Haunted by a childhood trauma that leaves her orphaned, eleven-year-old Grace finds herself on the doorstep of the Duncans, her new adoptive family, broken and unable to speak. Catapulted from a bustling New York City life, she must find a way to call the rural town of Sade, Iowa her new home. Twins Eisav and Jacob Duncan immediately take a liking to Grace, wanting to erase the dark shadows etched on her perfect features.

As the twins vie for her affection, it becomes clear which one makes her smile.

Grace never has a choice for falling in love.

What starts as a way to coax his adopted sister to speak and smile, blossoms into the kind of love that lasts a lifetime.

In this small town it shouldn’t be a crime to fall in love . . . 

Isaac Duncan warns his son to stay away from the forbidden fruit. Eisav never listens. 

Now an intricate web of lies and secrets stand in the way of Eisav winning back the only woman he has ever loved.

In a place where yesterday’s promises were broken, Eisav must learn what it truly means to love and cherish . . .

But is he too late?


Another wonderful story from R.C. Stephens!

Where Promises Die is an emotional story about an 11-year-old girl, Grace, whose mother just passed away.  Grace is sent to live with her mother’s best friend’s family from high school.  The Duncan’s have five children, three girls and twin boys, and live a much different life than Grace was used to.  Grace had a difficult time adjusting but Eisav, one of the twins, helped her and they became very close.  As they got older, their relationship grew from one of friendship to one of love.  They started acting on their love, but they needed to sneak around as Eisav’s father was a very strict man.  Then, one evening… Eisav and Grace were caught and that night still haunts them both.

Where Promised Die’s story line is well paced and so full of emotions.  I read the book in one sitting and I absolutely recommend you to one-click this fabulous story!
