I enjoyed the book very much. You could tell that it was definetly one of the first books written by Nora Roberts but her great style and way with words already was very apparent in this book. I know that Nora has not encourage people to read this book but I think it was worth the read. The book also completed my collection of Nora Roberts books.

Promise Me Tomorrow is, without doubt, the only bad thing Nora Roberts has ever written. It is, however, essential for completing a Nora collection, which is why I don't regret paying over $100 for a copy in fair condition. There is a reason that Nora has said that this book is so bad that she will never allow it to be re-released. The characters are superficial in both senses - they are heartless and they are poorly fleshed out. Usually Nora is able to draw the reader into the story by offering characters that are instantly likeable and identifiable. You can see part of yourself in the protagonist. Not so here. All the lead characters are selfish, vain sex fiends. The only thing that identifies this as a work of the celebrated New York Times best-selling author is her name on the cover. But, that alone is worth the price.
While Promise Me Tommorow is a departure from her norm, but still a wonderfully well written book. I wouldn't have missed it for the world, and for those of you who get the chance, grab this baby! Nora swears she won't let it be reprinted, so if ever you see this book, snatch it right up!!
