9781433675799: The Vow: The True Events that Inspired the Movie

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.

About the Author:

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.

Review:

"A horrific 1993 car accident left the newly married authors with injuries that included head trauma and the loss of wife Krickitt’s memory. The story is about how her husband persevered to rebuild their marriage—as a stranger, at first—and how their Christian faith helped them persevere. Written from the husband’s point of view, the book describes the contradictory roles a man must accept when caring for an impaired partner and the struggles they both had with the notoriety of their story, which became a movie. John McLain’s resonant voice and theatrical chops highlight the inspirational aspects of the couple’s story without overplaying the melodrama. His splendid interpretation uncovers more emotional depth in the husband’s perspective than would be obvious from the narrative and dialogue alone."
