Flynn O’Neill and Jaynie Cumberland thought life outside the foster care system would be a breeze. Now eighteen and sharing a home in the quaint, little town of Lawrence, West Virginia, their new start should be nothing short of idyllic.
Unfortunately, it is not.
Flynn and Jaynie are discovering that picking up the pieces of their shattered lives and moving forward is far from easy, particularly when the past keeps rearing its ugly head. And then, as if things weren’t tough enough, they are told the evil Allison Lowry, their former foster sister, may be released from prison early.
Committed to not allowing that to happen, Flynn and Jaynie begin to search for ways to keep their former tormentor behind bars. In doing so, dark secrets are uncovered. But instead of setting this young couple back, these new developments allow Jaynie and Flynn to grow closer than ever. As their commitment to one another deepens, these two broken people find new purpose and, more importantly, realize the healing they so deeply desire is finally within reach.
Today’s Promises is the beautiful, stirring conclusion to Flynn and Jaynie’s journey that first began in Tomorrow’s Lies.
Again, so much to tell you about these characters but I will say that I couldn’t believe half of what I read and it was an inspiring story of courage, love, and overcoming devastating circumstances! Ms. Grey really piled on the shocking aspect of her books and that made this book so much better than I could have even thought possible! Jaynie is a character you can only hope gets better and to say that she goes back and forth with her emotions threw in a very real aspect of her character. Flynn didn’t have to always be the strong character he was and save everyone because he could lean on Jaynie for support. They both had someone they didn’t think was possible to be a helping hand for them in their time of need because he could have turned on them and I truly thought he would turn on them because almost everyone did.
I am completely honored to have been able to read this book because Ms. Grey wrote an epic book here! Congrats on such an inspiring story!
