After years of waiting for her fianc, Geoffrey Garrett, to send for her, England-born Emmaline Bradford arrives in America, and, shocked by the conditions on Geoffrey's Kansas sheep ranch, she wishes to return to England immediately, but when Geoffrey offers a compromise, Emmaline promises to stay until spring. Original.

Publishers Description
England-born Emmaline Bradford pledged her life to Geoffrey Garrett and then bid him farewell when he sailed to America. Although Geoffrey anticipated only a short separation, several years passed before he was able to send for Emmaline. By then the fiery flame of her youthful love had all but died. Shocked by the conditions on Geoffrey's Kansas sheep ranch, Emmaline wishes to return to England immediately. Geoffrey offers a compromise: If Emmaline promises to stay until spring, he'll pay her return fare if she decides to go back to her home country. When spring arrives, will Emmaline return to England, or will she marry Geoffrey and carve out a life with him in Kansas?

More About Kim Vogel Sawyer
Kim Vogel Sawyer Thank you for stopping by! I hope you find a welcome here. As an author of inspirational Christian fiction, it is my goal to create stories that will edify God's children and offer evidence of the hope we can all possess when we place our hearts and souls in God's very capable hands. I've been asked..."Why fiction?" And the answer is simple: Even Jesus told stories to help His followers understand Who He was and His purpose for coming to earth. A story can draw one in and make an impact. Before I commit words to paper (or computer!), I spend time in God's Word and in prayer. I believe my stories aren't truly "mine," but are a joint effort between myself and the God I serve. I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit. Make yourself at home! Sign the guestbook or send a friend by, if you like. And may God bless you muchly as you journey with Him!

A good book  Sep 22, 2009
My elderly mother still reads a lot and this is her type of reading.. She loved it....
Strong Story Line and Heart Rending Emotions  Jun 5, 2009
I'll not take the time to give an overview of the story line, as most of the reviews have already done that. I'm a fairly new fan of Kim's books, having read two so far and working on a third now. This one did not disappoint. I tend to gravitate toward books that are character driven, and "A Promise for Spring" certainly fit that criteria.

The author draws a realistic picture of life during a difficult time period in history, set in a harsh land. Are the two main characters always sweet, loving, and likable right from the start? Nope. Do you want to shake them at times and tell them to grow up? Yes. Is it realistic and believable, based on the circumstances? Absolutely.

Personally, I don't care for sticky sweet, over-the-top romances where the main characters have very few faults. I'd prefer to read books that hit closer to home where the emotions are concern. How would I feel in this situation, if I'd fallen for a man years ago, then come with great anticipation of becoming his bride and he wasn't at all what I remembered? More than likely I'd have been just as ready to run back home as Emmaline.

Some reviewers have commented that they didn't like Geoffery, and felt he was too harsh and unsympathetic. While I chafed at times over his lack of understanding where Emmaline was concerned, I also sympathized with his position. He'd been longing for and loving this woman for years, with absolutely no idea that her heart had changed towards him. Everything he'd done on the ranch was based on what he believed she'd want or like. I can't begin to understand the depth of hurt and rejection a man would feel when everything he'd worked so hard for appeared to be despised, or at best, not appreciated, by the woman he loved.

I felt the author did an incredible job presenting a very difficult situation, and did so by showing both sides of the issue. Both Emmaline and Geoffery were depicted with tremendous depth and insight. Good fiction evokes emotion on the part of the reader, and I experienced a wide range of emotions by the time I finished this book...with the final one being a deep sense of satisfaction at a story well told. I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romance in a historical setting, and is willing to have their emotions and thoughts provoked beyond the typical 'light' romance.
A Tender Tale of Love  Jun 2, 2009
When an English rose is transplanted to the Kansas prairie, can anything be easy? Of course not! Even though they were betrothed five long years earlier, Emmaline Bradford no longer knows the man she meets when she steps off the train in Moreland, Kansas. For his part, Geoffrey Garrett has practically been counting the minutes till the arrival of his bride. But the nervous, sullen woman clad in black is a far cry from his dream girl.

Kim Vogel Sawyer has a gift for writing characters who struggle through adversity and come out stronger for it. In Emmaline and Geoffrey, she presents two stubborn people, each working through a pain of their own. It's not until they put their own needs aside and truly see each other that reconciliation comes.

A Promise for Spring is a lovely tale of the men and woman who worked so hard to create a new life in the sometimes harsh, sometimes beautiful prairie. I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with Emmaline and Geoffrey, and look forward to Ms. Sawyer's next offering.
Disappointing,Thoroughly Unappealing Male Lead!  May 30, 2009
After reading and loving this author's Sommerfield Trilogy.I was surprised by how disappointed I was with this book.

I couldn't stand Geoffrey Garrett! There was nothing appealing about him at all,and he did nothing at all to try to win Emmaline's heart. I found myself rooting for her to make it back to England the several times she leaves him,and I was let down each time she stayed! He wasn't the kind of man that any woman would want,and there is no romanantic development or even any chemistry between Geoffrey and Emmaline!

This was a pretty boring read,and I can't recommend it.
A Promise for Spring by Kim Vogel Sawyer  Apr 26, 2009
Kim Vogel Sawyer has been very prolific the past few years, having her first book published in 2006 and now having a total of 11 single titles with another due out this fall. I have loved all her books I have read.

Her books are soft and gentle reads, yet with much emotion, and you become so involved with the characters that you feel like you want to sit down and talk with them even after you finish reading the book!

A Promise for Spring is no exception. I usually empathize with the heroines in novels, but in this story, I felt great compassion for both the heroine, Emmaline Bradford, and the hero, Geoffrey Garrett. The young couple had been promised to each other back in England, their home country. Neither knew it would be five long years before they would see each other again, or how much each would change during that time. It reminded me of when my husband was overseas in the Air Force and I was back in KY attending college. Although our time apart was a little less than one year, we still had many adjustments to make to each other and the changes that had taken place in our lives.

Imagine traveling half a world away to marry a person whom you haven't seen for five years. Emmaline and Geoffrey have both gone through huge changes in their relationship with each other and with God. They each need to renew their faith in Him and in each other before their new life together can flourish. I hope you will buy and read this book to find out if and how a "well-bred Englishwoman" will "become a wildflower bride." Trust me, Kim won't disappoint you!
