A woman's past and present collide with unexpected results in this hauntingly beautiful debut novel set in rural Vermont. Forty-one-year-old school nurse Kate Cypher has returned home to rural Vermont to care for her mother who's afflicted with Alzheimer's. On the night she arrives, a young girl is murdered--a horrific crime that eerily mirrors another from Kate's childhood. Three decades earlier, her dirt-poor friend Del--shunned and derided by classmates as "Potato Girl"--was brutally slain. Del's killer was never found, while the victim has since achieved immortality in local legends and ghost stories. Now, as this new murder investigation draws Kate irresistibly in, her past and present collide in terrifying, unexpected ways. Because nothing is quite what it seems . . . and the grim specters of her youth are far from forgotten. More than just a murder mystery, Jennifer McMahon's extraordinary debut novel, Promise Not to Tell, is a story of friendship and family, devotion and betrayal--tautly written, deeply insightful, beautifully evocative, and utterly unforgettable.… (més)

Pretty good story. It was sort of confusing the back and forth between then and now, but I finally got the rhythm. ( )

This is the story of Kate Cypher (who is a nurse....like me). She has returned to her childhood home when she gets a call from folks who live near her mother saying her mom is sinking into Alzheimers and can no longer care for herself. Her mother set her house on fire, and so Kate is not faced with the task of putting her mom in a nursing home. On the night she arrives, a little girl is murdered, and it mirrors a murder that happened to one of Kate's friends when she was a child. The killer of Kate's friend, Del, was never found, but now the police are searching for either a copy cat murderer or Del's killer. Kate becomes wrapped up in finding out who killed the little girl figuring it will lead her to Del's killer.



This was a pretty good book. It is a really quick, short book. The story flips back and forth between 1971 - the year Del was killed, and 2002 - the year the other girl is killed. Kate is remembering her friendship with Del and the guilt that she has thinking it was her fault that Del was killed.



I encourage you to read this book - it was well written and wrapped up nicely in the end. Check it out! ( )
