The Promise by: Beth Wiseman
A very thought-provoking book based on a true story. What if the reason for doing what you did was a lie? Mallory Hammond had one goal in life: to fulfill the promise she made to her dying cousin. She was unable to fulfill that promise, so she set out to find another way to do it: all the way across the world.
Mallory made a promise to her cousin. Many years later, she is finally able to fulfill that promise. But will it be at the cost of her own life? As she travels across the world to fulfill this dream, cultures clash and she may not make it out alive.
Tate Webber loves Mallory, but knows she cannot live her life in peace until she has saved a life. When that journey takes her overseas, she takes his heart with her. It’s a different culture, different men, different way of doing things. Mallory is unprepared for what she encounters. Can she make it back home?
Will she realize before it’s too late who she really loves? What if the unexpected happens? Was this what was supposed to happen all along? God can use our plan to accomplish His will. Tate believes this; he puts Mallory’s well-being in God’s hands. A riveting story of faith, hope, love, and trust in the God who can use us to fulfill his purpose.
