Title: A Promise to Remember
By: Kathryn Cushman
Review by: Sarah Katie
Andie and Melanie both lost their teenage sons in the same accident. When Melanie decides to defend her son’s legacy, things start turning sour. Andie blames herself for her son’s death. Will both learn to forgive each other and themselves?
Kathryn Cushman does an excellent job getting you to feel compassion for both mothers without holding a prejudice against either. There were many times that I had to stop reading to keep myself from crying. This is a very well written story. The pain and anguish that each mother goes through is portrayed so well that you can actually hear and feel the characters breathing. There were times I would react out loud to whatever scene I was reading because it was so intense. Both women were completely different. They came from different backgrounds, different lifestyles, but each was grieving her own child. Cushman let just the right amount of time pass between each character’s point of view.
I’m looking forward to more books by this incredible new author!
