The Promise – Teresa Driscoll


I received this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.
Back in a private religious boarding school, teenagers, best friends & roommates Beth, Sally & Carol are unwitting accomplices in a death. Not knowing what else to do, they cover it up as best they can, and promise to never say another word to anyone about the events of that fateful night.

Years later, each have their own lives – Beth is happily married with two children, and she remains close with Sally, who is having relationship struggles of her own. Carol, however, for reasons unknown, has distanced herself from the group, partially due to her relationship with a world traveling businessman. And then the girls receive letters that their old boarding school is going to be sold and demolished – with the real potential of exposing a secret many years old.

As the girls search for Carol, in a desperate attempt to ensure that the promise isn’t broken, they also endeavor to protect the events of that night at all costs. As Carol is located and brought unwillingly into the fold with secrets of her own, strange things start to happen. Beth receives warnings in her email and via Facebook, and her husband is badly injured by a hit and run driver. But no one else knew of the long ago events of that night…or did they??

Told in past and present glimpses into the lives of these three women, their story gradually comes to light and just when you think you understand the events of that long ago night….another curveball or three are tossed in that have you frantically turning the pages to get to the very last page! This one kept me up well into the night. A great read from Teresa Driscoll!!
