Allison knows that she’s not the same as she was in high school. In high school, she was thin, smart, popular...and terrified.
Only one boy broke through her walls to teach her that she wasn’t alone. Five years later, that man is now her husband. But Allison’s burden is heavier than either could have imagined, and the mounting pressures of her position test their marriage bonds. If she resigns from managing the high school reunion, it means giving in to her illness.
But if she doesn't, she may lose something far more precious...
PROMISE ME is the fifth in a series of new short stories set around the crisp green San Juan Islands in Northwestern Washington. Refreshing as an iced vanilla latte and local as a salad with Ranch dressing and sesame seeds, these stories capture the essence that every journey - no matter how far - is truly about finding your way back home.
