The Promise – Novel

The Promise is a domestic suspense novel exploring themes of coercive control, first love, family secrets, and obsession.

Anna promised to love her childhood sweetheart Sam no matter what. She also promised to never leave her husband James. Breaking either promise is unthinkable, but only one could be deadly. 

Anna may look like she has the perfect life in Oxford with her successful husband James, but all she really wants is to escape her toxic marriage and start a new life with her childhood sweetheart, Sam. So when Sam calls things off and disappears, Anna fears her husband is behind it.

If she wants to find Sam and uncover the truth, Anna must face the life she ran away from 12-years ago, and risk everything and everyone she loves before it’s too late.
