Promises to Keep - Genevieve Graham Summary

An enchanting and poignant story about the unfailing power of love in a world turned upside down by war—from the bestselling author of Tides of Honour. Summer 1755, Acadia Young, beautiful Amélie Belliveau lives with her family among the Acadians of Grande Pré, Nova Scotia, content with her life on their idyllic farm. Along with their friends, the neighbouring Mi’kmaq, the community believes they can remain on neutral political ground despite the rising tides of war. But peace can be fragile, and sometimes faith is not enough. When the Acadians refuse to pledge allegiance to the British in their war against the French, the army invades Grande Pré, claims the land, and rips the people from their homes. Amélie’s entire family, alongside the other Acadians, is exiled to ports unknown aboard dilapidated ships. Fortunately, Amélie has made a powerful ally. Having survived his own harrowing experience at the hands of the English, Corporal Connor MacDonnell is a reluctant participant in the British plan to expel the Acadians from their homeland. His sympathy for Amélie gradually evolves into a profound love, and he resolves to help her and her family in any way he can—even if it means treason. As the last warmth of summer fades, more ships arrive to ferry the Acadians away, and Connor is forced to make a decision that will alter the future forever. Heart-wrenching and captivating, Promises to Keep is a gloriously romantic tale of a young couple forced to risk everything amidst the uncertainties of war.

Promises to Keep - William W. Fisher, III Summary

During the past fifteen years, changes in technology have generated an extraordinary array of new ways in which music and movies can be produced and distributed. Both the creators and the consumers of entertainment products stand to benefit enormously from the new systems. Sadly, we have failed thus far to avail ourselves of these opportunities. Instead, much energy has been devoted to interpreting or changing legal rules in hopes of defending older business models against the threats posed by the new technologies. These efforts to plug the multiplying holes in the legal dikes are failing and the entertainment industry has fallen into crisis. This provocative book chronicles how we got into this mess and presents three alternative proposals--each involving a combination of legal reforms and new business models--for how we could get out of it.

Promises to Keep - Joe Biden Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the author of Promise Me, Dad, tells the story of his extraordinary life and career prior to his emergence as Barack Obama’s beloved, influential vice president. “I remain captivated by the possibilities of politics and public service. In fact, I believe that my chosen profession is a noble calling.”—Joe Biden Vice President Joe Biden has both witnessed and participated in a momentous epoch of American history. In Promises to Keep, Joe Biden reveals what these experiences taught him about himself, his colleagues, and the institutions of government. With his customary candor and wit, Biden movingly recounts growing up in a staunchly Catholic multigenerational household in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware; overcoming personal tragedy, life-threatening illness, and career setbacks; his relationships with presidents, with world leaders, and with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle; and his leadership of powerful Senate committees. Through these and other recollections, Biden shows us how the guiding principles he learned early in life—to work to make people’s lives better; to honor family and faith; to value persistence, candor, and honesty—are the foundation on which he has based his life’s work as husband, father, and public servant. Promises to Keep is an intimate series of reflections from a public servant who surmounted numerous challenges to become one of our most effective leaders and who refuses to be cynical about politics. It is also a stirring testament to the promise of the United States. Praise for Promises to Keep “A ripping good read . . . Biden is a master storyteller and has stories worth telling.”—The Christian Science Monitor “A compelling personal story.”—The New York Times “Moving . . . [Biden’s] response to tragedy and near death [is] both admirable and likable.”—Salon

A Promise to Keep - Gayle Stephens Summary

Beth lost both her dear parents that night, both had died on impact. She knew that one could not live without the other, so it was fitting that they should both perish together. With Beth closer and closer to death herself, still pinned in the car; she was trapped between the wreckage from the front passenger seat and the rear passenger seat where she had been sitting when the unexpected impact took place. She had been unconscious the entire time and was unaware that the rescue crew was required to use their Jaws of Life to successfully remove her from the twisted and tangled debris. Once removed from the vehicle Beth been had pronounced dead, but was successfully revived, she was told later the medics had to shock her heart back into rhythm more than once; she had died twice before reaching the hospital. She had no memory of seeing heaven or the white light so many talked about during their life after death experience. But something still hung in the back of her mind, a man’s face, she couldn't see him clearly but she could feel his presence. Maybe it had just been the medic’s faces hovering over her while trying to revive her; she really didn't want to think any more about it, it was too painful. A soft and gentle kiss awoke her; she turned as though to snuggle in closer to his embrace. Stretching her arm across the bed to find the other side empty Beth awoke with a bead of sweat covering her brow…the same dream and feeling of loss had been assaulting her nights and effecting her days for weeks now. She could never see his face entirely, just glimpses of his supple lips and dark as midnight hair. How was he connected to her future or was it the past?

A Promise To Keep My Angel - Kate Austin Summary

People recognize post-partum blues as an expected element after giving birth. These anxious feelings are usually associated with hormonal changes and the slow adaptation to change. Unbeknownst to many, even adoptive parents experience the same things too, but are faced with even more difficulty, because of this unfamiliar occurrence that was, and is, not widely taught to soon-to-be adoptive parents. This is commonly called the Post-Adoption Depression Syndrome, (PADS). And this is the nightmare that changed my life forever. Before this, I had everything a woman could possibly wish for in her life. Due to suffering from PADS for the first time. I lost everything, including the most precious gift of all, my beautiful little Angel, Adam. I have spent years fighting Social Services, the Justice system and husband, with an unbelievably devastating outcome through lies, deceit, cover up, discrimination, and lack of understanding. I made a Promise to my son that I would never leave him and would always be there for him. Adam's fears came true as he had his mummy taken away from him for no known reason other than jealousy of the special and loving bond we shared, and resentment of my illness by his father. I will never give up fighting to have us reunited and to keep the Promise I made to him.
