The Promise by Beth Wiseman

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 fulfi ll 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 Review:

5+ Stars

Wow, fantastic story. Very powerful. Words can not express how much I loved this book. Easily a top book of the year for me. Just like Beth Wiseman's previous books she has the power to draw readers in and really feel every emotion going on. She makes you rejoice with them, feel scared for them and so much more.

I really do not want to give to much away about this book because its just that good that needs to be read and experienced by the reader. I loved Mallory's character and determination to fulfill a promise made years ago. I will warn that this is not a quick, simple beach read but a deep book with some very scary situations involved that will give you an eye opening experience. It is based on actual events that the author was close to and that makes it so much more real.

As with all of Beth's books, I loved this one too. She is a great author that I always look forward to reading. Thank you Beth for writing something out of the box and drawing me into the story so well.

* I received this book through Litfuse for the purpose of this review. Thank You!
