5.0 out of 5 stars The Promise, 11 April 2011
This is a very gripping and intriguing story, showing how unrest in the Middle East has been repeating itself over the years. Different viewpoints are given. There are two time frames in the story which goes back and forth between the 1940s and around 2005, linking points between them.

The heroine is an 18 year old girl, finding out about her grandfather having found his 1940s diaries, and undertakes to fulfil a promise he made in the 1940s.

Takes 2-3 viewings to get to grips with it all. However, with each viewing I found I got more from it and suspect this will continue.

Highly recommended.
