From the author of Black Wattle Lake, Essie’s Way, Close to Home, and The Crossroads comes Cross My Heart, a haunting story of guilt, redemption and friendship set in the beautiful central west of New South Wales.

When a promise kept means a life is broken...a haunting story of guilt, redemption and friendship that will have you turning pages well past bed-time.

When a promise kept means a life is broken ...

Tessa De Santis's child-free marriage in inner-city Sydney is ordered and comfortable, and she likes it that way.

When tragedy strikes and her childhood friend Skye Whittaker dies, Tess is bound to honour a promise to become foster-mother to Skye's ten-year-old daughter, Grace, throwing her life upside down.

Leaving her husband and work-driven life behind, Tess travels to an isolated property where the realities of her friend's life - and death - hit hard. The idyllic landscape and an unexpected form of therapy ease her fears, and her relationship with Grace begins to blossom.

But a secret from her earlier life with Skye refuses to remain hidden, and Tess is forced into a decision that will either right the wrongs of the past, or completely destroy her future.

Cross My Heart is a haunting story of guilt, redemption and friendship set in the beautiful central west of New South Wales.

Industry Reviews

'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
