Bound To A Promise by Bonnie Floyd

Book Description:  At six o'clock on a cold, foggy morning in Fresno, California, Bonnie Floyd's horrific nightmare began . . . but she was wide-awake! This may sound like the beginning of a fiction thriller, but it isn't. This is a true story, and the nightmare was all too real. Life as Bonnie had known it was over, and the future she faced was unimaginable . . . unspeakable. Bound to a Promise is a nonfiction novel, told in fascinating, page-turning fiction style. This astonishing true story will grab you with the first sentence and hold you captive until the very last page. Based on Scotland Yard's investigation, newspaper reports, court transcripts, and eyewitness accounts, Bound to a Promise has it all-exotic settings, courtroom drama, real-life adventure, convicting testimony, and puzzling mystery. The key to this disturbing drama hangs on a very crucial and binding promise made to Bonnie. Did the promise maker keep that promise or was there a chance it was broken? The answer to that burning question had everlasting consequences both for the one who made the promise and to whom the promise was made. This shocking story is like an exciting action movie played out in powerful print. Don't be surprised if it captures your heart and you, too, become bound to a promise.

My Thoughts:  Wow!  What a read!  As I began reading Bound To A Promise I thought of Mark Twain's quote: “Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.”  Bonnie writes a stranger than fiction story that will break the reader's heart and also tell a tale of love and forgiveness.  
Written in the first person this story is like reading Bonnie's thoughts and feelings straight from her personal journal but in a nicely bound paperback book.
The mystery, suspense, love and forgiveness all mixed into one read is like a delicious casserole that will satisfy the palate of all those eating it . . . . court scenes (Scotland Yard), color pictures of Bonnie and her parents/family, and something I've not yet seen in another read-those little widgets that one can scan from a device to look up info.
Even though this is a nonfiction novel the reader will be immersed in a life changing, nightmare gone wrong, faith to forgiveness, love conquerors all read!
One of those reads that should not be missed!
