Jane Green’s newest book is the story of families, friendship, and discovering the life you want to live. Callie and Steffi are sisters. Callie is living a dream life in the suburbs and has a wonderful husband, family and career. On the other hand, sister Steffi has never settled down although she has discovered a passion for working as a chef. Other characters include Lila, who is struggling to create a new life after being downsized, and the sister’s divorced parents who are each lonely but too stubborn to reconnect.
I have thoroughly enjoyed Jane Green’s recent books. She seems to have rediscovered her passion for writing and the outcome is a story with depth, good character development and a strong sense of place. Promises to Keep is a great summer read. ~~Enjoy~~
