One of Danielle Steel's shorter stories. It had a darker tone than most of her stories, and the ending felt extremely rushed. Not a must-read, but with a more interesting plot than a lot of her more recent novels.
Excellent reading..very good book
This story is a about a promise two lovers make when they are young. Then a tragic accident occurs. Lies are told; they believe them b/c they have no reason not to. The begin separate lives, yet their hearts never forget the magic, the love they felt. Their lives always seem empty; one yearning for the lost love. The other angry at the lost love. The story will touch your heart.
My very first Danielle Steel book and I reordered it so my daughter could read it and she loved it as well. A must read!
Good, if you like romances.
This has always been my favorite Danielle Steel book. It doesn't have the usual stock storyline and is much shorter than many of her novels. The storyline is heartbreaking but, overall, it is a beautiful love story.
Heart breaking and touching as always.
One of the best, most exquisitely-written books I've ever read!!
Read back in high school when I didnt read!!!!
Early danielle Steel romance
"The Promise" is one of Ms. Steel's best works. A quick read and wonderful for a day at the beach.
Young architect Michael Hillyard and artist Nancy McAllister are determined to get married despite his wealthy mother's disapproval. Then, minutes before their wedding, a terrifying accident and a cruel deception separate Michael and Nancy -- perhaps forever. Each pursues a new life -- Nancy in California, Michael in New York. But eventually nothing -- and no one -- can keep them apart as they keep their vow never to say good-bye.
