Cross My Heart Kindle Edition
'An emotional but moving tale, that carefully considers life's unexpected turns, accepting responsibility, altering your purpose in life and learning to love in different ways.' Mrs B's Book Review on Cross My Heart
'Cross My Heart is my first Pamela Cook book and I loved it. I was hooked on this book right from the start and finished it within a day. In reading the blurb I thought I had the whole story figured out before I even started but this book was so much more.' The Lucky Find Book Club
'This latest novel from Pamela Cook is a real page-turner packed with emotion from start to finish, a haunting story about the power of a promise to change the course of lives.' Book Relish
'This is one of those rare books that draws you in from the first page. I was completely engrossed in this book and I didn't want to put it down.
The story takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster, where you laugh and cry and laugh again. Very few books are able to walk to line between heart-warming and heart-breaking, but Cross My Heart perfectly captures both of these feelings.' Gem's Book Nook--This text refers to the paperback edition.

This novel has a definite 'domestic suspense' feel to it but is also driven by two compelling characters in Tess and her foster child Grace. Apart from the intriguing plot, I loved watching the relationship between Tess and Grace develop. Pamela handles their interactions so realistically, I really felt for both characters and the awkward, sad but ultimately uplifiting situation in which they found themselves.
The equine therapy angle was fascinating. Even though I don’t know that much about horses, I found Pamela's description of the therapy so interesting (and in the hands of a good writer, described in just the right amount of detail.)
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Cross My Heart and, in fact, read the whole second half in one sitting to find out what happens!
Beautifully written, this women's fiction novel explores the unique bonds of female friendship and the vulnerability, and resilience, of women, fighting for happiness and fulfillment.
Pamela's descriptive writing invites you in and keeps you wanting more. The story if beautifully written and tells a tale of a forever bond that is formed between friends and continues long after they have drifted their separate ways.
It's a story that has warmth and depth with characters and events that are relatable and relevant... I loved it.
A beautiful story that both broke my heart and repaired it. A great read.
Tessa is a business woman who lives in Sydney with her high flying husband Josh - its all about work, socializing and no children. She has lost touch with her childhood friend Skye, but when Skye is found dead by her ten year old daughter Grace at home in the country, Tessa is reminded of the promise she made to Skye that if anything ever happened to her that Tessa would look after Grace
This is a huge shock to Tessa, but she is committed to fulfill her promise and collects Grace from her foster house and returns to Grace's home to sort things out. Meanwhile, Josh buries himself in his work as this was not part of his plan at all.
Grace is severely traumatized by her mother's death and has refused to speak. Tessa tries to bring her out of her grief but it is equine therapy and horses that eventually helps Grace to cope. During this time Tessa re-discovers secrets about Skye's life - and her own - that have been banished to the back of her mind until something triggers them.
This novel covers a number of issues including death, domestic violence, friendship, small town situations and the love of animals. The situations depicted were realistic and you could imagine that these could easily happen to someone you may know - the ingredients of a great book.
I've been a fan of Pamela's previous Rural Fiction books, but this book is a whole new level and I can't wait to see what her future titles hold. Well done Pamela.
Contemporary fiction masterfully told and with authentic and relatable characters, Cross My Heart is a beautiful story about mothers, daughters and friendship.
As a writer, she’s consistently excellent, but this Pamela Cook read comes with a little twist. Highly recommended.
