"At once dizzyingly romantic and tremendously adventurous, this novel also serves as a poignant reminder of the senseless toll the violence of war can take--and the incredible lengths of heroism humans will go to in order to survive and rescue the ones they love." -- "Toronto Star"
"Fascinating, harrowing, illuminating, this is a gripping love story. Graham sheds light on a dark chapter of Canadian history, immersing the reader in 1755 Grand Pré, making vivid the flames and the pain of the Acadians deported from their idyllic homeland."

--Beth Powning, bestselling author of A Measure of Light "Toronto Star"
"In this beautifully-written, meticulously researched novel of the Acadian expulsion from Grand Pré in 1755, Genevieve Graham crafts an uncompromising glimpse into the anguish of war and the eventual triumph of love. A must read for fans of Canadian history."--Kaki Warner, bestselling author of Pieces of Sky "Toronto Star"
"Sinking into Promises to Keep is like stepping into the lush forest of whole new world. The novel sings with power, adventure, and heart."--Katherine Scott Crawford, author of Keowee Valley "Toronto Star"
"A compelling tale of a strong young woman fiercely loyal to her family and to her heart."--Sophie Perinot, author of Médicis Daughter "Toronto Star"
"Graham makes the 1755 Acadian Expulsion feel like a modern-day tragedy. Her powerful fiction is a boat sailing the choppy surf of love and war over her ocean-deep research into a vital time in Canadian history."--Jon Tattrie, author of Cornwallis: The Violent Birth of Halifax "Toronto Star"

"[Graham] has delivered a book that reads like a love letter to a time and place that figures largely in our national identity: Halifax in 1917."--Jon Tattrie, author of Cornwallis: The Violent Birth of Halifax "The Globe and Mail"
"Fans of Gabaldon and other historical fiction/romance writers will lap this up for the classy, fast-moving, easy-to-read and absorbing book that it is--with some Canadian history to boot."--Jon Tattrie, author of Cornwallis: The Violent Birth of Halifax "Winnipeg Free Press"
"Evocative of place and time, a novel blending tragedy and triumph in a poignant and uplifting tale that's sure to leave its mark upon your heart."--Susanna Kearsley, New York Times & Globe and Mail bestselling author "Winnipeg Free Press"
"Travel back to 1917 and explore a world of suffragettes, Bolsheviks and the Great War - and the love story that illuminates them all."--Jon Tattrie, author of Black Snow "Winnipeg Free Press"
"A moving Maritime story of love, loss, and the human spirit."--Lesley Crewe, author of Relative Happiness and Kin "Winnipeg Free Press"
"Graham has created a memorable story of love surviving devastation. Set during the darks days of the Halifax Explosion--the largest man-made explosion prior to Hiroshima--a young artist and a wounded soldier are forced to overcome their personal struggles in the face of disaster. Graham examines class struggles and the post-traumatic effect of war with a vivid description of early twentieth century Halifax."--Pamela Callow, international bestselling author "Winnipeg Free Press"
"Audrey is a strong female character, a hallmark of Graham's books."--Pamela Callow, international bestselling author "The Chronicle Herald"
