Promise... and a Vow
The town of Promise, Texas, is a good place to live, to raise a family, to spend the rest of your days with the person you love.
Cal Patterson and his wife, Jane — also known as Dr. Texas — certainly think so. The last thing they expect is a threat to their marriage. But in September, disagreements begin to escalate — with the "help" of an attractive young woman who's got her eye on Cal.
Some of the people in Promise are from old ranching families—like the Westons and Pattersons—folks who arrived in the Hill Country more than a century ago. And then there are newcomers like Annie Applegate, who's looking for peace but finds a great deal more. She agrees to marry a widowed veterinarian for the sake of his children and discovers that marriage can lead to love.
