For twenty years, Lily Johnson's life, albeit a life of lies, is good. Then her daughter falls in love and Lily's world goes upside down.

Her daughter's fiancé turns out to be the godson of her daughter's biological father, Alex Cabot. The Green Beret Lily thought died in Vietnam. When Alex and Lily meet face-to-face, the years melt away and old passion returns.

Only he believes she betrayed her promise to wait for him. And, Lily's convinced revealing the truth would mean losing her daughter and the only man she's ever loved.

Can a love, sidetracked by war, be rekindled when the child born from that love feels betrayed or will Lily's original, well-intended lie cost her the only man she ever loved and her daughter?

WONDERFUL CONCLUSION! This is the continuation of Ace/Alex and Lily after the war. Friends and family lie and withhold information that could change the course of both their lives, but think they are doing it for good reasons. Surprises and twists add more dramatic dimension to the story. You pull for them throughout the entire book. It proves that true love does last and can conquer all odds.

Heartwarming tale about second chances, love and forgiveness. The author takes you inside a family of military men and women, giving a sense of the bond they share and the unique hardships they endure. Alex and Lily were dealt a cruel hand twenty years ago, but their paths cross again and hope renews amid the chaos. The way the secrets and lies wrap up at the end are well done. This was a terrific plot. The language was clean and the intimate scenes were PG, yet full of emotion. A few grammar issues, but the story was too important to be a major factor. I will return to this author.

Packed with well-intended lies, well-meaning cover ups, and gut-wrenching heartache, this story takes you on a journey of a special kind of love. I fell in love with Alex from page one. What he had to endure, and what so many of our men and women in the armed forces have endured, should never be forgotten. He is truly the epitome of the word 'hero'. Being the one left behind, Lilly wove a web around herself to survive. But how fragile webs can be when they're based on lies. A wonderful book that kept me turning the pages!

This moving story begins in the Vietnam era when Lillian "Lily" Reed meets Alex "Ace" Cabot, the love of her life. Like so many couples, circumstances of war tore them apart. Alex became MIA, a prisoner of war for six hellish years. Thinking him dead, Lily, a young and naive preacher's daughter, begins her path of deception with a lie, perpetrated with good intentions--or at least a choice between the lesser of two evils. The deception grows into a tangled web that holds her captive and frightened many years later when Alex, as if by fate, reappears in Lillian Reed Johnson's life just as her beloved daughter is about to be married. From the moment that Lily and Alex's paths cross again, it's obvious that the fierce spark is still there, but now Lily is the prisoner of her deception and the convoluted web of lies she has spun to protect herself and her family. Is there any way out? Alex pushes hard to win her again. Can she rekindle the star-crossed relationship with Alex? How many lives will be torn apart if she tries? The Pendant's Promise is a complex and emotional tale, woven slowly and exquisitely, through the connections of an extended cast of well-drawn characters you will come to know as you struggle with Lily and her conscience and the far-reaching consequences of a life built on a lie. You'll need a hanky for this one. Good job, Judythe!
