Received an advanced reader’s copy from Net Galley for an honest review:
It appears that most of the writers I have chosen to read lately have a compelling true story to tell. Unfortunately, it pains me to say, most deal with horrible atrocities against people who need protection and these atrocities eradicated from society. However, it appears some atrocities such as pedophile, incest rape, child sexual abuse, and child abuse, have serious and long-term psychological trauma on the victim and is never really spoken about or treated. Jessica gives us insight into the emotional consequences of one of her characters. It may be a difficult read for someone who has encountered child abuse in their lives. Although, well written with emotional caring the story hit me with a stick, it poked me, inspired me to want to do more for those who have suffered at the hands of others, could just be all my Psychology classes talking. Forgotten Promises is not your typical love story with a happy ending but more of a real-life story in progress.
Overall rating is 5 stars!
