Promise Me by Richard Paul Evans

If you could make a difference in someone’s life, would you do anything possible to achieve that?

After a rough two years in which her husband had been caught cheating and then died of cancer, and her daughter Charlotte was battling a unknown disease, Beth Cardall was ready for life to look a little brighter. When a handsome stranger she encounters at the neighborhood 7-11 on Christmas Day tells her to have the doctors check her daughter for celiac disease and he turns out to be right, Beth wonders how this man seemed to know so much about her and her family. Soon her wariness turns to trust, and she finds herself falling in love with personable and genuinely nice Matthew, but there is always something nagging at the back of her mind that makes her wonder if he is too good to be true.

For Matthew courting Beth was easy – the young widow was beautiful and loving, and her young daughter just the same. But Matthew has other reasons for wanting to watch out for the Cardell women, but it’s a secret he must keep to himself or risk breaking their hearts and his. But one fateful day the truth comes out, and Matthew and Beth’s relationship will be sorely tested and only faith, trust and love will see them through the rocky crisis.

Well-known for his holiday-inspired books “The Christmas Box,” “Finding Noel,” “Grace,” and “The Gift,” Richard Paul Evans is the rare author whose work continuously can be counted on to be heartwarming, touching and full of Christmas joy, and “Promise Me” is no exception. Evan’s gift for storytelling will keep the reader enthralled to the very surprising end of this charming tale that contains unexpected twists and turns throughout.

“Promise Me” will certainly join the ranks of the rest of Evan’s bestselling tomes as some of the best holiday reading to be found.
