"Heartfelt and emotionally wrenching, A Daughter's Promise is a story of life and love set against a metaphorical journey that rings with optimism against a backdrop of the impossible toll a disease like Alzheimer's on a family. Fran Lewis's beautifully written tale spares not a single word in finding light amid a growing and pervasive darkness, even as it salvages hope from despair. This is Tuesdays with Morrie for a new generation, a brilliant depiction in fact of what Nicholas Sparks does so well in fiction." --Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author
"This memoir of Alzheimer's is unflinching in its honesty. At times, it is so raw that you may want to look away -- but don't, because the pain of this story is outweighed by its courage, devotion, and love." --Brian Freeman, Amazon bestselling author
