Product Description

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Story Sept. 8 2000
Format:Hardcover
This is a beautiful story of love and commitment. In a world where so many couples get divorced for the sake of convenience, it's nice to read about a couple who stood by their vows (and each other) in the face of tragedy. Some of the chapters with Krickitt's journal entries get a bit long, but over all I loved it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Too slow moving. May 23 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was too unbelievable, even though it is based on a true event. I couldn't be bothered to finish it. A very religious person might like this but to me it was too far fetched.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Story Sept. 8 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is a beautiful story of love and commitment. With the average marriages' track record for divorces, it's refreshing to read the story of a couple who stuck to their vows even in the face of great tragedy. I loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars reader from CT June 26 2000
By Stacy
Format:Hardcover
This is a wonderful and heart-warming story. I highly recommend this for anyone in love now, was in love, or dreams about being in love. The true story is about a newly married couple that gets into car accident. The wife almost dies, goes into a coma, and finally awakes to remember nothing, not even her own husband. Her husband stands by her side to help her recover and to give their life a fresh start together, even though there are many ups and downs. This story touches all your emotions and reminds you how lucky some of us are in life. It is written well and the text and words flow very smoothly, as if sitting in a room with the authors and just listening to them telling you their story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story- easy read! Jan. 31 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
A newlywed myself, I bought this as an "airplane book" after seeing the Carpenter's story on "Today" and "Dateline." Not only is the story inspiring, it's also very easy to read. (I'm not the fastest reader in the world, but finished this book in 3 short sittings over a weekend!--it never made it to the plane)
In a day when the "D" word is an "easy out" this is a great example of how two people put their faith in God and each other to keep a promise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Husbands, get this book for your wife Oct. 23 2000
Format:Hardcover
I purchased this book for my wife after seeing the Carpenter's story on NBC's "Dateline". It is a touching story of how one man will go to regain his wife back.
I have yet to read the book, but I can assume my wife loved based on the fact that she finished the book in one day.
