From the author of His Other House How far would you go to protect a child in danger? When a new family moves in next door, it takes Anna just two days to realise something is very wrong. She can hear their five-year-old daughter Charlie crying, then sees injuries on the little girl that she cant igre. Anna reports the family to the police and social services, but one comes to Charlie's aid. So when the girl turns up at her door asking for help, the only thing Anna can think to do is take her and run. Raising deeply felt questions about our responsibility for the children around us, Promise asks if Charlie were my neighbour, what would I do? PRAISE FOR HIS OTHER HOUSE Extraordinarily compelling ...To elaborate on Sarah Armstrong's seemingly simple plot would betray the book's deep, intertwining roots ...A tour de force. Australian Women's Weekly You can feel the weather, the damp of rthern NSW, seep through the story just as a secret creates rot in a relationship. Herald Sun Armstrong's prose is striking and clear; there is a tenderness to how her characters are portrayed ...Instead of pitting one character against ather, she undertakes the task of asking us to understand them . ..Instead of giving us someone to blame, it shows us how easy it is to inadvertently cause harm. Weekend Australian
