The Promise (Isabel's Story, Book 1)
Author: Michelle Vernal
Format: Kindle Edition
From the author of The Traveller’s Daughter comes an emotional new tale of two women, a secret and a quest for the truth.
Her sister-in-law vanished over sixty years ago but now she’s got something to say...
Ginny’s been gone from the Isle of Wight off England's coast for longer than most people there remember but Constance hasn’t forgotten her. Nor has she forgotten the lies she told in order to take the most precious thing in the world from her.
When, Isabel, a young woman obsessed with keeping the promise she made to a dying stranger, arrives on the island as part of her quest she meets Constance. The two women aren’t just from different generations, they’re polar opposites. One’s a lost soul unsure where she fits in the world while the other’s cantankerous and living in a care home.
Together, the two women form an unlikely bond based on a mutual need for friendship, but if Isabel keeps her promise, will the opening up of Constance’s old wounds break those bonds? Or, will she help an old woman heal and finally find a place she can call home?
Isabel’s story continues in the standalone sequel, The Dancer
