Title: Promise Me
Author: Richard Paul Evans
Genre: Fiction, Christmas
Beth Cardall has a secret. For eighteen years, she has had no choice but to keep it to herself, but on Christmas Eve 2008, all that is about to change. For Beth, 1989 was a year marked by tragedy. Her life was falling apart: her six-year-old daughter, Charlotte, was suffering from an unidentifiable illness; her marriage transformed from a seemingly happy and loving relationship to one full of betrayal and pain; her job at the dry cleaners was increasingly at risk; and she had lost any ability to trust, to hope, or to believe in herself. Then, on Christmas Day, as she rushed through a blizzard to the nearest 7-Eleven, Beth encountered Matthew, a strikingly handsome, mysterious stranger, who would single-handedly change the course of her life. Who is this man, and how does he seem to know so much about her? He pursues her relentlessly, and only after she’s fallen deeply in love with him does she learn his incredible secret, changing the world as she knows it, as well as her own destiny.
Reason I read this book: I read this book for a Holiday Reading challenge.
Thoughts: I had read one of Evan’s books a few years ago, so I knew what to expect: a light-hearted romance taking place during the Holiday season. I honestly didn’t have any sort of thoughts in regards to the book, except that it was nice to read something lighter than what I had been reading.
Bottom Line: It was nice light read after reading a couple of books that were weighing on me, both literally and figuratively.
