WE ALL ARE SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS AND WE ALL HOPE THAT THE POWER OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT WILL LEAD US TO THOSE ANSWERS. This book is about a search that seeks the answers to questions that have plagued many in recent years!
About Promises Kept
Promises Kept is Faith’s story, an unforgettable young woman whose life’s journey has been filled with uncertainty, of searching for people and answers that others take for granted. Compassionate and courageous, she never gives up, showing strength and character beyond her years. It is also the story about the power of the human spirit, of family, friends and love.
After finding the father she never knew until adulthood, and graduating law school, Faith is focused on bringing down the priest who abused her father as a child. She wants the cunning, deceitful cleric put behind bars long enough that no other young boy will ever have to fear his touch. She takes on a veteran, highly experienced and shrewd Boston lawyer. He underestimates her passion for justice, her fight for right against a wrong.
The story transforms from the legal battle on behalf of her father into a beautiful love story as she falls madly in love with her colleague, Tyler England. Soon, her fighting instincts are called on like never before. Only this time her intelligence, perseverance and resolve may not be enough.
