Publisher's summary

A new provocative love story from the New York Times best-selling author of All the Ugly and Wonderful Things.

"The story of Zee and Gentry is the reason we read." (Brunonia Barry)

Their journey will break them - or save them. A moving and complicated love story for our time, The Reckless Oath We Made redefines what it means to be heroic. Zee has never admitted to needing anybody. But she needs Gentry. Her tough exterior shelters a heart that's loyal to the point of self-destruction, while autistic Gentry wears his heart on his sleeve, including his desire to protect Zee at all costs. When an abduction tears Zee's family apart, she turns to Gentry - and sets in motion a journey and a love that will change their lives forever.

"[A] mind-blowing book that has left me scrambling to pick up the pieces of my brain and my shattered heart.... Prepare to have your mind and heart expanded to their limits." (The Oklahoman)

Critic reviews

“Leave it to Bryn Greenwood to find loyalty and love in a world that seems devoid of both.... Captivating, complex, and relentless, the story of Zee and Gentry is the reason we read, the chance to take a journey we’d never dare in real life, one that changes our perspective forever.” (Brunonia Barry, author of The Lace Reader)

“Unforgettable...Greenwood depicts an unconventional romance with honesty and tenderness. [This] upside-down contemporary fairy tale captivates with its wonderfully inventive storytelling and its compassionately drawn, flawed characters.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

“The inventiveness of the plot is nicely matched by the richness of the characters, as the unlikely duo of Zee and Gentry prepares for the battle of their lives.” (Booklist)
