    One thought on “The Promise”

    1. Wow What a great book This was one of those where I stayed up very, very late, against my better judgement, because I could not stop reading The concept behind this book was intriguing, the action kept moving, and it was just an enthralling read in general I love many books, but few captivate me as The Promise did.Mallory, the main character, ends up making a dangerous journey to Pakistan to possibly marry a man in name only as a desperate attempt to save his leukemia ridden daughter Unique stor [...]

    2. I used to read a lot of Amish Christian type reads, and when I saw a Beth Wiseman book on Net Galley I requested it, seeing as it was the kind of books I used to enjoy I thought I would travel back and read one of hers as I have read ones written by her previously.I have to say though, this is NOT at all what I expected The Beth Wiseman books I have previously enjoyed I cannot fault, but the topic in this one left me a bit yawny and although I finished it from front page to last page, I can hone [...]

    3. The fact that this story is inspired by actual events amazes me My goodness This story had me hooked from the prologue You start the story off with such hope as Mallory has wonderful news for her cousin, but we come to find out years later, her hope was crushed and a new desire has come in to play.Mallory is a girl who has a deep passion to help someone She suffered a trauma when she was younger and it has haunted her ever since As I progressed into the story, Mallory came off as a girl who was [...]

    4. I wasn t sure what to expect from reading The Promise It definitely turned out to be quite different than what I thought it would be The story deals with the aftermath of 9 11 in some ways, specifically with air travel, security, and how both Americans and Muslims felt towards each other There was definitely a lack of trust created from those terrorist attacks and the subsequent reactions.The story revolves around a woman, Mallory, in her young 30 s whose tunnel vision for what she believes she [...]

    5. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.Oh my gosh Wow This was such an amazing book A little background first, and perhaps this will explain why this book hit so close to home for me When I was younger, and carefree, and thought love made the world go round, I fell in love with someone online and moved to another country, another continent It was pre 9 11, and certainly in a safer place in the world than Mallory chose, but I was still in a culture shock, a [...]

    6. Mallory is driven by a promise she made to her dying cousin when she was a teenager Her cousin was dying because she couldn t get a kidney transplant, and Mallory s parents wouldn t let her donate one Mallory promised her cousin she would save a life Now Mallory is an adult, and is all set to make a kidney transplant, when she finds out she has a rare gene that won t allow her to transplant one She is shattered, and desperately looks for a new way to fulfill her promise That isn t the only thing [...]

When seventeen year old Mallory wasn t allowed to donate the kidney that would have saved her cousin s life, she made a promise to herself that one day she would do it She would save a life Twelve years later, she has another opportunity, but her parents aren t going to like this one either, because it involves a trip to Pakistan and a sick teen And her long term boyfriend, Tate, isn t happy either.I quickly discovered Mallory is my least favourite kind of fictional heroine noble, academically b [...]

    8. 3.5 stars I had no expectations going into this book, as I haven t heard anything good or bad about it the synopsis was incredibly vague, but I think that s the best way to go into reading this knowing nothing It had absolutely nothing to do with what I had thought it was going to, which actually a really nice surprise lol The storyline is unlike anything I have ever read before, which I greatly appreciated because I have been looking for something new and not romancy, and although the main two [...]

    10. Intense Frustrating Eye opening The author Beth Wiseman personally knows the young woman whose experience this story is based on and does an amazing job bringing the realities of the other side of the world to the page Told from multiple points of view, the reader is able to sense that not all is what it seems Mallory s compassionate and emotional nature overrides her common sense and she is focused solely on having an amazing life experience despite the warnings and red flags that she chooses t [...]

    11. I do not give a 5 star rating lightly My record this year is awarding 5% of my reads a 5 star rating The book has to be phenomenal or move me dramatically I ve read one other book my Beth Wiseman, The House that Love Built, and that was an enjoyable contemporary romance The Promise was simply amazing.I read this novel, which was based upon a true story, in less than 24 hours In the final pages, I couldn t read quickly enough to keep up with the suspense.This novel was about a young woman named M [...]

    12. Just a few notes I listened to the audiobook of this title performed by Rebecca Gallagher.The narrators voice was pleasant and I would gladly listen to another performance.As for the book, it was well written and entertaining I found the main character to be likable even though she made a few really poor foolish gullible decisions These choice ultimately serve to test and refine Mallory s faith.Over the course of the story I gained new insights into Islam as well as Muslim customs and traditions [...]

    13. Oh my gosh This book had me on my toes the whole time, never knowing what was going to happen next I got to points in the books were I was literally shaking from head to toe I definitely liked all of the new informaton that I learned about Pakistan and also learning about their religion I would most definitely reccomend this book, especially if you like learning about different cultures and religions.

    14. The Promise kept me glued to the pages I was agreeing with Mallory, yelling at her, and fearing for her life Great read.

    17. Considering that this book is based on a true story, I had truly high hopes for it The premise sounded enticing and incredibly interesting But it failed short in delivery The Promise had me bored to tears at times, with interludes of excitement and genuinely good writing, which only showed me how much better the entire book could have been if the Author would have put a little effort into the story The good part is, that it is not such an in your face Christian story, that someone who is not Ch [...]
