Heart's PromiseHeart's Promise by Jeanette Hornby
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I won this book though the Goodreads giveaway. Thank you!

I'd rate this 2 and 3/4 stars.

This is the story of six years in the life of Millie Garcia.

There were some things I didn't really like about the way this novel was written, but with some additional editing I think it could be even better.

I didn't like the way that Millie's thought were continuously written as if she was speaking them. I found it very distracting. I also felt it was a little disjointed when jumping periods of time. Millie's paranormal experiences didn't seem to add to the story at all.
And lastly, reference points to some national and world events were made, but they didn't seem to have any relevance to the story.

I would have liked to get a bit more into Millie's head. To find out how she felt about some of the big things happening around her. I would have also liked to know a bit more about what happened during those gaps in time and to have delved a little deeper into how Millie dealt with Patty's death and it's effect on her life.

I think Jeanette Hornby shows a lot of promise as an author and I hope she keeps writing.
