THE PROMISE Kindle HDX Giveaway from Beth Wiseman!

My Thoughts:
Wow, I truthfully don't know what to say about this book. It puzzled me, it captivated me, I laughed, I cried, I was mad. This book took me through the gamut of emotions. 
I was captivated and could not put the book down, but I was also disappointed that the faith message was a  overshadowed. I was interested to find out this was based upon a real life experience.  I have to say overall on the scale of 1 to 5 rating system, I give this book a 4. It kept me reading until the end, but I just wasn't sure about the whole story. I do want to include in my review that even though the story material was not my favorite, Beth's skills as a writer were very much noted and appreciated by this reviewer. I enjoy her contemporary writing very much. 

This book was provided for review purposes only no payment was received for this review. 

About the Book;

by Beth Wiseman
 
Contemporary Fiction
Thomas Nelson

Most authors draw from life experience when writing a book. However, for best-selling authorBeth Wiseman, the inspiration forThe Promise came from encounters most readers could never imagine happening in their own lives. Inspired by actual events, Wiseman describes her latest release as the largest project she has undertaken since her first book was published in 2008. 

Mallory Hammond is determined not to let her boyfriend, parents, or anyone else get in the way of her #1 goal---to save a life. She had that chance when she was a teenager, and the opportunity slipped away, leaving a void she's desperate to fill. Then a new friend she met online offers her the chance she's dreamed of. But she'll have to leave behind everyone she loves to take it.

Tate Webber has loved Mallory for years. He understands that Mallory's free spirit has to fly, and when he gives her the space she needs, he hopes that when she lands, the two of them will be in the same place and can marry at last.

In a bold move---and with lots of resistance from Tate and those closest to her---Mallory decides to travel across the world to fulfill her dream. Tate begs her not to go, but Mallory embarks on the dangerous journey to Pakistan anyway, only to discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. Her new friend isn't who he says he is. And Mallory can only pray she'll make it out alive.

Praise for The Promise:
