- Product Review (submitted on 16 June 2012):
The Promise begins with the novella after which the book is named and is followed by fourteen bite-sized short stories; perfect for those who only have time to snatch a quick read. Perfect for someone like myself.
All stories reflect the author’s ability to look into the lives of others, no doubt a result of her work as a psychologist. The thought provoking situations within many of the stories at times leave the reader sympathetic to or frustrated by the plight of others. On more than one occasion I finished a story feeling immensely grateful for the life I have lead and the people within it..
The Promise is a book for those who are interested in both the strengths and weaknesses of the human character, overcoming life’s adversities or who just enjoy a thought provoking read.
