Mallory embarks on her dangerous journey only to discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. And Mallory can only pray that she will make it out alive.

Inspired by actual events, The Promise is a riveting love story that asks the question: how far will we go for love?

“Takes readers to a place where promises mean something very different than expected, and where her protagonist realizes that the life that needs saving is her own. . . . Wiseman draws readers into a world of deception, danger, and defiance. Readers will feel the anguish of Mallory’s loved ones as they pray for her to make it home.” —Booklist 


This was an exciting book that takes you on a trip around the world and back.  The author keeps you in the thick of things as you follow the main characters through dangerous terrain and heart stopping adventure.  While it is a love story, there is much more too it than that.  Wiseman focuses on God’s love and protection when your world comes crashing down around you. I could hardly put it down until I was able to finish!
