Life as Kim and Krickitt Carpenter knew it was shattered beyond recognition on November 24, 1993, two months after their marriage, when their Ford Escort was hit from behind by a fast-moving truck. A massive head injury left Krickitt in a coma for weeks. When she finally emerged from the coma, she recognized her parents and everyone else-but she didn't know Kim. She had no idea who he was. The "Krickitt" Kim had married essentially died in the accident. The Vow is the true tale of the reconstruction of two lives and a marriage after an event so shattering that most others would have parted ways long ago. Though it was not easy, and it tested every fiber of who they were, Kim and Krickitt fell in love all over again.
A whole lotta people are going to be flooding the book stores because a movie just came out for this book. For those of you who have seen the movie and are thinking "Oh goody! The book is gonna be just like the movie!", I can tell you now that you have never been so wrong before in your life.
Everything about this book is different from the movie. The character's names are different, their jobs are different, how they met is different, their relationship is different, the girl's parents aren't horrible rich people, the way the crash happened is different, the city they live in is different, the girl's condition is different, they never got divorced, they had lots of fights... Everything was wrong in the movie!! BUT, that doesn't keep this from being a great and heartwarming story.
It's not often when I read books about events that actually happened, but being the romantic crazed teen girl that I am, I wanted to test the waters for this story. This book is well written for such inexperienced writers ,and the air of truth in it makes the book memorable. also, this book is perfect for those nice christian folks out there. This couple gives all their hope and pain to God and in return God loves them and preforms miracles. It's amazing to read about. If you've read my blogs before than you should know that I love books that seem real. well this book is about as real as it gets. Kim and Krickett's love for each other is vast and it brings a new meaning to soul mates. So, just because this book isn't like the movie, it's still worth the read. There is no better feeling than to finish this book and know that it's real. Plot: 4.5/5 stars Cover 4/5 stars -Katie
