The Promise by Beth Wiseman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I recieved this book from booklookbloggers in exchange for an honest review.
“Mallory’s search for happiness leads her to faraway place. But there she finds heartache and betrayal. Can the only man she’s ever loved rescue her before it’s too late?
Tate Webber has loved Mallory Hammond for years. He plans to marry her someday, but not until he has his career and life in order. Mallory is in love with Tate, but his unwillingness to commit has created a rift between them. So when Mallory’s new boss introduces her to his cousin, she’s surprised by his charming, exotic ways and delights in his attention. This exciting stranger begins to sway her thinking about her lifelong dreams and her religious beliefs.
As their online relationship develops, he invites her to visit his homeland in the Middle East, promising her a traditional life based on commitment to family-something she’s never had and always wanted. In a bold move-and with lots of resistance from Tate and those closest to her-Mallory decides to leave the only life she’s ever known to meet this man on the other side of the world.
Tate begs her not to go, but Mallory embarks on the dangerous journey anyway, only to discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. Her new friend is not who he says he is. Tate must risk his life to rescue the only woman he’s ever loved. Can he reach Mallory . . . before it’s too late?”
I really enjoyed this novel. It tells the story of a young woman who wants save a life. I really don’t want to give much away on the plot, because I feel like this story is something that you need to experience from start to finish without any type of spoiling. I can say, however, that the story itself is written very well, and that the author did an amazing job in developing her characters and making you really care for Mallory.
I didn’t really have very many problems with the novel – there were a few instances where the pacing faltered a bit, but overall it was really a gripping tale!
