The Promise ~ Beth Wiseman
Excellent story, couldn't put the book down. The cover and back cover do not really give you suspense, drama, love and meaning behind this book. I am glad that I received this book for review and had to read it... I would not have picked this up in the store to read, due to the description. However, this is a book that is based on a true story and you don't really know that until you read the end wrap up by the author. What an adventure, learning experience and it rips your heart out.
I started this book and couldn't put it down, we lost the power and I was left in the dark very upset because I wanted to know what was going to happen. Luckily 2 hours later the power came back on and I got out of bed and finished the book. (of course dead the next day due to lack of sleep).
This story is about a promise that is made to her cousin when they were young to save someone's life. It is about how love, faithfulness and dedication will determine GOD's way for you. Keep faith in GOD and you will know his plan for you, even through the fear and heartache, HE will come through for you.
Buy this book, be prepared to read in one sitting. Buy for all your friends, they will love it! Best book I have read in a really long time. Keep thinking of this story line and what she went through really happens in today's world. Can't say anything bad, just wish it was a series!! Became attached to the characters, I would love for Beth to write the true story of her friend that this story is based on.
