Wild Geese Series Book 4



Heartwarming romance! Cynthia Owens's novel, Yesterday's Promise, is a touching and captivating love story with an Irish touch! This author never disappoints me with her Wild Geese series, stories of five boys that came from old Ireland to flee hunger and war, and start fresh in America. In her three previous stories, we followed Shane, Cathal, and Dary, and the women who now share their lives. Set in 1868 in New York City. This time, we get to read about Declan's own journey from a war doctor to living his dream by helping people and offering his talents as a doctor at the Five Points dispensary. During the war, Declan and his nurse, Valerie had fallen in love. However, after the war ended she broke her promise and returned to the man she loved dearly. Heartbroken, Declan continues with his new life until Valerie enters his life a second time! The moment they meet again, old feelings are born again between the two! Does their love belong to the past? Can Valerie and Declan overcome their past, too? What will happen to her brother Edmund, who is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder? Can Doctor Declan help him to forget his past and move on with his life? Together they will embark on a journey filled with twists and turns. Can destiny give them a second chance to live a better life? Ms. Owens really wrote a very touching story of three beautiful souls in search of hope and love!

Reviewer's Rating: 5 Stars | Content Rating: 5 Hearts | Reviewed by: Nicole Laverdure




Like the Wild Geese of Old Ireland, five boys grew to manhood despite hunger, war, and the mean streets of New York. An army doctor, Declan Morrissey fought for the survival of every wounded soldier, rejoicing when they recovered, mourning bitterly when they died. Valerie Stanton was his beautiful battlefield nurse, strong, courageous, and dedicated. He never dreamed she was an heiress, or that she’d break his heart in a desperate gamble to save the life of another man. Now that they’ve found each other again, can they overcome past deception and claim the happily ever after they dreamed of?
