Promises Kept

I have a wonderful author and book to share with everyone this week!  Author Cindy Bradford has released her second book, Promises Kept

 (From Cindy) One cool, crisp morning in Ruidoso, New Mexico, I awoke from a crazy dream, I decided to turn it into a novel. And thus began my literary journey.

I guess all writers start out by drawing from the places they know, hence the setting of part of the book (Keeping Faith, her first novel) in East Texas, where I was born and spent the first nineteen years of my life as the daughter of a school teacher/ mother and school teacher/coach/ father. It was an easy place to grow up, but I couldn’t wait to leave. And leave I did as soon as I graduated from Kilgore College with my associates degree and headed to Baylor University where I earned my B.A. in English and journalism. Vowing to never teach, I spent a very short time in a public relations office and soon knew that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I enrolled at the University of North Texas to work toward a master’s degree, applied for a teaching job near Dallas and ended up staying there for almost twenty five years. In the meantime, I received my Ph.D. from UNT which opened up doors that might otherwise have slammed closed.

Tomorrow, I will share more on Ms. Bradford and on Wednesday I share my thoughts on 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 focuses on bringing down the priest who abused her father as a child. She wants the cleric put behind bars long enough that no other boy will ever have to fear his touch. She takes on a shrewd Boston lawyer who underestimates 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. Her fighting instincts are called on like never before. Only this time her intelligence, perseverance and resolve may not be enough.

Hi Joyce,
I posted a comment this morning and even saw it, but it appears to have flown into cyberspace!! Weird. But I just wanted you to know that I appreciate your hosting me, and I look forward to reading your review. I'm very sensitive, and might do something terrible if you are too hard on me. Just kidding. I have a very warped sense of humor!!!Again, thanks.
