Jonathan made Dan a promise – a promise that will affect the remainder of his life. But what does he have left to live for?
When their grandson Parker and his fiancé Cody move in with him, the three of them embark on a journey to shed light on Dan’s roots.
A heart-warming sequel to Jonathan’s Hope, Jonathan’s Promise deals with aging and the ultimate consequences of wedding vows. Are we entitled to a second shot at happiness? When is ‘for worse’ too much to handle?
I didn’t like this story as much as the first and I think it’s because I didn’t like one of the central characters, Marc. I was a little blindsided by Marc and Jonathan, though there’s not really a reason I should have been with how the first book ended. I think because the first was so perfect with Dan and Jonathan that I wanted something different for Jonathan. I didn’t really connect with Marc because there just wasn’t as much of him in the story to help me like him.
I loved Cody and Parker together. These two are so in love it’s beautiful to see. I wasn’t a fan of how Cody reacted after the accident or Jonathan going along with it. I felt everyone should have been more open and honest with each other instead of acting rashly. I liked how their story ended though. It’s a beautiful happy ending and you can tell these two are going to make it through the hard times and be happy no matter what life throws in their path.
The very last scene with Jonathan was perfect. That’s exactly what I was looking for at the start of this story. The best ending for him and absolutely wonderful.

I’m an author. I write books. I write about things that are important to me: family, parenting, children, our environment, our world. Contemporary, fresh fiction with happy endings. It’s what I like to read myself. I write because I don’t have a choice. There are so many stories in my head, constantly forming, constantly trying to get out. Feel free to have a look on the other pages to learn more, listen to me narrate from those stories, and – if you like what you see or hear – follow the links to buy the books. I’d greatly appreciate that, as this is how I try to make my living.
I’m an author. But I’m also a forty something male who clings to the illusion of still being twenty-seven, despite my body’s daily reminders to the contrary. I’m married to the most amazing man, and together we have a beautiful son, Sascha. I consider myself a citizen of the world, having lived on two continents and traveled extensively through another three. I have friends all over the world. When I’m not writing, I like to do public speaking or training (where I have my professional background) to actually earn some real bill-paying money. Not sure this author thing is ever going to get me there…
