Publisher's Description

The #1 bestselling author of The Christmas Box and master of the holiday novel presents a breathtaking story of the transcendent power of love.

Beth Cardall has a secret. For eighteen years, she has had no choice but to keep it to herself, but on Christmas Eve 2008, all that is about to change.

For Beth, 1989 was a year marked by tragedy. Her life was falling apart: her six-year-old daughter, Charlotte, was suffering from an unidentifiable illness; her marriage transformed from a seemingly happy and loving relationship to one full of betrayal and pain; her job at the dry cleaners was increasingly at risk; and she had lost any ability to trust, to hope, or to believe in herself. Then, on Christmas Day, as she rushed through a blizzard to the nearest 7-Eleven, Beth encountered Matthew, a strikingly handsome, mysterious stranger, who would single-handedly change the course of her life.

Who is this man, and how does he seem to know so much about her? He pursues her relentlessly, and only after she’s fallen deeply in love with him does she learn his incredible secret, changing the world as she knows it, as well as her own destiny.

Publisher's Weekly

The bestselling Evans is back with another earnest tale set around a certain holiday in December, but this time he's got something up his sleeve. Beth has everything, a loving husband, an adorable daughter ("a joyful combination of lunacy and grace"), and a great job where she works with friends. But when her daughter becomes mysteriously ill, and she discovers that her husband is dying, her perfect life falls apart. She is soon impoverished and embittered, and still can't discern the source of her daughter's illness. Then she meets a handsome stranger, who diagnoses the illness and convinces the wary Beth to trust again, only to disappear with the home equity loan he pushed her into getting. Devastated once again, Beth's resolve is tested when he returns with a truly unbelievable story. Believing him means altering the entire course of her life. Evans combines his usual holiday themes with a bizarre twist lifted straight from science fiction. Readers will undoubtedly feel attached to Beth, even as they struggle to understand the bizarre relationship she finds herself entering into. (Oct.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

Editorial Reviews

"Another magical novel. . . . The unexpected twist propels the novel forward, making the book impossible to put down. . . . Evans’ many fans will enjoy this inventive, heartwarming tale."

    Review: Promise Me - Richard Paul Evans - October 2010

    As a reader, every now and again you will read a book that will leave you thinking "WOW" that was such an awesome read. For me as I read sooo many books , when I come across a great one, it means for me that it is top of the market range. Promise Me by Richard Paul Evans was just that. Author Richard Paul Evans is known for his tales of Inspirational novels and the best thing is that they are short as well and don't take too much to digest as they are short, simple but meaningful and deep and they are written in a way that everybody will interpret something differently and once you have finished reading it , you will go away and reflect. For me personally I find his writing to be philosphical fiction.

    Promise Me reminded me of the films "The Time Traveller's Wife" and "The Lake House" with a dash of "The Ultimate Gift" and "Sundays at Tiffany's".

    In the novel we are presented in current reality of Beth who is preparing a christmas dinner and as she goes to her jewellery box , she is presented with two necklaces. Neither necklace she has ever worn. The necklaces take her back to events that happened eighteen years ago , that changed her life forever. The first was finding out that her husband was cheating on her and the necklace was a make-up present and the second was meeting Matthew who presented her with a necklace. However both had dark secrets, Marc -Beth's husband was dying and only had 3-6 months left to live and Matthew was from the future. Beth then tells the story of her life events leading up to the present where we discover that her Matthew is the same Matthew that married her daughter Charlotte eighteen years later.

    An amazing and profound novel that you can't really describe and one that should be at the top of your To be Read Lists and if you are anything like me then your lists go on and on and on .....

    I have loved Richard Paul Evans' books for years. I will never purchase another if this is the direction in which he is going with his stories. It has no Christian moral value, is insipid and has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas--Christmas as Christian. I think I will throw it away.
