THE PROMISE by Kathleen Sherwood

Connor Christianson is a successful lawyer who can pretty much have whatever money can buy. To bad he can't buy love. His terrible childhood has made him cold and indifferent to just about everyone except his dying brother, Allen. Connor plans to keep the promise he made to Allen, it just might tougher than he thought. Kaley Mills doesn't have money but she has great faith in a great God. She works in a diner and is almost finished with her teaching degree. She's doing her best to raise her daughter, Macie and giving her all the love she never got growing up. One day, Connor comes into the diner. Kaley is immediately taken with him but sees he has a troubled spirit. Her kind and bubbly personality isn't what Connor expected, nor was her great faith in God. Connor comes to her rescue a couple of times and has opportunities to observe her with Macie and realizes what a good and loving mother she is. As they spend more time together, the connection between Connor and Kaley is growing stronger. The road ahead, however, is winding and bumpy. Is Kaley's faith strong enough to see her though. Will Connor be able to let go of past hurts and reach out to God for healing? Can promises made, be kept?

WOW! What an amazing story of God's love and grace. The Promise draws you in right from the start and doesn't let you go until the last page is turned. You'll find tragedy and triumph and lots of twists and turns, which is a definite plus for me. I love stories where there is lots of interaction and dialog between the main characters and that's exactly what I found here. Connor and Kaley shared a such a strong chemistry that it really set the stage for lots of great romantic tension, which I love! Kaley was such a loveable lady. Her strong faith was a great example to Connor as well as to the reader. Connor was one leading man you won't soon forget. His strong yet tender ways will make you swoon! Macie will completely win you over with her cute personality. The secondary characters are as full of life as Connor and Kaley, which really enhances the reading experience. This was the kind of story, that when you get to the last page (although you hate to see it end) you feel totally satisfied. Kathleen Sherwood is a favorite author and I must say, this is a favorite story. One I would find myself reading again. If you enjoy a character-driven story, with lots of great romantic tension along with a great message, than I promise you, you will love 'The Promise'!
