Some pains can be gotten over easily, but others take many years--and often can't be laid to rest until some type of justice has been served. The latter kind are often so deep, we need the help and love of someone else to push us forward into seeking justice. Faith is the person who does this for her dad, who suffered physically years ago, and emotionally ever since. While helping fight for justice for not only her dad, but others who have suffered at the hands of the same villain, Faith must deal with her own demons. Just when all seems to be resolved, life throws another curve ball. Will Faith be strong enough to make it through this time?
Cindy Bradford has written a book that touches on a subject that many pass over -- the sexual abuse of young boys by what should be one of the most trusted people in their lives, the local priest. Her knowledge of the psychological effects that come from this is perfect. Details overlooked by the average author, such as emotional growth being halted, find their way into the story. It is obvious Ms. Bradford did her research thoroughly in the emotions behind not only abuse, but also in the emotions involved in all situations faced within the pages of Promises Kept.
Cindy Bradford doesn't weigh her book down with needless details. She uses dialogue so well, that you can hear the conversations taking place. Every word carries the story along, drawing you into the midst of the events. This is definitely a book that you need to read with a tissue box nearby, you will need them. It isn't all pain, however; it is a book of hope and healing. Promises Kept reminds us that it is never too late for justice to be served -- or for love to be revived. It also reminds us that life isn't always pretty, but often the good can help heal the bad.
Promises Kept is a book that will strike a chord in almost everyone, for its universal themes of love, loss, pain and healing, is something everyone has experienced. We've all experienced the beginnings that needed endings and the endings that bring beginnings.
Promises Kept ears six colors on the Rainbow Scale.
