Follows the love story of MaryAnne and David Parkin as they struggle with the lessons of love, loyalty, and forgiveness and cope with tragedy, in a story about the gifts we pass on to our children and grandchildren.

This is a poignant story about true friendship. It's also about loss--so much loss.

I did guess a major plot point in the story before it was revealed by the author.

One life lesson given was that even though we see a stream as the same, it's different water that's going by each time we see it. Sometimes life is like that--people and things drift in and out of our lives at different times.

I know there was another lesson that I meant to hold on to from listening to this memory, but I can't recall it just now.… (més)

Promise Me by Richard Paul Evans is very different than many Mr. Evans' books. It's still an excellent book, but it is not his "usual" fare.

I've been a fan of Mr. Evans since shortly after The Christmas Box came out and an even bigger fan after I met him at a book signing for Finding Noel and was impressed by how awesome he is with his fans. :)

Mr. Evans did warn his newsletter subscribers that there was going to be a twist to this book that may throw off some readers. I was not as thrown with the plot twist as my mom and some other fans because I actually enjoy books with that sort of plot twist and I'm used to reading about them.

That being said, Promise Me is still filled with the well-rounded, fleshed-out characters that we've come to expect from Mr. Evans. They're still facing the life-changing events and learning to trust, love, and live again like many of his stories. There are still important reminders within the story such as how the seemingly small changes in our lives can have the biggest impact.

I would've preferred that the story to go a bit beyond where it ended. It would've given readers a chance to see how the characters handled things once everything was back to normal, it was still a beautiful Christmas story.

I've recommended it highly to many of my friends, though I do make sure to tell them that it is a bit different from his previous works. You just have to stretch your mind and open it up to new possibilities. So, are you willing to suspend your disbelief? If you are, buy it, read it, love it! :)

Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 is the first in a new teen/YA series by acclaimed author, Richard Paul Evans. The book is not typical of what you find in teen literature today. It is not full of horror and darkness. There are villains certainly and villains that you would love to hate, but it has an underlying feeling of hope and inspiration.

There are many reasons to love this book. Number one, the underlying feeling of hope. The main characters are conflicted to be sure, but the book helps show that one can make the right choices in the face of adversity without being "preachy" about it.

Number two, the protagonist, Michael Vey, has Tourette's Syndrome. It's rare to find a book where the protagonist is dealing with some sort of syndrome and dealing with it successfully. I think that can be inspirational to those teens who are dealing with things themselves. It's not hidden away in a dark corner. It's shown as something that Michael has to deal with and yet it's not the sole focus of the story.

Number three, the book is full of mystery and intrigue and adventure. It grabs your attention and doesn't let go until the end. I read the majority of it while I was standing in line at the Henry Ford Museum waiting to see the original Emancipation Proclamation (it was a 4 1/2 hour wait - totally worth it). There were plenty of conversations going on around me between strangers and friends alike, but this book held my attention so well that I never really noticed them! It was that good.

The official release date isn't for another two weeks, but the book can be pre-ordered now from Amazon and Barnes&Noble. If there's a teen in your life who enjoys science-fiction and adventure, this book is for them! Terrific book and I highly recommend it!
