    Keeping Promise rock starts out with a bang. Literally. The stor

    Keeping Promise rock starts out with a bang. Literally. The story starts in Iraq then goes back to when Crick first met Deacon and why. The story encompasses both men’s lives in a very sweet interesting way. This book is also well written and formatted and so easy to read with chapters separated with catchy chapter titles that pull you into the next chapter like magnets. No page numbers or author names in the middle of the page like in most eBooks s I have read. 
    Crick met Deacon when he was eight and was immediately stricken; Deacon is several years older but was drawn to Crick immediately. Deacon and his father took in lots of young boys as muckrakers   on the ranch and helped them to have better lives. Crick was special to both Deacon and his father.  Crick new in his teen years that he was gay and that deacon was the one for him, even though he though Deacon was straight he was happy to have a deep relationship together. 
    This is such a beautifully written story of a love that can survive anything and boy is there lots of obstacles in the way here.  Once you pick this book up be prepared, you won’t want to put it down. There are twists and turns on every page. You will laugh and cry and sigh. A lot.
    I recommend this story if you like lots of characters, including, Soldiers, cowboys (ranchers) EMT’s and young children having to grow up fast. If you like drama, twists and turns, enduring love, and just a darn good story I highly recommend this one. Grab some tissues, cocoa and your cuddly blanket and settle down for a great book!
