The Promises She Keeps (Book Review)

Here, for my Soli Deo Gloria sisters & everyone, is a review of one of the latest books I’ve read…

Healy, Erin. The Promises She Keeps. Thomas Nelson, Nashville, 2010.

I would have bought this book just for the cover illustration. It perfectly captures the danger and suspense that the book serves up.

Promise, a singer who expects to die young from cystic fibrosis, wants to be remembered by people. But then she apparently starts cheating death. Can she keep doing so?

Porta, a sorceress who expects to find the secret to immortality, wants power over people. So far she has power only over her son, Zack.

Chase, a man with autism, carries visions and messages — while Chelsea, his twin sister, carries a lot of responsibility.

All four of their paths criss-cross as Healy weaves together seemingly unrelated threads from their pasts. Warning: while most pieces of the puzzle eventually fall into place, don’t expect all your questions to be answered. Still, I found this uncanny suspense story both touching and satisfying.
