The Promise by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley


Written by two great authors, this was a romance novel different than any other. In most novels, two people meet and fall in love, and the story ends there. Instead, this one picks up in the middle, with a marriage well underway, complete with children, and the stresses of life. Tom has a dark secret he feels he can’t tell Jean. So on it goes, month after month. He knows he needs to tell her, but he just can’t bring himself to do it. All the while, Jean feels she is losing her husband and maybe he is being unfaithful. But she has a little secret of her own which can only complicate things.

As the story goes on, you see a family’s love. You can see how they have all made past mistakes and are trying to undo the bad legacy they have created with a new one filled with hope, and of following God.

This was a sweet story, and one I could more relate to since it’s the middle of a marriage, not just the starry-eyed newlyweds. A very good read!
