Callie Perry lights up every room she enters, and adores her settled family life in tony Bedford, New York. Steffi is Callie's younger sister.

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!
