New York Times bestselling author Jane Green presents a compelling novel about the love that keeps us together when everything is falling apart. A successful photographer living in Bedford, New York, Callie Perry adores the settled existence she shares with her handsome husband and two adorable children. But while Callie's life is practically perfect, her nearest and dearest are having a harder time. Her best friend Lila is stuck dealing with her dream man's demanding ex-wife. Her free-spirited sister Steffi is adjusting after leaving her city life for the simplicity of the country. And her divorced parents, Walter and Honor, can barely stand each other. But when Callie is diagnosed with a recurrence of the cancer she thought she had beaten, everything changes. With their own problems suddenly in perspective, Callie's family and friends rally to support her during an unforgettable, emotional—and ultimately life-changing year.

Such a beautiful story. Although terribly sad at times, they came together to support each other through a terrible family crisis.

Loved it from beginning to the end.

I couldn't put it down. Relationships are what life is about.

This book and Love is a Verb are the same book.

I loved reading Love is a Verb and sit down to read this book...Promises to Keep and thought O'no this is the same book I just finished.

Love Jane Green's books and am on a quest to read all of them

A touching novel filled with wonderful characters. Shows the importance of family and friends coming together when facing hard times. Have a tissue box handy!

I enjoyed this book a lot, but it was extremely heartfelt and depressing. I try not to think of sickness and death but this book makes you cherish what you have and life itself.

This book is a genuine tear jerker.
My only complaint - I found some of the characters were a bit one dimensional - does the literary world really need one more quirky, sarcastic Jewish best friend character?
Still, the relationships had resonance, and the storyline was heartbreaking. I couldn't put it down!
