Promises to Keep: A Novel (Unabridged) - Jane Green
First of all, the description of the book above is incorrect. The book takes place in NY (not Maine) and there is no shocking note that brings everyone together for one summer. There is nothing at all like that in this book.
This is what the book is about- Family, love, illness, loss, sisterhood, friendship, family and grief.
This is a guy-wrenching book and I cried almost the whole way through. If you have a sister, you will cry too. It is a good book but I would have liked to know that it was going to be so incredibly sad. It was emotionally exhausting and I found myself sad even when I wasn't listening to this book.
Jane Green is great but just know I warned you . . .
