About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
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.

Prior to reading The Promise, I had only experienced novellas by Beth Wiseman (“A July Bride” and “When Christmas Comes Again” – both thoroughly enjoyable, by the way), so I was very interested to see what she could do in a full-length novel. And Wiseman’s The Promise definitely satisfied my curiosity and left me completely impressed. An excellently engaging story so different than the ones I usually read, it has even more to offer than the intriguing back-of-the-book blurb gives away – and is incredibly based on true events, too. Wow. I had no idea that the sort of deception and manipulation Mallory experiences actually happens, and that is utterly mind-boggling. On more than one occasion, my heart broke for Mallory, who just wants to do a good deed, and her unfortunate circumstances. Her journey is emotional, heartfelt and culturally fascinating and I couldn’t stop reading until I knew how it ends. Incredibly worth a read, The Promise is a book I would recommend. Read it.
