Review: The Promises She Keeps
Posted February 22, 2012on:
I have had this book for over about a year. It got lost amongst my books when I moved and so I currently found it I felt I should read and finish so I could give a long overdue review. So here we go.
The Promises She Keeps is a story about a 22 year old girl named Promise, she was born with Cystic Fibrosis, she longs to be a famous singer so that she doesn’t just fade away once she is gone. She decides to help out a student with an art piece, Zack, which ends with her death defying fall from a cliff. It causes a chain of events she never could have imagined. The incidents and months that follow help to show her that fame isn’t everything, and it’s not the only way to make an impact on the world. Only one woman can possibly put a wrench in her plans, Porta, an aging witch out to find her own immortality.
This book was hard to put down, even if it was frustrating at the beginning. Not a bad frustrating though. I felt that I didn’t know what was going, what the underling threat was. Then I reminded myself that Erin Healy has worked with the likes of Ted Dekker and I just needed to set aside trying to fit any of the story into a box.
This story would be great for teenagers and up to adults. It’s got a very uplifting message which I think is much needed in this day and age.
