I was drawn right into The Promise simply because it was so different! It didn’t start out like any other book I’ve read and so I was curious! Most books are so predictable these days it’s hard to get into when you can guess from the beginning pretty much how it’s going to end.
What do you think of when you see the title? I thought the promise would be something about a love a love story but it was nothing of the sort! Mallory does have her own love story but the promise was one made to her dying cousin. Unable to save her, Mallory vows to save someone in this life. She seems to lose sight of everything else until she can fulfill that promise.
It’s good to be accountable to ourselves and be true to our word. But at what cost? Mallory is about to risk everything to find out. Her journey will take her somewhere she never expected nor wanted to be. I was surprised by her actions and her determination. While I admired her for it; it also caused her to make some unwise decisions. What will it cost her?
I love Beth Wiseman’s writing and this book was no exception. It was a great, truly unique storyline with colorful characters to love and not your typical generic sorts at all.
The Promise was a great read and I can’t wait to see what Wiseman does next.

Finally, she meets a man online from a volatile corner of the world who offers her the chance to find that purpose. But she will have to leave everyone she loves behind in order to take it.

When Mallory decides to travel across the world to fulfill her dreams, Tate begs her not to go but tries to give her the space she needs. Mallory embarks on her dangerous journey only to discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. And Mallory can only pray that she will make it out alive.
