A new provocative love story from the New York Times bestselling 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

“You’ll love Zee, who fights for the people she loves with every ounce of strength she has… Zee’s life is no fairy tale, but there’s something moving about the way she lets Gentry live in his version of one… [and how] she turns out to be the hero of her own story.”
— The Washington Post

“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)

“Greenwood’s quirky, page-turning love story…is mesmerizing from its opening pages to resonant end.”
— BookPage (starred review)

“Themes of chivalry, loyalty, family, and personal responsibility, along with a recognition that people don’t need to be perfect to be worthy of love, make this latest from Greenwood… a good fit for those looking for gritty contemporary realism in their romance novels.”
— Library Journal

“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
