Synopsis

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.

Story of true love

This story portrays true love, and how you need to decide to love everyday. It doesn't just come, but you have to make the decision to be with someone, regardless of the time that has passed.

A truly inspiring story. Disappointed in the movie version as there was little little shared about their faith and Christian values, so the book was a refreshing look at these integral aspects of their amazing story!

Not one of my favorite reads. But not the worst!!!! Perhaps the movie will prove to be much better? Which is odd..as its normally the other way around!!!

The Vow

The true events of what happened to Kim and Krickitt recaptured in words moved me much more then the silver screen did. The film completely changed what actually happened as all movies do, but the essence of their love was still preserved. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who can afford to keep an open mind to faith as it is, to my surprise, heavily based on the Christian faith. You won't have known just watching the movie! I finished this book in half a night while on a sleepless hay feverish state and couldn't put it down once I've started the 1st chapter. One of those books that will change many of your perspectives in life.

Book exceeds the content of the Movie
May 31st, 2013
This book was such an inspiration into the commitment/covenant this man had for his wife and how he fought to win her heart back. Story is not politically correct as it shows true Christian embodiment to the sanctity of the marriage, the unrelenting love for the other spouse, the never quit and must prevail heart attitude, and the understanding that when our vows following the Bible states one flesh - we are no longer one we are join in love by three strands - god, husband, and wife! Bless this family and their love.

Awful!
April 15th, 2013
I wish I didn't pay money for this!!!!! Repetitive... boring...and NO substance other than the constant phrases on how devoted to God they were. Truly the worst book I've ever read.
