Life as Kim and Krickitt Carpenter knew it was shattered beyond recognition on November 24, 1993, two months after their marriage, when their Ford Escort was hit from behind by a fast-moving truck. A massive head injury left Krickitt in a coma for weeks. When she finally emerged from the coma, she recognized her parents and everyone else-but she didn't know Kim. She had no idea who he was. The "Krickitt" Kim had married essentially died in the accident. The Vow is the true tale of the reconstruction of two lives and a marriage after an event so shattering that most others would have parted ways long ago. Though it was not easy, and it tested every fiber of who they were, Kim and Krickitt fell in love all over again.

"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."
