Review of "The Promise"

Review of The Promise

The secrets to changing Hannah's past, lie in her future. 

The terror of being captured by her enemy throws Hannah into the distant future. But it is a future that holds secrets. 

As the closely guarded secrets unravel, so does the mystery of Hannah's life. Now her entire existence hinges on her actions. 

With time on her own life running out, Hannah is driven by an obsession to travel back in time to save her husband and family, righting the wrongs fro her mistakes. But in order to so do, she must control her time traveling and then somehow save a dead man. 

Hannah must face life-altering secrets, heart-breaking betrayal, shocking surprises, and a final encounter with a villain intent on destroying her. Can she save herself before time traveling takes its final toll? Though Hannah believes God has a plan for her life, can she trust that the author of time can also use her sin for her ultimate good? And in the end, can she finally leave time in His hands, even if it doesn't include her happily ever after? 

'The Promise' is book 6 in the 'Yesterday' series. While each book tells its distinct part in the story, readers should start with book 1, 'Yesterday,' in order to fully appreciate Hannah's journey. 

YESTERDAY, Book 1 
THE LOCKET, Book 2 
TODAY, Book 3 
THE CHOICE, Book 4 
TOMORROW, Book 5 
THE PROMISE, Book 6

MY REVIEW:  If you like suspense, action, romance, and excitement all together in a book, this book and series is one you will likely love.   Time travel is fascinating to me and Amanda Tru has done her homework in this series.   The Promise concludes the story for Hannah and Seth and their family but there is always a new story to tell based on this one, so I am eagerly anticipating the appearance of a new series.  While time travel is still impossible for us, it is fun to imagine what it would be like to time travel like Hannah does.  Christian principles are woven through out the book and did cause me to wonder about whether we would be "playing God" if we could time travel and alter events, such as life and death.  What do you think?  Read the book to see how the characters resolve these ethical issues.   I rate this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers. 
I received a kindle version of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
