When a promise kept means a life is broken ... a haunting story of guilt, redemption and friendship that will have you turning pages well past bed-time.
Tessa De Santis’s child-free marriage in inner-city Sydney is ordered and comfortable, and she likes it that way.
When tragedy strikes and her childhood friend Skye Whittaker dies, Tess is bound to honour a promise to become foster-mother to Skye’s ten-year-old daughter, Grace, throwing her life upside down.
Leaving her husband and work-driven life behind, Tess travels to an isolated property where the realities of her friend’s life – and death – hit hard. The idyllic landscape and an unexpected form of therapy ease her fears, and her relationship with Grace begins to blossom.
But a secret from her earlier life with Skye refuses to remain hidden, and Tess is forced into a decision that will either right the wrongs of the past, or completely destroy her future.
Cross My Heart is a haunting story of guilt, redemption and friendship set in the beautiful central west of New South Wales.

Cross My Heart
A beautifully written and powerful story that touches on so many real and difficult subjects.
I loved every minute of it and struggled to put it down from the moment I finished the first page.
A wonderful Story
A story that draws you in and keeps you turning the pages. Beautifully told, Pamela has crafted a story that is truly worthy of a five star rating.
You won’t be able to put this down!
I read this book in less than a day because I couldn’t put it down. The way Pamela describes the scenes and characters is like no other. I was drawn into the story from the front cover to the very last word. The heartbreak, happiness and healing is palpable through every chapter. Her characterisation is on another level, and I felt like I had met each and every one of them. Whether you are an avid reader or tend to dabble, I promise you won’t regret reading this one!
