The only promise Jesse Woods ever broke…

jesseChris Fabry pens an intriguing story about three unlikely kids who form a bond of friendship one summer leading Jesse to make a promise that would become the only promise she would ever break.

Matt Plumley, a.k.a PK (preacher’s kid), Dickie Darrel Lee Hancock and Jesse Woods become fast friends as they take care of each other and their secrets.  Matt’s parents aren’t exactly thrilled with his choice of friends and try to keep them apart which leads to secrets that could get them all into trouble.

Matt keeps Jesse’s biggest secret which eventually mysteriously severs their relationship.  Years later, Matt finds out that Jesse’s getting married and has to return to find out why she broke her promise and why she would marry a man who was so mean to them in school.

If Matt discovers the real truth behind the events of that night so long ago will he be able to forgive and move on?  Can he stop Jesse from making a mistake?

Fabry is a brilliant story-teller.  He will keep you reading and guessing until the very end.  I quickly fell in love with the three friends and felt the heart-rending pain of the betrayal Matt felt.  Fabry ties up the story quite nicely, but left me wanting to know more about the future of the people of Dogwood.
