I really liked the idea of Where Promises Die from reading the blurb alone and I was really pleased when I was offered the book to review.
The book spans over nearly a decade from when Grace arrives at the Duncan as a traumatized 11 year old after the violent death of her mother. She forms a pretty much immediate bond with twin Eisav and they become best friends and more.
The story is written in a 3rd person PoV but for once, I think I would have liked to have it as a 1st person alternating one switching from Eisav to Grace. For the life of me I cannot tell you why, but maybe it is a book packed full of emotions.
There is so much pain, love, hate, hope, fear and I could not help myself feeling it all as I was reading. Based on the title, my fear was that it was going to end in a sad way but spoiler alert it does not TG!
The characters were all fantastic, from the hateful parents, to the sisters (who are lovely) and even Jacob (Eisav’s twin who also has a thing for Grace). I got to love them (the sisters), hate them (the parents) and pretty much wanted to kick Jacob’s ass quite a few times… (yes I can be violent at times)
But how could I resist Eisav and Grace, together and separate?
I could not, It was clear from the get go, those two were meant to be together and yes mistakes happened. That is life right?
But when you are destined to be together no matter what happens, well things right themselves in the end.
I went on an emotional roller coaster with Where Promises Die and I do not regret one single moment of it. For this reason, I am going to highly recommend it and I hope you will fall in love with Grace and Eisav as I did!
