    1. RC Stephens does it again with another emotional roller coaster of a ride. This book is filled with heartache, mystery and suspense. You take an emotional journey with Eisav and Grace as they grow from friendship to love. It's hard to put into words the feels you get from this book.

    2. What a beautiful story of love and hope that will take you through a roller coaster of emotions. Where Promises Die by R.C. Stephens is so full of angst, you will feel it in your soul. I was literally held captive by this story. Drawn in and terrified at the same time. Grace finds herself plucked from everything she knows after being orphaned and dropped in the middle of nowhere Iowa. Now she must find a way to fit in a rural and religious town after the tragic loss she suffers. Taken in by the [...]

    3. This book hits so many emotions on so many levels, I find it hard to pull my thoughts together to tell readers how beautiful this story is. Grace and Eisav's story is as heartbreaking as it is beautiful. The story is full of secrets and lies that impact so many of the characters and complicates lives that should have been left untainted.Grace loses so much through the course of this story. After losing her mother, her city life is uprooted and she is plunked down in rural Iowa. Keeping silent in [...]

    4. I'm a huge fan of R.C. Stephens and the raw emotion that's usually in her writing. I love a emotional read and she always delivers. This was a beautiful story that had me in a slight tailspin while reading it.At 11 years old Grace is basically adopted by her mothers best friends family who is practically cult like in there religious beliefs but, she quickly binds with the black sheep of the family Eisav. He brings joy to Grace but also dishes the ultimate break to her fragile heart! There's a fe [...]

    5. 4,5Olhamm, eu gostei! Adoro um dramalhão e esse foi bem escrito. Bom exemplo de livro escrito em terceira pessoa e que prende desde o início. Que família! Muitos acontecimentos ruins, segredos, descobertas Muitas coisas aconteceram e a autora conseguiu abordar tudo sem exagerar. Só no finalzinho não curti a passagem de tempo, algo como "dois dias depois""dois meses depois"três meses depois"s fazia parte para dar tempo de tudo se acertar então aceitei bem.Eisav e Grace sofreram demais, von [...]

    6. Will try to finish this later (stopped @ 46%). I really liked the first part of the story, but kind of lost interest in the second part.

    7. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for Stephanie's Book Reports.**Carla's Five Star ReviewPoor Grace has just lost her mother. She is just eleven years old, so she does not know what is going to happen to her. She soon winds up on the Duncan's front porch. Mrs. Duncan and Gracie's mom were best friends when they were in high school, so her mother thought the Duncan's would be a good fit for everyone involved. Her new home is in Sade, Iowa. She finds out quickly that [...]

    8. Where promises die So this is a tough one for me, I've sat and thought about this review to see if I can really express how this book makes you feel so others understand it and I'm still pretty much at a loss for the right words. This book will literally tear you apart piece by piece and just when you think you can take no more does a plot twist blow your world apart again, the emotional journey you take with this book will leave you exhausted at the end as you try and compose yourself to contin [...]

    9. You Thought Your Family was CrazyWhew! R.C. Stephens gives her readers a storyline filled with everything but the kitchen sink with Where Promises Die. Each turn of the page was like opening a Pandora's box, never knowing what was going to happen next. "Grace was his undoing; it was just a matter of time before the prophecy came to fruition."Eisav Duncan (not a fan of that first name, also not highly religious) has been smitten with Grace since she was eleven years old and came to live with his [...]

    10. Stars: 4 Chapters: 37 chapters & Epilogue Length: 358 pgs. Tense of Story: Present – Third PersonGenera: New Adult Contemporary Romance Location: Iowa Did not realize that the story was not in first person (tend to stick to first person stories), it’s in third person present, which made it a little better. I like the way first person makes the reader part of the character, makes one feel connected, anything else is just not the same for me, I don’t feel like I connect [...]

    11. Um wow, what did I just read?! This book was one wild ride of emotions, anything that can happen will happen in this book.Tragedy falls on Grace at a young age and finds herself orphaned.

    13. I loved this one. Where Promises Die is the first book I have read by R.C. Stephens and it won't be the last. I loved the flow and pace of this story. It's an emotional roller coaster of a read. The story spams through the years and starts with Grace at 11 years old. At 11 Grace's mom passes away and she goes to live with the Duncans. She's broken and struggling with life and she isn't talking. She does really know the Duncans but that was her mom's wishes. The Duncans family is very religious a [...]

    14. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for Stephanie's Book Reports. This book is like strapping yourself into a rollercoaster backwards and having faith your going where your suppose to go. It's one w optional book for sure. Grace loses her mother when she is eleven so my heart immediately was torn out of my chest. I don't do well with books dealing with the death of the mother. I avoid them like the plague. Thank goodness this isn't the main focus of the book. Grace en [...]

    15. 3.5 starsI had no idea what this book would entail going in I was in for a surprise. From that blurb alone I knew this would be an full of drama, emotions and heartbreak. Add a religious aspect and a twist I'm guessing that will be a huge part of the story. Seems like I like to read similar feel stories back to back. It started slow for me it was necessary to build a lot of back story. The extreme shift from a New York city girl to small town Iowa is a hard for Grace adjust to the lifestyle and [...]

    16. An ARC was exchanged for an honest review. 4.5 Stars.This book was one of those where you sit down to read it mid-afternoon and the next time you look up it's the middle of the night. I never wanted to put this book down!PROS:-Lovable characters. I mean, Eisav was just to die for. I need an Eisav in my life!-There were so many twists and turns that I didn't see coming.-Not too cliche. There were some moments where I rolled my eyes because I thought this was going to turn into one of those other [...]

    17. This was an emotional read that definitely pulled at my heartstrings. Eisav and Grace form a deep bond when she moves in with his family after her mothers death but Jacob, Eisav's twin, is not to happy about it because he is taken by this young beauty as well. We follow the lives of all the Duncan siblings along with Grace through the years. There are many ups and downs, there were a few times I found myself yelling at my kindle, there were also a few times I had tears running down my face.This [...]

    18. **ARC received voluntarily for review**Wow what a story. Eisav & Grace met when she was 11 years old and he was 13 years old. She had just arrived at their home after her mom was killed. Grace was still traumatized after losing her mom that she closed out and wasn't speaking. Eisav loved to sing and would sing to her. Little by little she started opening up to him.Eisav family was very religious and were in something similar to a cult. Eisav was the black sheep of the family since he always [...]

    19. Josie's ReviewWhere Promises Die was a exquisitely, tragic and beautiful read. It was filled with drama, crazy plot twists and added religious tone that was crazy. There was never a dull moment in this book, with each page, character and the way the story line was going, I never knew what to expect. I’ve has the pleasure of reading a book by this author before and I happen to love how she handles harsh topics and how she makes you feel like you are there.Eisav was taken by Grace from the momen [...]

    20. The title grabbed me and of course that second chance romance piece sealed the deal !! At 11 years old Grace is ripped from all she has known in the busy NY lifestyle and brought to small town farm living after a loss so devastating it left her unable to speak. The Duncans were family friend to her mother and despite having 5 kids of their own they opened their home to Grace and she became like family. Well not to everyone , disliked by the Duncan's mother yet loved by the twin boys !! So now we [...]

    21. Find this review and more at Ramblings From This ChickI am pretty new to R.C. Stephens as Where Promises Die is only the second book of hers that I have read. But that being said, I am now a huge fan of hers! Each one of her books that I have read has been impossible to put down, and I really love that she brings such depth and emotion to her stories. Where Promises Die is a beautiful story that I highly recommend. When a tragedy occurs leaving Grace orphaned, she goes to stay with the Duncans. [...]

    22. This was a beautiful love story that took a span of a whole young life and beginning of adulthood of two young people, whose souls found a place for themselves in each other's hearts. "Their love was not part of another life. It was the kind of love that lasts through many lifetimes. The kind of love you hold onto and never let go."The beginning of the book tells the story of eleven-year-old Grace and thirteen-year-old Eisav whose paths unexpectedly collided when she lost her mother and came to [...]

    23. A modern day fairytale.Where promises die by RC Stephens was like being read a beautiful old bed time story. It is written in third person and has a nostalgic feel to it. So different from the other RC Stephens books I've read. (I loved both Halo and Dick.) This book puts RC Stephens on a whole new level. She is such a diverse writer, apparently she can write anything! Sexy one minutes, emotional the next This lady has a vivid imagination and knows how to write all types of loves. She just keeps [...]

    24. 3.5 StarsThis was my first book by RC Stephens. She’s a detailed storyteller. Where Promises Die is a sweet love story although it isn’t an easy journey for either character or them as a couple. This story is full of twists, lies and secrets. It’s also first love, and second chances, love, and promises. Eisav, “E” as I call him, is a good guy but his parents only see him as bad. His dad is such a mean and nasty man. Bad news!! Then he met Grace, thankfully they had each other to get th [...]

    25. This book was given to me for an honest review.5 starsI promise to be patient. I promise to always discuss things first. I promise to always be in your life. These are promises that an adult would try to make for the woman you love. What happens though, when you find your soul mate at age 13. A tragedy brings together two young kids and promises are made. Grown up promises. Not things you should be thinking about when you are so young. But when Grace and Eisav make these promises they think they [...]

    26. I was surprised by this book! It started out slow for me and I wasn't sure if I was ever going to get through it. Before I knew it, I had all the feels that RC wanted me to feel!My heart ached for Grace. Orphaned as her mom passes away (while living in NY), Grace is sent to Sade, Iowa, with a new family. The family is strict and have found a new age religion, something Grace doesn't necessarily understand but did not want to stir the pot w/her new family, the Duncans.What she doesn't expect livi [...]

    27. 4.5 shinning starsripeforreader/201I am not sure where exactly to start with my review. This story is about two you people who met when they were 13 and 11. But there was an instant need on Eisav's part to make Grace happy again. In reading the book you are watching them grow and flourish. Simply a breathtaking romance with years of entwined vines to hold it together.The lies and deceit that they endure from what seems to be every angle they turn is unbelievable. What touched me the most was the [...]
