The Promises She Keeps by Erin Healy

Promise, a talented young singer with a terminal illness, is counting on fame to keep her memory alive after she dies. Porta is an aging sorceress and art collector in search of immortality.
When Promise inexplicably survives a series of freak accidents, Porta believes that she may hold the key to eternal life.
Enter Chase, an autistic artist who falls in love with Promise and fascinates her with his mysterious visions and drawings.
Soon, all are plunged into a flesh-and-blood confrontation over the mystery and the cost of something even greater than eternal life…eternal love.

I honestly could not wait for this book and was inquiring Thomas Nelson for when bloggers would be able to get it two months in advanced! Yes, I wanted it that bad. After Erin’s first solo novel, Never Let You Go, there was no reason not to get this.
The plot is well crafted and well played out. Every twist caught me by surprise and I never would have guessed how everything panned out.
One of the main reasons why I like Erin’s books so much is because of the dialogue. Many times, I will go back into her books and find a page filled with dialogue. All of it seems so fluent and natural. A great way for writers like me to learn how to write strong conversations for sure.
The description makes everything so vivid without overloading your brain to the point of exploding. There is one scene towards the end of the novel that, I don’t think, could have been described any better.
I recommend that you all read this! It’s a great read with great characters, plot, description and much more!
Another great novel, Erin! You are most definitely very talented! Looking forward to The Baker’s Wife!

I received a free copy of this novel as part of Thomas Nelson’s BookSneeze reviewer program for an honest review. All comments in this review are my own.
