Do you promise you'll always be here for me?
It was a game they played, only it wasn't a game. Maggie Marks held on to Elijah's childhood promises as a way of escaping a life that was far from perfect. Elijah Lugo was her neighbor, her best friend, her family. He was everything her parents refused to be, everything she needed. He was her first kiss and a witness to more of her father's drunken rants than she could count. He was there at her wedding and then held her when it all fell apart. Elijah was in love with her, but she was afraid loving him would eventually mean losing him too.
They were no longer kids, pretending everything would work out in the end.
When Maggie's father reenters her life in an unexpected way, revealing long held secrets, her world is turned upside down and she will need Elijah more than ever.
A story of friendship and family - the promises you make and the ones you keep.
