The Promises She Keeps

I recently read The Promises She Keeps by Erin Healy which tells the story of Promise. Promise is attending college and is looking to become a famous singer in spite of health problems that ensure she will not live to old age. Promise still attempts to become well-known through her modeling and posing for art classes. There are some close encounters with death that Promise experiences which a local sorceress, Porta Cerreto, attempts to explain as the key to immortality.

Although the book was a little different, I enjoyed the characters of Chase, who is an artist who has Autism, Zack, a photographer who attends the local college, and Porta, who owns an art gallery and is, as I mentioned, trying to connect Promise to the idea of immortality. It took me a little bit of time to “get into” the book, as it was science-fiction/fantasy which is not typically the type of books I read, but, in the end, I enjoyed the book.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
