Summary

Summary

Every child prodigy grows up eventually. For the Promise sisters, escaping their mother’s narcissism and the notoriety that came with her bestselling book hasn’t been easy. Minerva Promise claimed that her three test-tube daughters—gifted pianist Joanie, artistic Meg, and storyteller Avery—were engineered and molded to be geniuses. In adulthood, their modest lives fall far short of her grand ambitions. But now, twenty years after the book’s release, she hopes to redeem herself by taking part in a new documentary.

Meg, who hasn’t picked up a paintbrush in years, adamantly refuses to participate, until a car accident leaves her with crushing medical bills. While she recuperates in Seattle, the three sisters reluctantly meet with filmmaker Hal Seeger, another former prodigy. Like them, he’s familiar with the weight of failed potential. But as he digs deeper, he uncovers secrets they’ve hidden from each other and a revelation that will challenge their beliefs, even as it spurs them to forge their own extraordinary lives at last.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Promise Girls is a beautiful story about the ties that bind…Bostwick exquisitely tells the tale of the three Promise girls.” Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author
“Bostwick writes yet another strong, character-driven tale that will have any reader truly invested in the sisters.” Library Journal
“An emotionally charged, fast-paced novel…The characters are strong-willed, independent, and will go to great lengths to have normal lives. The storyline is full of unexpected twists that enhance the plot. Bostwick is an amazing author who writes about dysfunctional families with humor and kindness.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
