

I have read all three books in this series. I know I am not the intended audience. But I absolutely loved this book and the whole series. They are Christian Historical Romance, but there is so much of the historical that I read it, and was captivated by the history, the way story, and the relationship though a centerpiece was so well written I could not put the book down. Over the last several years I have read a number of non-fiction books about Military Chaplains, and this book is not about a ...more

This latest installment in the Great War Great Love series delivers another great story! Ella’s Promise is a meaningful historical romance that follows the journey of a selfless nurse and a complicated soldier. Can Ella and Garrett find hope and joy while immersed in the hardships of war?

What begins as friendship soon blossoms into more. But during wartime, nothing is simple, and both characters are severely tested. Ella’s Promise features secrets, espionage, courage, risks, and sacrifices. Crucia

This is the third book in the Great War, Great Love trilogy by Ellen Gable. While this book is part of a series about young couples who meet amid the heartbreak of war, it is a standalone book as well. There are a few characters that are in each of the books, but this story is mostly about Ella, a young American woman working at a field hospital during World War I.

It’s hard to know for sure since I enjoyed each of the wonderful books in this series, but I do believe this is my favorite of the t

Though I've read a number of book series over the years, there's part of me that's kind of frustrated with them.

Can't we just have one book? JUST ONE? PLEASE?

And yet, I'm torn, because I ALSO don't want those beloved characters to go away. They're part of me, and I'm invested in their stories, their worlds, their ways of being.

So, here I am, reading series of books (and sharing about them quite often in my newsletter), eagerly snatching up the opportunity to r

This standalone novel concludes the "Great War Great Love" series, and I'm sorry to see it end. As a whole, the series has been a fascinating look at a time period we don't read about much. Ella Neumann, the daughter of Germans who emigrated to the USA long before the war, is a volunteer nurse in France. Having been a medical student at home before the war, she hopes her experience will land her a coveted place as a surgical nurse, but her supervisor doesn't trust her because of her ethnic backg ...more
