A Soldier’s Promise
by Cheryl Wyatt
"My name's Bradley. I'm eight and have cancer. I want to meet a Special Forces soldier more than anything. Well, almost anything. Having a family would be nice."
U.S. Air Force pararescue jumper Joel Montgomery promised to make a sick child's wish come true. Well, not the family part—not with Joel's past. And so despite vowing never to set foot back in Refuge, Illinois, Joel parachuted onto the boy's school lawn to a huge smile. But another smile unexpectedly stole Joel's heart: that of Bradley's beautiful teacher, Amber Stanton, who was trying to adopt the boy. And trying to show Joel it was time for new vows.
Cheryl Wyatt’s debut novel is a dynamic story of love, faith, forgiveness and courage. She tackles the hurt of betrayal and abandonment with depth and intensity.
Amber has past hurts and deep scars. Her tender heart is always taking care of those around her. I found I liked her spunk, her humor and her ability to laugh at herself. Although her soft heart loved easily, it was easy to understand her fear and hesitancy to trust again.
Now, Joel. There is a man you can easily fall in love with. He is strong in character and strength. He lives his creed and takes his vows and commitments seriously, even when that means finding the courage to face his darkest memories. A tough, yet sensitive soldier. What’s not to love?
These characters were so much fun to watch. Bradley is so adorable and will just steal your heart with his courage, strength and determination to hope against all odds. This story will make you blush, cringe, love and laugh out loud. I recommend this story to anyone who wants to find a little bit of love, laughter and faith.
