Praise For A Mother's Promise

 I found the story heart-gripping and heartwarming at the same time while I was reading.  In fact, I read this novel in one sitting as it was that good.  I wanted to see how the author was going to bring about the solutions to the dilemmas and challenges the various characters faced.  The story, while fictional, has some familiarity in my personal experiences so it was all the more engaging.  I believe all who read this will be able to relate to the tale being told.  Read and enjoy!
