This is a captivating love story. It vividly shows the nobility of the human spirit and the deep compassion and love by a man and a woman for each other. Forced apart from his high school sweetheart, the protagonist, Nick Parker became a successful adventurer and diamond miner before returning in search of the love of his youth. His discovery requires great sacrifices that permanently change his life. The title's promise is revealed in ways that the reader cannot imagine, and plays a pivotal role in resolving the emotional wringer that awaits readers as they search for the secret that separates and binds Nick Parker and Tracy Evans. The twist at the end provides a needed resolution to a heartfelt yet deeply disturbing journey. What haunts me most is wondering, to what degree Reunion Promise may be based on a true story, a thought suggested by the second dedication at the start of the book. This is a great American love story that will break your heart and heal your soul.

Reunion Promise is a unique and engrossing story. Rarely does the reader see so clearly what happens when love flows like a river from the human heart, and, I would add, without being drowned in sentimentality. The story is narrated by Nick Parker a successful owner of a diamond business who returns to Santa Rosa for his 25th high school reunion. His one goal is to find out what happened to Tracy Evans, the girl he adored, and her promise to contact him when the time was right. Nick tells his story through a series of flashbacks that contrast the successful businessman of the present with his adolescent days and later, as the story unfolds, his adventures in Africa to build his diamond business. I am particularly drawn to four aspects of the story: 1. Teenagers, in spite of their awkwardness and inexperience, are capable of understanding what their hearts are telling them. 2. It is very difficult, however, for teens to find their own way without help and support from their family, friends, and community. 3. Love flows from an open heart to everyone. An open heart leads to an open life, a life worth living. 4. Love that is shared with others returns bringing with it new discoveries, joys, and challenges. While books often deal with one or two of these themes, Reunion Promise deals with all four. That's why this book is so unique. Not many authors explore the voluntary commitment that love brings and follow that commitment across a lifetime.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book (initially I suspected I wouldn't because I thought it fell into the "chick flick" category, which it does not), and as equally important, my wife did too. Once she started she would not put it down until it was finished, so I lost her for a couple days. So be forewarned. I found myself living vicariously in Nick Parker's exploits, Dr. Johnson obviously knows whereof he speaks and I regarded his book as a diamond business tutorial for me laced with adventure, recollection of some memorable high school moments (which we've all had) and fun .... and oh ya, romance for the girls. Four and a half stars for me.
