The Promise, now available in paperback, received rave reviews from critics and captured the hearts of readers worldwide. Against the backdrop of the devastating Galveston hurricane of 1900, Ann Weisgarber tells a heartbreaking story with two unforgettable voices. -- Skyhorse Publishing
Just about a year ago to the day, I reviewed a novel called THE PROMISE by Ann Weisgarber. I really appreciated this novel, and I was especially impressed with the author's writing. While I admit that I wasn't sure that THE PROMISE captured my attention from the book's description, I quickly realized that this story about a young woman fleeing her hometown to marry a man in Galveston, Texas, was beautifully written; and it most definitely kept my interest. The characters were richly developed and the way the author created suspense as the hurricane neared Galveston was extremely well done.
Just this week, the paperback edition of THE PROMISE was released. To celebrate the book's release, I have a copy of THE PROMISE to share with one lucky reader courtesy of the publisher and Caitlin Hamilton Marketing & Publicity, LLC.
