found Bound to a Promise: A True Story of Love, Murder, and Redemption by Bonnie Floyd, quite captivating, as though I was reading someone’s personal journal, going through the emotional highs and lows of something I’d never want to endure. The part that stuck out the most to me is the power of forgiveness. I wondered, could I forgive someone who was a part of killing someone I love? It’s hard to wrap my mind around that. Would I want the worst for the person? And then as the author shared, what if God so clearly speaks to my heart to go and tell the murderer about Jesus. WOW! Isn’t it that Jesus desires that none perish – not one? And certainly, if Jesus can save the murderer and save that heart and forgive, why couldn’t I? It’s a lot to contemplate!
There is more to Bound to a Promise than this, but it’s an amazing true story of how Jesus upholds us – through horrific life events, the deep grief and even going over the facts over and over again in a courtroom. It’s was hard for me to put it down, several times.
I highly recommend reading this book!

From the Back Cover:
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.
