Must read! This book is so well written and true.
3.5 Stars The Promise, is a beautifully written story. Reminding you that life is fragile. That tomorrow is never really promised. Claire, has run away from her small hometown. But within in this story. There are secrets and they aren’t revealed, basically until the character Is ready to let you know. At first, I didn’t really understand Claire and Theo’s relationship. I really questioned her whole reasoning with him. This story, does have quite a depressing feel. Maybe how it slowly moves along. And then grasps you at the last second. It did take me a couple tries to get into it, It could've just been my mood. Overall, this is really a heartbreaking read. Really, about not wanting to let go of life. Not wanting to give up....Lissa
Well, dang. I love Melody Grace. I know, when I start one of her books, that it will be full of love, trial, lots of heat, and, ultimately, the proverbial happily ever after. That last part is a given, and it's one of the reasons that I grab and devour everything she writes. And, now, THE PROMISE. Trademark Melody, from the relatable characters to the razor-sharp dialogue, the humor, the gang of friends that rounds out the story. But, oh, goodness, the feels in this one. Truly, I'm still picking up the pieces of my heart, folks, because Melody got me good with this book. I can't remember the last time I cried this much while reading a love story, and I'm sure that I will be suffering with a book hangover for quite some time. I don't want to give away any of the plot, because you truly need to experience this book as it unfolds. Let me just say that THE PROMISE is far different from any book that Melody has written to date, and, while it devastated me, it was a beautiful beautiful part of her that I am happy to have experienced. Love, happiness, despair, loss, they're all here. But what stands out the most, and what will remain, is that love surprises us when we're least expecting it, and that life is a gift not to be squandered, but to be grabbed and lived with abandon, gusto, and joy. 5+ stars for this, one of my favorites of 2016. Grab your copy, and your box of tissues, and dive in to THE PROMISE.
