Finally, she meets a man online from a volatile corner of the world who offers her the chance to find that purpose. But she will have to leave everyone she loves behind in order to take it.

Press Release

God never wastes an experience

In The Promise Beth Wiseman steps out of her comfort zone, sharing a story close to her heart

Seattle: Most authors draw from life experience when writing a book. However, for best-selling author Beth Wiseman, the inspiration for The Promise(Thomas Nelson/ September 30, 2014/ISBN 978-1401685959 /$15.99) came from encounters most readers could never imagine happening in their own lives. Inspired by actual events, Wiseman describes her latest release as the largest project she has undertaken since her first book was published in 2008. “It was a step way out of the box and a far cry from my Amish novels and Texas contemporaries,” she explains. “Not only was I shifting to another genre and writing a much edgier story, but the real-life events that inspired the novel were still tender on my heart.”

The Promise introduces readers to Mallory Hammond, a young woman who takes a dangerous journey to Pakistan, fueled by her adventurous spirit and her desire to save a life. Instead, promises are broken, her life is put at risk, and all she can do is pray she’ll make it out alive. Mallory’s character was closely modeled after someone close to the author, and Wiseman herself was actively involved with bringing her safely home.

Struggling to find her own faith and at a crossroads in her current relationship, Mallory is searching for purpose in her life. She is determined not to let her boyfriend, parents or anyone else get in the way of her number-one goal: to save a life. Mallory had the chance to save her cousin’s life when she was a teenager, but the opportunity slipped away, leaving a void she’s desperate to fill. She made herself a promise that someday she would reach her goal.

Mallory’s boyfriend, Tate Webber, has loved her for years and understands Mallory’s free spirit has to fly. When he has no choice except to give her the space she needs, he hopes when she lands, the two of them will be in the same place and can marry at last. However, when Mallory meets a new friend online, she is offered the chance to make good on the promise she made long ago. The opportunity means that she’ll have to leave behind everyone she loves to take it.

In a bold move — and with lots of resistance from those closest to her who question her judgment — Mallory decides to travel across the world to fulfill her dream. Tate begs her not to go, but Mallory embarks on the dangerous journey to Pakistan anyway, not realizing the people she trusted have put her in harm’s way. She will soon discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. Mallory must rely on faith and prayer to make it home alive.

The story was close to Wiseman, and she found herself so deep in the story that she often found herself using “real” names and would have to go back and make corrections. Writing the book with the woman she calls “Laurie,” for anonymity, brought the two women closer together and helped Wiseman better understand the reasons Laurie made the decisions she did. “When Laurie left for Pakistan, I wasn’t sure I would ever see her again. When she did return home, she was incredibly broken, both physically and emotionally,” shares Wiseman. “I’d always assumed there would be an opportunity to say, ‘I told you so.’ However, that thought wasn’t at the forefront of my mind as I watched her trying to put her life back together. She’d lost almost everything, but her spirit to survive and push forward shone through, and I wanted to help her with that. God truly does work in such mysterious ways.”

Much like The Promise’s Mallory was driven by her life goal, Wiseman’s goal for years was to write one book to make one difference in a life and hopes the message of this book does just that. “We all make mistakes, have regrets and carry burdens from our past. But by clinging to our faith, we are often gifted with opportunities to use these mistakes in a way that sheds light amidst the darkness, defining who we are and how we will be remembered. In the novel, Mallory wants to save a life. She ends up doing much more and in a way she could have never foreseen. Laurie returned to the United States a broken woman, but she shared her experiences via this novel in an effort to save as many women as possible from falling into a similar situation — an opportunity she also could never have predicted. God never wastes an experience.”

Advance Praise

“Bestselling author Wiseman encourages readers to think through their feelings about Islam, Christianity, faith, love, and what it means to help others. Her novel will challenge, encourage, and stimulate discussion among her loyal fans and first-time readers.” ~ Publishers Weekly

“Takes readers to a place where promises mean something very different than expected, and where her protagonist realizes that the life that needs saving is her own. … Wiseman draws readers into a world of deception, danger, and defiance. Readers will feel the anguish of Mallory’s loved ones as they pray for her to make it home.” ~ Booklist

“The story of Mallory in The Promise uncovers the harsh reality American women can experience when they follow their hearts into a very different culture. Her story sheds light on how Islamic society is totally different from the Christian marriage covenant between one man and one woman. This novel was inspired by actual events, and Beth reached out to me during that time. It was heartbreaking to watch those real-life events unfolding. I salute the author’s courage, persistence and final triumph in writing a revealing and inspiring story.” ~ Nonie Darwish, author of The Devil We Don’t Know and Cruel and Usual Punishment

“The Promise is an only too realistic depiction of an American young woman motivated by the best humanitarian impulses and naïve trust facing instead betrayal, kidnapping and life-threatening danger in Pakistan’s lawless Pashtun tribal regions. But the story offers as well a reminder just as realistic that love and sacrifice are never wasted and that the hope of a loving heavenly Father is never absent in the most hopeless of situations.” ~ Jeanette Windle, award winning author of Veiled Freedom, Freedom’s Stand and Congo Dawn

“Beth Wiseman has written an unforgettable book that takes the reader into the heart of darkness in the most complex society in the world, Pakistan. The Promise has many tension-filled moments laced with wonderful imagery and detail. Do not miss this book! ~ Jean Sasson, New York Times bestselling author of Princess: A True Story of Life behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia

“Promises. Easy to make, far easier to break. Beth Wiseman tells a gripping story of promises, both made and broken. Mallory’s journey, along with Tate, is one for the ages. The Promise is on my All-Star List.” ~ Lis Wiehl, New York Times bestselling author

She left her job as a journalist in 2008 to write novels fulltime.

Wiseman has a deep affection for the Amish and their simpler way of life, and while she plans to continue writing Amish love stories, she is also branching out into other areas. In her daring new novel, her third non-Amish, contemporary, Wiseman jumps way outside the box. The Promise will take readers far away from Amish country and the small Texas towns of her previous releases to a dangerous place on the other side of the world. Inspired by actual events, Wiseman believes this is the book she’s been working toward for a long time.

  • POWERFUL

    Wow, fantastic story. Very powerful. Words can not express how much I loved this book. Easily a top book of the year for me. Just like Beth Wiseman’s previous books she has the power to draw readers in and really feel every emotion going on. She makes you rejoice with them, feel scared for them and so much more.

    I really do not want to give to much away about this book because its just that good that needs to be read and experienced by the reader. I loved Mallory’s character and determination to fulfill a promise made years ago. I will warn that this is not a quick, simple beach read but a deep book with some very scary situations involved that will give you an eye opening experience. It is based on actual events that the author was close to and that makes it so much more real.

    As with all of Beth’s books, I loved this one too. She is a great author that I always look forward to reading. Thank you Beth for writing something out of the box and drawing me into the story so well.

    * I received this book through Litfuse for the purpose of this review. Thank You!

  • THE PROMISE BY BETH WISEMAN

    It’s not everyday that an author steps outside of her comfort zone and writes an edgy and potentially controversial story inspired by contemporary events – but that’s what Beth Wiseman has delivered to us in The Promise.

    The Promise takes us across continents and across cultures to examine matters of the heart and of faith.

    The novel deals with matters of life and death that’s inspired by real events that personally involved the author.

    If you are looking for a book that will challenge your views and stretch your beliefs – that will cause you to question the choices you would make under similar circumstances – that will have you eyeing contemporary events from a variety of viewpoints – than The Promise by Beth Wiseman is a book you will not want to miss!

    I’m not sure what I was expecting going into The Promise, but I was very surprised to find that it wasn’t at all what I thought it was going to be. Not saying that it’s a bad thing though! While the story set off a little slow, it soon gets really interesting.

  • THE PROMISE ~ BETH WISEMEN

    Excellent story, couldn’t put the book down. The cover and back cover do not really give you suspense, drama, love and meaning behind this book. I am glad that I received this book for review and had to read it… I would not have picked this up in the store to read, due to the description. However, this is a book that is based on a true story and you don’t really know that until you read the end wrap up by the author. What an adventure, learning experience and it rips your heart out……

    I started this book and couldn’t put it down, we lost the power and I was left in the dark very upset because I wanted to know what was going to happen. Luckily 2 hours later the power came back on and I got out of bed and finished the book. (of course dead the next day due to lack of sleep)..

  • THE PROMISE

    I envy Mallory and her ability to embark on a journey of a lifetime. I have always wanted to do that, but because I have such a deep sense of responsibility for my family, I have never done that.

    As a reader, I fell in love with Mallory’s journey. Beth did a great job at crafting this story in such a way that WE the readers feel like we are living it right a long with her.

    What I did not realize though while reading this story, it is based upon an actual event, so that made the story even MORE enjoyable for me.

    If you get the chance, READ this book. You will not be able to put it down.

  • BOOK REVIEW: THE PROMISE

    I really enjoyed this story. I think reading the back, about the real life events that led up to the book, made it even more powerful. I think so many of us are naive about what is going on outside our country, and how it is affecting those inside our country. The story opened my eyes in many ways and I was aware of many of the things going on.
    I recommend this book, especially if you like a book you can really sink your teeth into and follow along. It is not a quick easy read as the subject is pretty intense!

This is a compassionately written story concerning a true interaction of events that occurred to a friend of Beth Wiseman. I admire Beth’s trust in God and bravery to write this story. She is to be congratulated. Without a doubt – it would not have been published in a country different from America – our home.

  • VERY GOOD!

    This book was not at all what I was expecting. Granted, I hadn’t read the back cover until it arrived in my mailbox. This book was really refreshing because it’s unique and also based on a true story. It’s not a typical cliché romance and actually held a bit of suspense as Mallory is held captive and the reader has no idea what might happen. Honestly, I didn’t see much of the romance in the book aside from the fact that people wanted Mallory to come home alive.

    The only thing that irked me a bit is that her boyfriend at the start had a long conversation about faith and Muslim vs. Christianity. While I understand this is a real story, I was disappointed to see Christianity displayed as such a judgmental faith.

  • THE PROMISE REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY REMINDER

    This book is based on a true story and I really enjoyed it. Some parts of the story were obvious to me and I kept wanting to shout “ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!”

    If you like action and adventure you will have to get through the first half of the book that sets the scene and introduces the whirlwind that is the second half of the book.

    I do think that Beth Wiseman did an excellent job with this story. It has a Christian undertone but not in a over powering way. The characters have real struggles and yet are willing to step up and do what they think is right to help others – in more way than one. The book introduces us to different cultures and it’s amazing what it accepted as ‘normal’ in other cultures.

  • A TRUE ORIGINAL

    I was drawn right into The Promise simply because it was so different! It didn’t start out like any other book I’ve read and so I was curious! Most books are so predictable these days it’s hard to get into when you can guess from the beginning pretty much how it’s going to end.

    What do you think of when you see the title? I thought the promise would be something about a love a love story but it was nothing of the sort! Mallory does have her own love story but the promise was one made to her dying cousin. Unable to save her, Mallory vows to save someone in this life. She seems to lose sight of everything else until she can fulfill that promise.

    It’s good to be accountable to ourselves and be true to our word. But at what cost? Mallory is about to risk everything to find out. Her journey will take her somewhere she never expected nor wanted to be. I was surprised by her actions and her determination. While I admired her for it; it also caused her to make some unwise decisions. What will it cost her?

    I love Beth Wiseman’s writing and this book was no exception. It was a great, truly unique storyline with colorful characters to love and not your typical generic sorts at all.

    The Promise was a great read and I can’t wait to see what Wiseman does next.

  • REVIEW: THE PROMISE BY BETH WISEMAN

    Intense. Frustrating. Eye-opening. The author Beth Wiseman personally knows the young woman whose experience this story is based on and does an amazing job bringing the realities of the other side of the world to the page. Told from multiple points of view, the reader is able to sense that not all is what it seems. Mallory’s compassionate and emotional nature overrides her common sense and she is focused solely on having an amazing “life experience” despite the warnings and red flags that she chooses to disregard. As I was reading I felt a combination of pity for her circumstances and what-did-you-expect?!?!

  • THE PROMISE (BY BETH WISEMAN) TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY!

    The Promise is a heart-pounding, pulse racing story (based on actual events) involving love, lies and make your blood run cold danger. At times I had to put the book down just to catch my breath! I was blown away by the dedication (and naivete) of the main character, Mallory Hammond. At the same time I was disgusted and saddened to read of the horrible way human beings treat others when it’s “accepted” and even embraced in another culture. The Promise is eye-opening and (Made my think of the movie Not Without my Daughter with Sally Fields) terrifying, yet kindness and love are ever present. An incredible book and one that you won’t soon forget!

  • REVIEW & KINDLE GIVEAWAY | THE PROMISE BY BETH WISEMAN

    I was so enthralled in this story, I could not stop reading- I read this book in one sitting…it was that good! I too was charmed by Abdul, I held my breath with every turn of the page, praying Mallory would survive, I panicked right along with Tate…wishing she could just go home.

  • BOOK REVIEW: THE PROMISE

    The Promise is a quick read. Every time I came up for air, I was surprised how far along I was in the novel. It gives a very real and needed look into the culture, customs and religion of Pakistan. The characters are believable even in an unbelievable situation. I think this book would be ideal for a teen girl or young adult women’s book club. I highly recommend it.

    This book was AMAZING! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I chose to review this book, but any expectations I may have had were completely blown out of the water. I’ve read a few of Beth’s books before and none of them even compare to how amazing this story is. From the beginning of the book to the last page, I was captivated by the story. As interesting as the story was, it become even more interesting when I read the author’s notes at the end and discovered the story is based on actual events that happened to Beth Wiseman’s friend, that fact made Wiseman’s story even more powerful.

  • HIGH PACED ADVENTURE

    The Promise by Beth Wiseman is a unique book that depicts real life situations that happen. The Promise is based on personal experience of Beth Wiseman and a friend, and it is scary to think these things happen. From the start, this book took a hold of me and kept its grip until the very end. As I read this book the twists and turns were unexpected and kept me guessing until the end. Beth Wiseman writes with authority about kidney transplants, kidney diseases, India, Muslim faith, and government workings.

  • REVIEW – THE PROMISE

    Based on a true story, The Promise is an intriguing read from start to finish. The author does a great job weaving together a memorable story. I did have a slight problem with Mallory’s relationship with her boyfriend, Tate Webber, as he is suppose to be a Christian, but it is pretty obviously that they had a sexual relationship. Overall, The Promise is still a great read and I recommend it to others.

    The Promise took me a while to get into, but once Mallory set her trip to Pakistan in motion I was hooked! The book really makes you stop and think about how horribly women are treated in other cultures. If you like suspense, The Promise is a definite must read!

    Written by The Loose Screw on November 1, 2014 | e

  • Wow. This was a really interesting book. Thought provoking. I enjoyed the immigrant perspective on 9/11 and learning more about Muslim/Pakistani culture.

    I think sometimes we Americans have a presumed assumption of safety, and the things that Mallory experiences in The Promise opened my eyes to the fact that for much of the world, that’s not the case. I cannot begin to imagine living within the sound of gunfire on a regular basis. Or being unable to go out by myself, simply because I’m a woman.

    I really think you should read this. It’s deeper than a “fluff read,” but not oppressive. The Promise referenced in the title refers to something that happens when Mallory was teenager, and I think it was traumatic enough to leave her emotionally stunted in a way that clouded her judgement later.

    I stayed up last night to finish up “The Promise” because I just HAD to know how the book was going to end before going to bed. It took a chapter or two to get into the story, but once the setting and characters were introduced, the story line took off.

    All Mallory wanted to do was to help save a life-to feel like she made a difference. She struggles through out the book with her relationships with her family and with her belief in God. She is so determined to fulfill an old promise, that she’s not smart or cautious in how she tries to help a family in Pakistan. Ultimately at the end of the book though, she recognizes who she can count on.

    Clean, christian book with a very intriguing and romantic story line. VERY very good! Would highly recommend this book!

    Wiseman’s book gave light to the disconcerting reality many young, American women have fallen victim to, a reality I knew nothing about until now. I was on the edge of my seat hoping Mallory wouldn’t go through with her foolish decisions, and then hoping she would be able to make it out alive! However, the book seemed to focus more on prayer, whomever you may be praying to, rather than the need for Jesus as our Savior.

    Every so often there comes along a book that takes a 180 degree turn from the ordinary girl meets boy story. This is such a read I ended up with more than questions and less answers.

    We meet Mallory Hammond and Tate Weber as they pursue their relationship with each other, their families, friends and all important their faith.

    It is a thought provoking, edge of your seat journey from a small town in Texas to clear across the world. This book makes a great addition to your library.

  • A STORY OF ONE WOMAN’S BRAVERY IN THE FACE OF DANGER

    Loosely based on actual events, The Promise gives the reader an inside look into the life of a woman that braved the unknown for the sake of love. Beth Wiseman takes you on an emotional journey that takes you from an area of safety and freedom to an area ravaged by war and fueled by hate. Her attention to detail really brought the story to life and kept me engrossed to the very end. I found it to be a real page turner and I was sad to see it come to an end. I really came to love the characters in this story and felt privileged to be apart of their lives. The author took a tragic event in the life of a friend and turned it into a fictional work of art that is both entertaining and engaging. You don’t want to miss this story of courage and bravery in the face of extreme danger.

  • “THE PROMISE” BY BETH WISEMAN

    The Promise sheds light on an American-Islamic problem: immigration by devious methods. Wiseman shares that Islamic (Pakistani) men are trying to trick American women into marrying them to pave the path for their visas to be issued to gain passage onto American soil. This is something I know nothing about, and so if it is the big issue that Wiseman implies, then it most certainly must become known. Books can be great vehicles for social change, or at least social awareness. I don’t know what Wiseman’s motivation was in writing this story: if it was to wake up Americans to an international problem, then it succeeds.

    We follow Mallory someone who really wants to do some big good thing for someone. Particularly saving a life. She basically leaves her life behind to travel to a far off country in hopes of attaining that goal. She disregards reason, advice and her families wishes and pays a hefty penalty. It is a strong reminder that not everyone is who they say they are online and that we should really use some good old fashioned common sense! Thankfully there is a happy ending but I have a feeling that in real life this happens more than not and without the happy ending. This book gives an inside glance at the world outside of Christianity.

    One of the great things about this story is that it’s based off a true story. As far-fetched and bizarre as some of it may seem, this actually happened. The main character, Mallory, has a heart to change the world. However, Mallory is still a bit naive about things. This is a huge part of what got her in such trouble. This book serves not only as an adventure story, but a good warning for those with good intentions, but susceptible to getting caught in online scams. It has a lot of good messages to it, and I believe this is Wiseman’s best work yet.

    The Promise is a very intriguing—and scary—novel. It’s one of those books that you can’t put down because you have to know how it all turns out, but you want to put it down because the protagonist is being so stupid. I do understand, though, how Mallory could have been taken in by Abdul. And I do think there are a lot of idealistic young women who should read this novel, as it provides a powerful warning and shows the power of real love.

    Wow! What a great book! This was one of those where I stayed up very, very late, against my better judgement, because I could not stop reading. The concept behind this book was intriguing, the action kept moving, and it was just an enthralling read in general. I love many books, but few captivate me as The Promise did.

    Mallory, the main character, ends up making a dangerous journey to Pakistan to (possibly) marry a man — in name only — as a desperate attempt to save his leukemia-ridden daughter. (Unique story line!)

    One thing I loved about this book is that it was one of those that helps you remember how good we have it here in America. Some people have to live under such awful circumstances! We all should stop more often just to be thankful.
