"Very well done time travel"

In Colorado's San Juan Mountains, Cara Reynolds had just remarked to her parents how her sixteenth birthday celebration was the best day of her life when the car crash occurred. Michael MacPherson finds the injured Cara and takes her inside a mine tunnel so she could warm up. By morning, Michael is gone and her grandfather is there with help. Her parents are dead.

Years later, Michael is shot and goes to the same haven he took and lost Cara. She finds him and takes him to her nearby cabin where she provides him medicine for his wounds. As the twosome fall in love they realize that he is from the late nineteenth century and she is from the late twentieth century. Cara concludes that she has a mission to correct the misdeeds of the past. However, to succeed she must learn how to use her sixteenth birthday silver heirloom present to open the quantum entrance to the mine.

THE PROMISE is a wild seesawing ride between centuries that initially will bewilder the reader with its switching between the present and the past. However, this reviewer promises that if given the chance, the audience will enjoy the journey. The story line is charged with an abundance of action that enables the lead characters to seem real. The support crew provides enough depth along with specific tidbits to insure fans know which century they are in at any moment. Dee Davis furbishes a time travel romance that Quantum Leap off the pages into the hearts of her readers.

In it would begin the weaving of a web of deceit, a murderous tapestry of lies that would mean the deaths of many innocents.

But also in the shadowy mine lay the path to redemption and love. Its labyrinthine tunnels held a magic that could draw a woman one hundred years into the past, into the arms of one who could make her life whole. But crossing time was only the beginning.

To right the wrongs already done, to paint a new future, one brighter and full of love, Cara Reynolds would have to unravel several mysteries. She would have to depend upon the rugged man who emerged from the mine, trust his vow that he would keep her safe and cherish her forever. Then, and only then, would she truly understand the danger-and the power-of...
