Life as Kim and Krickitt Carpenter knew it was shattered beyond recognition on November 24, 1993. Two months after their marriage, a devastating car wreck left Krickitt with a massive head injury and in a coma for weeks.

When she finally awoke, she had no idea who Kim was. With no recollection of their relationship and while Krickitt experienced personality changes common to those who suffer head injuries, Kim realized the woman he had married essentially died in the accident. 

And yet, against all odds, but through the common faith in Christ that sustained them, Kim and Krickitt fell in love all over again. Even though Kim stood by Krickitt through the darkest times a husband can ever imagine, he insists, “I’m no hero. I made a vow.”

Now available in trade paper with a new chapter and photo insert, The Vow is the true story that inspired the major motion picture of the same name starring Rachel McAdams (The Notebook), Channing Tatum (Dear John), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), and Academy Award winner Jessica Lange.

    In the beginning I thought the book was going to be just like the movie. As I was reading I realized that it wasn't like the movie at all. I kept reading on though & I came to absolutely love it. The story line is amazing & it has made me feel really good about love & for God. I wish Kim & Krickett the best & for anyone thinking about buying this book definitely should!

    This story is so inspiring, our daughters became intrigued as my husband read the book. We identified ourselves with this in the many similarities between the couple and even got married the same year. The difference was the tragedy they endured and only hope we will have the strength to overcome something as impacting and life changing as that. It's the ultimate test of Love. The world & society has given marriage a very easy way out on the first sign of trouble. However when we say our vows, we make a promise before God and only He should be the guide to follow. Marriage is a Triangle with husband & wife in the bottom and God at the top. If each partner looks to God, they will always come together.
