Comments Emily's Vow

  • Lynelle Clark

    I received this book from the touring host for an honest review.There is so much depth within this book that it is hard to single out something specific but the author did an excellent work combining the historic overview with the struggles of women of that time period and their quest to learn. The story takes you back in time when America was in war with England and the women were left to do the best they could under the circumstance while it was still expected to be wife, mother and housewife [...]

    Back when our country was forming, a strong breed of people tried to make a life in the new country, only to have the British watching everyone's every move. Emily's life was good, her twin sister was about to be married, but when his life was taken during the war, and her being pregnant her would have been brother in law steps up and marries her. This throws Emily's world into chaos. The one man she pictured marrying has married her sister, but when her sister dies after giving birth, Emily is [...]

    I really enjoyed this book. Emily has made a vow to never marry with her cousin Amy and her friend Samantha. They have each made the vow for their own reasons. Emily is afraid of childbirth, both her mother and her sister died because of it. She figures if she never marries she won't have to worry about that. Her sister, Elizabeth was set to marry Jedidiah the brother of the man she secretly hoped to marry herself. But before the bans could be read a third time he was sent away to war and died. [...]

    "You needn't worry your pretty little head."Argh, is there any sentence more enfuriationg and annoying than this one? Unfortunately this sets the note for a major part of the book. There's a lot of condescension in it, usually based on the fact that Emily is a woman, when it is not about Emily's fear of loving and losing people or dying in childbed herself - hence the vow to stay unmarried the title refers to. Okay, some other part is about her falling in love (again) with her late sister's husb [...]

    "I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review."I was born in New England, and raised in a town with an underground tunnel between a barn and a house, said tunnel used during the Revolutionary War. My heart resonates with sympathy and support for stories (even fiction) based on true events in our history. As a woman, I applaud the early attempts by women to gain equal respect and rights as intelligent, thinking, capable members of society.Emily's Vow is a w [...]

  • Tiffany

    I thought this was a good read. I loved how Emily rebelled against the male views and society norms of those times. She did not adhere to the idea that women should be seen and not heard. She wanted to be an equal and have opportunities for her independence and wasn't afraid to make that known. Although I am glad she and Frank had their happy ending I was disappointed she changed her mind so quickly. Emily had strong (and emotional) reasons for her ideas. I thought she should have had a discussi [...]

    When her sister's betrothed died in the war, his brother, Frank married Emily's sister. Frank was Emily's suitor but he couldn't allow his nephew to be born outside of marriage. Emily had mixed emotions. Emily watched her sister die after childbirth, as their mother had. Women having no rights and having to obey their husbands in all things, these were the reasons Emily made her vow. Entertaining historical war romance! Though there were several "vows," from Emily and others. Emily was very naiv [...]


  • Holly Lenz

    Emily's Vow is a fun romantic adventure taking place at the end of the revolutionary war. The story is entertaining with a real sense of history. However the characters can be a little annoying at times, the violence seems glossed over, and the sexual content is unnecessary for the plot.Recommended for mature readers due to sexual content.“I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review."


  • Carole Swinford

    The first book in Betty Bolte ' s "A More Perfect Union" series is very well written containing well researched historical details. I fell in love with the strong, independent, forward thinking women. They all make a Vow but then enters the good looking men who set out to change their minds. A must read for lovers of historical romance.


  • Deb Diem

    Emily's Vow by Betty Bolte is a wonderful read. This book is a well written historical with bits of humor, drama and great characters. I look forward to reading more from Betty Bolte. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
