Description

Disabled in a car crash at age five, Mattie Renfro grows up in Bleeker House-a dreary and often dangerous home for indigent and disabled women. Her life, already miserable, takes a turn for the worse when she is hurt at Bleeker in a suspicious accident. Recovering in the hospital, but in a severe state of depression, Mattie receives an unexpected visit from a dear friend's lawyer. Unprepared for what she learns, Mattie is heartbroken but at the same time filled with a renewed purpose to follow her lifelong dream-walking again. When the finest doctors in the world claim medical science is helpless against her condition, Mattie and Jack, an ex-soldier and her new companion, turn to the past for answers. A jewel exists with legendary healing powers. Unfortunately, the stone is impossible to access: it's part of the Royal Crown Jewel collection in the Tower of London. Mattie and Jack make a daring attempt to steal the gem from one of the most secure and heavily guarded locations in the world. Succeed or fail, there will be consequences. How much is Mattie willing to sacrifice for her independence and the chance to walk again? "The Promise from Forever" blends romance, loyalty, and high-stakes jewel theft into a thrilling read that pits Mattie against the power of the British police-and her own conscience.show more
