“Gary Friedman’s 'The Promise' is the first in a trilogy that follows David on his journey to fulfill his promise,” a reviewer said. “This was a very inspirational book.”

“The Promise” by Gary Friedman follows protagonist, David Hynes, after a failed attempt at musical fame in Nashville lands him back in his hometown of Buffalo, NY where the family and friends he blocked out to find fame still live. A near fatal car crash lands David in the hospital where he makes a promise to God that he will redeem himself and follow a better path. His promise leads him down a path which takes him to Georgia and back, altering many lives along the way, including his own.

A story of overcoming, “The Promise” demonstrates the value of getting back up when you’ve been knocked down, and how the quality of life is determined not by things but by people and how you positively impact them. Friedman wrote this story to help readers consider how their lives may be if they kept every promise and took every opportunity.

“We all face crossroads every day, but what turns a crossroad into a dead-end is the failure to act,” the author said.

“Gary Friedman’s 'The Promise' is the first in a trilogy that follows David on his journey to fulfill his promise,” a reviewer said. “This was a very inspirational book.”
