This is an auction for THE PROMISE by Ann Weisgarber.

“A gripping, beautiful story of loyalties and hidden loves. Ann Weisgarber’s pitch-perfect characters will break your heart.” —Carol Rifka Brunt, New York Times bestselling author of Tell the Wolves I’m Home

“In this superb novel, Ann Weisgarber has created voices so convincing it is as if the dead themselves have arisen to tell their story.” —Ron Rash, New York Times bestselling author of Serena

"Ann Weisgarber's The Promise is set against the backdrop of the worst natural disaster of the 20th century in the US, but the weather is no match for this story of two women's love for the same man. It shows Weisgarber's ability to make a place come alive, and the real storm in the book is the demand of family, the hope of love, and the impossibility of reinvention. Fans of A Reliable Wife will find The Promise to be a book they can latch onto." —Alexi Zentner, author of Touch and The Lobster Kings

“Based on the true story of one of the deadliest storms in American history, The Promise is the work of a skilled storyteller. Weisgarber (The Personal History of Rachel Dupree, 2010) has written a beautiful, deeply engaging story about love, loss, and the power of secrets to change our lives.” —Booklist

“Weisgarber has delivered a second novel of finely drawn characters anchored by historical events. It’s the sort of tale that you find yourself staying up late at night to finish.” —Dallas Morning News

“Excellent use of historical detail and strong character development mark this second novel by Weisgarber, whose 2010 debut, The Personal History of Rachel DuPree, was long-listed for the Orange Prize, and it should attract wide readership.” —Library Journal (US)
