Promises My Love

a novel

by DL Larson

Francis Frailey fears he might become as abusive as his uncle once was, so he admires his young family from a distance. His plan is lonely, but safe, until his wife Christine sneaks past his staunch decorum. With tender devotion she coaxes him beyond his wretched childhood memories to a place where trust and love grows.

The fragile bond shatters when Francis' family intervenes and he must decide if hate will rule his heart. Christine promises forgiveness will make him whole, but Francis aches for revenge. He's determined to kill his uncle and be done.

Christine's brother, Joe Douglas, has plans of his own that include asking his wife Annie to face her troubled past. But to help Christine, Joe agrees to go after Francis and bring him home. Taking his young son and nephew with him unhinges them all. Joe doesn't know if the love Francis has for his son is stronger than the hate he harbors for his uncle. Or perhaps Francis despises himself most of all. Joe fears the wrong person may end up dead.

This is one of those books that is not a simple book to review. This is an extremely complicated book with much depth, pathos, and true family grit. This is a continuation of a previous story (which I have not read), and I do feel like that hampered my true enjoyment of this novel. But patience does pay off where this book is concerned, and I was rewarded with a story that truly touched my heart and reminded me of what is important in families and life. I can give you one word of caution. There is plenty of profanity in the novel, and if you are easily offended by that, this book is certainly not for you. I was sometimes offended by the words used, but that did not figure into my rating of this book. There are no bedroom scenes, and all "intimate" scenes are between husband and wife and certainly not graphic in any way. It took me a little while to comprehend the full impact of this story, and the complexity of the characters sometimes made this hard to follow. There were a few times I had to reread portions of the story so I could understand what was going on. And I have to admit that a few times I found myself somewhat baffled concerning the story. Some of that may have been due to the fact that I had not read the first book, and some of it may have just been me.  No matter what your take on the story or book, you can be assured to come out the other end of this story with the following conclusion: "Life is precious, and nothing is too dark to make the conscious decision to end it all." The author does an excellent job at illustrating her point through and amazing story of family, tragedy, and true love. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
