Product Description

When you marry another person, you make a vow to love and cherish your spouse through thick and thin, as long as you both shall live. But what if that commitment is tested by serious illness, or financial difficulty? Would you stay together? Are there limits on how far love can go?

Kim and Krickitt Carpenter never expected their commitment to each other to be tested so early, when 2 months after their wedding, a car accident left Krickett with a traumatic head injury and in a coma. When she awoke several weeks later, her rehabilitation began, but Krickitt had no memory of her husband. The previous 18 months when they had met, fallen in love, and been married were completely erased. Kim and Krickitt had to start all over again with the stress of physical rehabilitation, mounting medical bills and amnesia against them.

In The Vow, the Carpenters share their story of how, against enormous odds, they stuck together, fell in love again, and kept the marriage vows they'd made to each other. They also share their Christian faith, and how it sustained them through their most difficult times. In this volume, you'll read about the true events that inspired the February 2012 movie starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, and see personal photos from Kim and Krickitt.

Publisher's 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.

Author Bio

Kim and Krickitt Carpenter have two children and live in Farmington, New Mexico, where Kim is deputy CEO for San Juan County, and Krickitt works as a substitute schoolteacher.

Synopsis of Book

Kim and Krickitt Carpenter met, fell in love and, in 1993, exchanged their wedding vows. Ten weeks later, the couple survived a terrible auto accident, but awakening in the hospital, Krickitt found herself married to a stranger. Amnesia resulting from the crash left her no memory of the previous 18 months and no recollection of Kim.

With Kim committed to his marriage vows and Krickitt maintaining faith she could again love a man she had apparently loved once, the couple began the long road to a rebuilt relationship, renewing their vows two years later.

    The book was very good. I enjoyed reading it and the Faith and Love he showed was just great and inspiring. Anyone who reads this book I would not suggest seeing the movie. They are soooo different. It really made me angry that they would ruin this book and change the story so much.
