    The Promise” really hits hard. I love the way Claire tackles the subject of Cancer threw out the first part of the book…The one last true act of love & unselfishness from Sarah to Ali so she may move on after she is gone was beautifully written. By the second half of the book you find that you can’t help but feel for Ali and want to see her fine her HEA. The story is very well written and the narrator- Kelsey Navarro does a wonderful job with this book and allowed the story to flow with her words. A definite 5 stars ⭐️

    This is about Ali and Susan Jenkins, a happily married couple who get a tragic diagnosis. It was a realistic take into the end of someone’s life and the thoughts and decisions.

    Susan has Ali make her a Promise, which was an act of love on her part. Ali keeps the letter framed on her wall of her office and looks at it every day. You can feel Ali’s struggle as she tries hard to move on.

    Claire Highton-Stevenson is an excellent author and takes you through an emotional journey. Kelsey Navarro’s narrating is perfect!

    Well worth the listen/read. Just be prepared to have tissues!
