“When a promise kept means a life is broken …”
This week’s giveaway is from Australian fiction author Pamela Cook – writer of Black Wattle Lake, Essie’s Way, Close to Home and The Crossroads. We interviewed her recently in episode 315 of our podcast, and her latest novel is Cross My Heart – a haunting story of guilt, redemption and friendship set in the beautiful central west of New South Wales.
Tessa De Santis’s child-free marriage in inner-city Sydney is ordered and comfortable, and she likes it that way. But when tragedy strikes and her childhood friend Skye Whittaker dies, Tess is bound to honour a promise to become foster-mother to Skye’s ten-year-old daughter, Grace, throwing her life upside down.
Leaving her husband and work-driven life behind, Tess travels to an isolated property where the realities of her friend’s life – and death – hit hard. The idyllic landscape and an unexpected form of therapy ease her fears, and her relationship with Grace begins to blossom.
But a secret from her earlier life with Skye refuses to remain hidden, and Tess is forced into a decision that will either right the wrongs of the past, or completely destroy her future…
Duh duh duhhhhhnnnn. We have three copies to give away for this one – and to win one we’d like you to tell us who YOUR childhood best friend was and WHY you connected with them. (in 50 words or fewer please!) Our favourite three answers will indeed WIN a copy of this book!
Entries close midday Monday 10 February, Sydney/Melbourne time.
