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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read it in a day 28. Februar 2012
Von Jen
I bought this book a few days ago. I had seen the trailer for the movie and wanted to know the real story behind it and since I had a long flight before me I decided I should buy this book. I usually do not read a lot, and most of the times I lose interest in a book very quick. But this book was different. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that the amazing story was true. But it is also very well written. Once you start reading it is impossible to put the book down! I finished it in a day. I couldn't stop reading I just wanted to know so badly how these amazing two people will end up. When I started reading it I was sitting at the airport and was therefore surrounded by people and I must say it was so very hard to hold back my tears so that I won't make a fool out of myself in front of all these strangers at the airport. I stopped believing in god years ago but when I read this book it restored my faith in god. It also restored my faith in humanity. I am only 20 years old so I can't be saying I have been treated bad by guys or have been divorced or anything like that but nothing seems stable anymore, divorce has become something so normal that my parents still being together is something special and rare. At times like this hearing about a true story, not some hollywood happy end but something real, it's special! I fell in love with the book, and the people in it, Krickitt and Kim have truly touched my heart.

Read it and you know what I mean!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An amazing and inspirational vow of love 19. September 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Vow is one of the most amazing TRUE love stories that I have ever read. In our disposable society today, it is so refreshing to read about true love, faith, and commitment.
Kim Carpenter's wife, Krickitt, was not expected to survive massive head injuries sustained from a head on collision with a truck. Miraculously and against all odds, she did survive. Her faith in God, along with the unrelenting adoration and help of her husband and family (and of course all of the doctors!) helped pull Krickitt back into a functioning world. Unfortunately, Krickitt lost all memory of her brief marriage, engagement and courtship with her husband. Kim held on steadfast to his marriage vows and never, never gave up, despite the unsurmounting odds of their marriage ever surviving such tragedies.
It is so humbling to read of their devout faith in God, which pulled them both through some incredible life challenges, if not providing miracles in their lives, time and time again. Kim's heartfelt love for Krickitt comes through strongly and I do so admire his integrity, his devotion and the love he has for his wife. This story is a huge testament to the power and bond of love and marriage. I do believe that many men in his position would have walked out and not stood by Krickitt's side.
The Carpenters renewed their wedding vows for a second time, as Kim had to woo Krickitt all over again, as she had no memory of her husband at all. Their lives will no longer be what it was before the accident and Krickett is not the same person she was before, as is Kim. Both have grown and both have a deeper commitment and love for one another.
Living a nightmare in every conceivable way, the Carpenter's faith in God gave them the strength and will to persevere.

Inspiriert von dem Film, der mich ab der ersten Minute gefesselt hat, habe ich mir dieses Buch bestellt. Mich interessierte die wahre Geschichte der zwei Menschen, die hinter diesem berührenden Film steht. Die Grundstimmung des Buches weicht dabei meiner Meinung nach stark von der des Filmes ab. Während sich die Handlung im Film mehr auf die Beziehung der Hauptfiguren zueinander und deren Entwicklung nach der Katastrophe stützt, stehen im Buch eher die Geschehnisse des Unfalls mit den anschließenden Krankenhausaufenthalten und Therapiemaßnahmen der weiblichen Hauptperson im Mittelpunkt. Von Anfang an habe ich mir die Frage gestellt, welchen Grund die beiden Personen gehabt haben müssen, ihre Lebensgeschichte der breiten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich zu machen. Die Antwort darauf steckt in diesem Buch! ;)
Um es kurz zu sagen: Wer den Film nicht als kitschig empfindet, sondern als traurig und schön zugleich, wer ein offenes Ohr für die Lebensgeschichten anderer Menschen hat, wer ein spannungsreiches und gut zu lesenes Buch erwartet - der sollte diese Geschichte unbedingt kennen lernen!!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen reader from CT 26. Juni 2000
Von Stacy
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
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.

I got gaps, and together we fill them. Think about that for a moment. We all have things that were good at and not-so-good at, but together we fill each others gaps. When we work together and complement each other by filling in the gaps, we can achieve our dreams hand in hand. &quote;

God hasnt forgotten you, he said with quiet confidence. God will never forget you. He says he will never leave you comfortless, and he wont. You cant use him up or wear him out. Hang on to him, Kim. Hes the most powerful force for good you have. He wont forget you. So please dont forget him. &quote;

Krickitts Christianity is in her core, Kimits part of her soul. Her soul cant be affected by any injury because its immortal. Her faith will always be there. Its there now. Weve seen it. God has preserved her for some great purpose, and her faith is there to carry her through. &quote;
