Product description

Life as Kim and Krickitt Carpenter knew it was shattered beyond recognition on November 24, 1993. Two months after their marriage, a devastating car wreck left Krickitt with a massive head injury and in a coma for weeks. When she finally awoke, she had no idea who Kim was. With no recollection of their relationship and while Krickitt experienced personality changes common to those who suffer head injuries, Kim realized the woman he had married essentially died in the accident. And yet, against all odds, but through the common faith in Christ that sustained them, Kim and Krickitt fell in love all over again. Even though Kim stood by Krickitt through the darkest times a husband can ever imagine, he insists, "I'm no hero. I made a vow." Now available in trade paper with a new chapter and photo insert, The Vow is the true story that inspired the major motion picture of the same name starring Rachel McAdams (The Notebook), Channing Tatum (Dear John), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), and Academy Award winner Jessica Lange.

This is a wonderful story especially for anyone who has a family member who have suffered a head injury with life changing results. Also for couples affected in this way, to realise that with a lot of love and hard work, dedication and commitment despite the odds, you can have great results. The book brings across well the frustrations both Kim and Krickett went through and their story is a wonderful testament to what can be worked out to a positive end.

I really enjoyed this book it filled in alot of the gaps in the movie adaptation, I did however enjoy the movie also but once you read the book it does help to consolidate the story and you understand why the husband hung in so long and to have made it like the book it would not have got the audience it did.
