Publisher's Summary

It happens in the chill of a September night, 1939: Their small Polish village is raided, burned to the ground. Anna, a devoutly Catholic teenager, watches as her friend is shot, as her father is dragged off for conscription in the German army.

Szymon, the young village priest, stands silently with his parishioners as their church is ransacked and torched. Anna clings to him - her dear friend and confidant - and by some luck, the Germans spare them.

Five Septembers later, Anna and Szymon still cling together, now amid the turmoil of war. Though Anna dreads her engagement to a local ruffian and Szymon fears for his father's life back home, the two find solace in their friendship.

But when the Soviet army comes to "liberate" them, Anna endures an unspeakable atrocity and Szymon suffers his own tragedy. Now bound even more tightly by the sorrows they carry, they face a choice: honor the vows they've made to others or risk everything for the chance at salvation in each other.

    Story
    "First audible book I have not finished!"
    What would have made The Vow better?

    As stated in a previous review, the performance is terrible. Perhaps the story could be better with a different storyteller but I am not convinced.

    Story
    "I should have just read it"

    The story is good enough to keep my attention but the performance is awful. The voices sound too similar and is this in Poland or the Midwest? There are some attempts at a Polish accent that sound awful but most of the characters sound American. I think they should have had someone else do the narrating. It almost ruined the story for me.

    "romantic"

    I loved this novel. It is a very innocent story yet romantic. I'm glad I picked this book up. 😊
    The narrator made the novel much more interesting.
