PROMISES by E.G. Lewis was certainly not what I was expecting, and in this case that is a good thing! Rather than a fluffy romance, I got a well written novel with substance. Sure, there was romance, but this book is so much more than that. It is the epic journey of a woman who rises above the trials of life to become the person she was meant to be all along. It starts when Mary Jane is just 15, on the eve of her mother’s funeral. From there it takes us through her struggles at home and at college, first love, more tragedy, success, fame, fortune, betrayal, revenge … pretty much the whole gamut of human emotion! At first glance, this list almost sounds trite, but Lewis’s writing is so provocative, so descriptive, so in tune with the human psyche, that this book is anything but cliché. He draws us into MJ’s world with such craft and precision that before you know it you just have to keep reading. PROMISES turned out to be a very satisfying read, indeed. I highly recommend it.
