If you could wish one thing for your daughter, what would it be?

Jenny lost her beloved mother as a teenager, and was left devastated. As a parting gift she left her daughter a bundle of letters, one for each significant day of Jenny’s future. First date, first broken heart, graduation day… and one for the day Jenny meets the love of her life.

Her mother’s letters are everything to her, but how can Jenny ever become the confident, successful woman her mother wanted her to be when her heart is broken by her loss? When an unexpected meeting has Jenny mistaken for somebody she’s not, Jenny learns that sometimes pretending is the easiest way to tell the truth and that loving someone can mean letting them go…

First Line of Promise Me by Jade Beer

If only, just for once, my shift had finished on time.

My Thoughts on Promise Me by Jade Beer

This book whisked me away to the frothy world of weddings, fabulous designer wedding dresses and all the excitement and stress of wedding planning. Full of wedding tensions, but not from the usual angles, this was a book that was very easy to relate to.

The characters were an entertaining mix, ranging from motherly characters that I want to adopt me, to a lonely want-to-be-bride that I wanted to both hug and slap. I ran the full gauntlet of emotions with them, laughing some big dirty laughs and then sadly sniffling my way through the pages. It both broke and then mended my heart.

One thing I really loved was that it wasn’t the story I was expecting.  I felt maybe the letters theme was a bit overdone, but this played on the concept that what if you hadn’t met the traditional milestones that your mother might have expected.  That felt very realistic and also very touching.

About Jade Beer

Hello!
I'm Jade. I'm a novelist, mother to two young daughters and the editor of Conde Nast Brides. 

I love writing about women and all the challenges we face in our daily lives. I've been lucky enough to work with some incredibly talented women throughout my career as a journalist and editor - ones who juggle the most all-encompassing careers with family and friendships and everything else that life throws at them. They often make it look so easy. But we all know it's not. And that need to present one version of yourself to the world, while keeping the grittier, less

Although work places me full time in London, my heart is in the countryside where I live with my husband and our two daughters. The Cotswolds is where my husband and I used to spend romantic weekends plotting our future together long before children came along and is now where I watch them both run free, hoping I will keep them close for many years to come.
