Summary

When a new family moves in next door, it takes Anna just two days to realise something is very wrong. She can hear their five-year-old daughter Charlie crying, then sees injuries on the little girl which cannot be ignored. Anna reports the family to the police and social services but when no one comes to Charlie's aid, Anna understands that she is alone with her fears for the child's life.
So when Charlie comes to her door asking for help, the only thing Anna can think to do is take the girl and run.
Raising delicate but deeply felt questions about our individual responsibility for the children around us, Promise is a novel that obliges the listener to ask: if Charlie were my neighbour, what would I do?

Promise will draw you in...

A modern take on a longstanding social issue. When and how ...and how far...would you go to protect a stranger's child? I fell in love with so many of the characters and have even caught myself wondering how they are doing now. This story also explores the mother-daughter bond from a fresh angle as well. Just wish there was a manual of Australian terms and items. What the heck is a pyklette??? A cookie?
