About this title

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of The  Carousel and Daybreak  comes a stirring, timely story of adultery and its  impact on the American  family.

Margaret and Adam Crane seem to have a near perfect  life--she's a teacher, he's a computer executive, and  together they are lovingly raising their own  children and Margaret's orphaned niece. Then one day  the phone rings--and suddenly everything changes  forever as a woman from Adam's university days  reappears in his life, and an old affair re-ignites. At  the same time, there are problems in Adam's  workplace--a possible takeover and downsizing. The  reverberations from these two circumstances will touch  many lives and bring with them changes that no one  could have predicted.

In   Promises, Belva Plain--as only she can  do--depicts the fraying fabric of family life in  the wake of extramarital affairs, while at the same  time celebrating the importance of strong and  nurturing family values. Dramatic, compelling, and  always exciting, Belva Plain's storytelling talents  confirm her standing as the foremost chronicler of  family life today.

From the Back Cover:

With her three children, beautiful home, and loving husband, Margaret Crane is a woman others would envy. Adam's job has cushioned them nicely over the years. It should be a time of contentment, rewards, of new challenges together. But lately Adam has been working too late, too hard, at the office. Margaret is sure it's just the rumored takeover of his company -- until she meets Randi, The Other Woman....

Meanwhile, Nina, the orphaned cousin the Cranes raised as their own daughter, is reveling in New York, dating Keith, an investment banker. But Keith has a secret he has not shared with Nina. All he asks for is time...and patience. As Nina clings to stolen weekends with Keith, Margaret tries to ignore warning signs of her own failing marriage. A rift has developed between the two women who have loved each other as mother, daughter, friends. Keith is not welcome in Margaret's home. And Nina herself has become the other woman....
