About the Book
Book: Fremont’s Promise
Author: Kathryn Spurgeon
Release date: March 16, 2021
Every time Sibyl visits her mother, she’s criticized, shamed, and leaves in tears. The only thing that can calm her is Fremont’s assurance to move them to a place they can share their faith more freely. While her emotions bounce from frustration to despair, she holds on to the belief that God can help her family.
Fremont, a former hobo, promises to find a better paying job and spirit his wife away from this unstable family. But only God can work that miracle.
If you love family sagas and drama based on true stories, you will love this book. The 1930s and 40s were a time of difficulty but hope carried them through.

More from Kathryn
The tumultuous times of the 1930s and 40s are amazingly similar to the difficulties we face today. Read how God guided this prominent family toward greater strength and dependence on him. Based on a true story, this compelling novel is taken from handwritten biographies, personal interviews, and family research.
I have enjoyed this series and was excited for this third book. I like that the series is based on the author’s relatives, and I enjoy reading the historical aspects of the novel. I thought the author did a good job of incorporating realistic hardships (which makes sense since it’s based on a true story!) and vulnerabilities and flaws of the characters without losing that sense of hope in the story. It is easy to be transported to 1930s and 1940s Oklahoma and to visualize the setting and the scenes. I thought the spiritual elements were well woven in the novel and easy to apply to my own life as well. I liked this novel and recommend it to those who like historical fiction!
