Synopsis: Hattie is barely twelve when her pa's business adventures disrupt her family and move them to the new town of Tropic, Utah, nestled in the shadows of old Ebenezer Bryce's Canyon. Her pa views the town as opportunity. Hattie is hopelessly shy and views it with apprehension; she dreads the task of making new friends. More than anything else, Hattie wants to be like her father--not afraid of meeting new people, talking to strangers, and standing up for herself. So it is with trepidation that she accepts her pa's challenge and promises to make new friends. Hattie forms more promises as she struggles to make friends, finding companionship in places she wouldn't have expected and learning that there is a difference between complaining and standing up for one's self. Promises is a heartwarming story of friendship with a touch of mystery and adventure set in the days before Bryce Canyon became a national park. Drawn from the memoirs of early Utah settlers, it is a realistic glimpse into the past and a delightful story for readers ages eight to eighty.
About the Author: Carolyn Twede Frank grew up in a small town in Utah. Her love of writing first expressed itself in the third grade when she was given the assignment to write poetry and discovered the fun of creating rhymes. In high school, she had her own column in the school newspaper, and one of her atricles took third place in a national editorial writing contest. She began college with a minor in journalism. When an instructor slashed her writing up one side and down the othere, she decideed she wasn't cut out to be a writer--even thought the teacher gave her an A, and told her that his harsh critiques were meant to prepare her for the world of writing. In 2006, as a participant in her neighborhood book club, she read a novel that bothered her immensely by its content. She thought she could write a better story than that. Her passion for writing was reawakened after twenty-five years of dormancy, and she immediately began her first novel. Carolyn currently lives in Utah with her husband and youngest daughter, where she continues to write and love life. You can visit her website at carolyntwedefrank dot com.
