Publisher's Description

Mallory’s search for happiness leads her to a faraway place. There she finds heartache, betrayal—and danger.

Mallory Hammond is determined that no one will stand in the way of her goal—to save a life. She had that chance years ago, and she failed to take it, leaving her adrift and in search of the real meaning of her life. Finally, she meets a man online from a volatile corner of the world who offers her the chance to find that purpose. But she will have to leave everyone she loves behind in order to take it.

Tate Webber has loved Mallory for many years. He understands that Mallory will never be happy with him until her deepest heart’s desire is satisfied. When Mallory decides to travel across the world to fulfi ll her dreams, Tate begs her not to go but tries to give her the space she needs. 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

    Sixteen year old Mallory's parents refused to give permission for her to donate a kidney to save her cousin's life. Mallory's life goal is to "save a life". When her urologist boss, a Muslim from Pakistan, tells her of his cousin's daughter who has cancer and needs to come to the US for treatment, Mallory wants to help. She skypes with the smooth talking cousin who needs to marry an American in order to bring his daughter to the US.

    Despite the fact that she loves a man in Houston, Mallory goes to Pakistan to marry the cousin and enable his daughter to receive treatment. Once in Pakistan, Mallory learns the daughter does not even have cancer and that Abdul is not the man she thought. Getting back to the United States proves to be very difficult and dangerous.

    The Promise is inspired by actual events. It was a very interesting read and shows what an American woman can experience when they enter a very different culture. I received this book in a giveaway and would recommend it to others.

    Excellent story, couldn't put the book down. The cover and back cover do not really give you suspense, drama, love and meaning behind this book. I am glad that I received this book for review and had to read it... I would not have picked this up in the store to read, due to the description. However, this is a book that is based on a true story and you don't really know that until you read the end wrap up by the author. What an adventure, learning experience and it rips your heart out.

    I started this book and couldn't put it down, we lost the power and I was left in the dark very upset because I wanted to know what was going to happen. Luckily 2 hours later the power came back on and I got out of bed and finished the book. (of course dead the next day due to lack of sleep).

    This story is about a promise that is made to her cousin when they were young to save someone's life. It is about how love, faithfulness and dedication will determine GOD's way for you. Keep faith in GOD and you will know his plan for you, even through the fear and heartache, HE will come through for you.

    Buy this book, be prepared to read in one sitting. Buy for all your friends, they will love it! Best book I have read in a really long time. Keep thinking of this story line and what she went through really happens in today's world. Can't say anything bad, just wish it was a series!! Became attached to the characters, I would love for Beth to write the true story of her friend that this story is based on.

    RIVETING!! Reading this book left me angry with those that make choices without God. This is a compassionately written story concerning a true interaction of events that occurred to a friend of Beth Wiseman. I admire Beths trust in God and bravery to write this story. She is to be congratulated. Without a doubt it would not have been published in a country different from America our home.

    Our protagonist, Mallory Hammond was blinded to the truth that she was making bad choices for herself at the exclusion of what those that loved her felt. At the age of seventeen, she desperately wanted to donate a kidney to her teenage cousin, but did not understand her parents would not allow it out of love and concern for her. Mallory still mourned the death of her cousin and her desire to help someone anyone became obsessive. Now in her thirties, she worked for Dr. Ismail Farim, a Muslim. He was engaged to Soroya, Mallorys best friend also a Muslim who came from a wealthy family in Pakistan. With Dr. Farims help, Mallory enrolled in a kidney exchange program in my thoughts, a sub-conscious rebellious action toward her parents.

    Mallory did not have a good Christian foundation to support her hearts desire of saving a life in proper perspective. She wanted to be known for something even if that something took her around the world under false pretenses. Her boyfriend, Tate Weber, was a Christian with a Catholic background. To my thinking, Mallorys selfishness about her obsession tainted her life as she began to doubt the seriousness of her relationship with Tate a piano teacher who had a chance to take a new job with the Chicago Academy for the Arts.

    GRIPPING !!! Sinister forces began to work in Mallorys life. Dr. Farims father was tyrannical in insisting Ismail find an American wife for his nephew Abdul, whose daughter Majida had cancer and because of several obstacles In Pakistan an American wife would be able to bring the girl to the United States for treatment. Mallory empathized with her boss and began to Skype with Abdul. Mallory was mesmerized into becoming attracted to Abdul and agreed to a marriage in name only and travelled to Peshaway, Pakistan only to be caught up in a disastrous web of deceit a real mess!

    Tate is struggling over his own problems, having a ten year old orphan Verdell dumped on his doorstep and abandoned by his aunt. Life becomes all about survival for Mallory. Realistically, certain references toward human frailties such as sex, and a curse word bothered me however it was necessary to the truth of the story.

    Beth Wiseman did an extraordinary job authoring this entire book. She conveyed the truth of Christian beliefs versus the Muslim law. Clearly, we do not worship the same God. Beth Wiseman has taken a true example of how life can fool us and wrote a blaring example that should be read by many having faith or not. Particularly worthy of note and mind-blowing is the part at the back of the book entitled Group Guide A Letter from the Author. I highly recommend Beth Wisemans The Promise be placed at the top of your reading list. Find out how God proves his promises again and again. Thank you Beth Wiseman for your incredible job with a tough subject.

    Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    When seventeen-year-old Mallory wasnt allowed to donate the kidney that would have saved her cousins life, she made a promise to herself that one day she would do it. She would save a life. Twelve years later, she has another opportunity, but her parents arent going to like this one either, because it involves a trip to Pakistan and a sick teen. And her long-term boyfriend, Tate, isnt happy either.

    I quickly discovered Mallory is my least-favourite kind of fictional heroine: noble, academically bright but nave, with little understanding of life outside her first-world bubble. She shows herself to be easily led--in the wrong direction--as she makes a vital decision based on some basic internet research, and has no idea what shes letting herself in for. I hoped Id be wrong about the way the story would progress, but I wasnt (although it could have been worse. It usually is, based on the stories I used to read in the London newspapers when I lived there).

    However, I really liked Tate. There was a nobility and intelligence about him that Mallory lacked, but he still had two major faults, one being Mallory. My dislike of her aside, Tate is a committed Catholic who attends Mass and believes Jesus is the only way to God. Mallory has no personal faith, and has never read the Bible, yet is happy to start reading the Quranso why is Tate in a relationship with her? The second fault is that he cries. A lot. I guess that as a music teacher shes supposed to be the sensitive new age (?) guy, the metrosexual who is in touch with his feelings. Maybe. But it came across as girly (note: this isnt intended to be a sexist comment. I get equally annoyed by fictional women who cry all the time).

    I can imagine a lot of people are going to rave about this novel. Its based on real-life events the author was personally involved inbut I didn't find that out to the end. Maybe I'd have been able to feel more sympathy for Mallory if I'd known.

    The writing is solid (not spectacular, but solid), its touching on subjects and issues not usually seen in Christian fiction, and it certainly inspired emotion in my as I read. The first half of the book was a real struggle as I kept hoping Mallory would come to her senses (and knowing she wouldnt). The second half was a lot better, with a lot more action and suspense, but overall, I found the novel a frustrating read.

    Thanks to Litfuse Publicity and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
