Book Review: The Promise

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

Mallory's search for happiness leads her to a faraway place. There she finds heartache, betrayal---and danger.

Mallory Hammond is determined that no one will stand in the way of her goal---to save a life. She had that chance years ago, and she failed to take it, leaving her adrift and in search of the real meaning of her life. Finally, she meets a man online from a volatile corner of the world who offers her the chance to find that purpose. But she will have to leave everyone she loves behind in order to take it.

Tate Webber has loved Mallory for many years. He understands that Mallory will never be happy with him until her deepest heart's desire is satisfied. When Mallory decides to travel across the world to fulfill her dreams, Tate begs her not to go but tries to give her the space she needs. Mallory embarks on her dangerous journey only to discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. And Mallory can only pray that she will make it out alive.

Inspired by actual events, The Promise is a riveting love story that asks the question: how far will we go for love?

My Opinion

First of all, I love that this book is based on actual events! It just makes a book that more interesting when you know it really happened!

I have read many of Beth Wiseman's books before so I had high expectations for this book and they were met. I like that this one was different than most of her other Amish based books.

I was initially drawn to this book by the beautiful cover and description and was kept reading for hours and hours because of the suspense and love that centers this book!

Beth Wiseman does not disappoint again!
