It's not the promises we make, it's the ones we keep—witty, heartfelt women's fiction Alice is living the life she always dreamed of: no ties, no constraints, and no worries. An intrepid travel writer, her carefree life is full of spa days, dinner parties, and self-indulgence. Virginia, Alice's best friend since college, finally has everything she ever wanted: the loving husband, the beautiful daughter, and the successful career. Life hasn't always been easy, but she knows now that her family can weather any storm and come through it stronger. The two women are unlikely allies, but theirs is a bond that runs deep—so much so that Virginia trusts Alice with all she holds dearest. When tragedy strikes Alice must honor a rash promise she made to her friend. Embarking upon a journey with no guide book, she is forced to reassess her dreams, and soon Alice realizes that the greatest adventures can be the ones you least expect—and that sometimes it's the people you think you know best who hold the most closely guarded secrets.
