Promises to Keep

(2011)
A novel by

 
 
Spring 1944. When a group of GIs arrive in the village of Columbine near Falmouth they cause a stir among the locals, especially amongst the young women. Kerry Penfold's sweetheart, Tom, is a serving soldier in France, so she is content to stand by and watch as her best friend Claire becomes smitten with one of the handsome Americans. But even Kerry cannot help but be moved by the young men, so friendly and far away from home. When charming Marvin Mcleod receives a Dear John letter from his girlfriend, Kerry becomes his shoulder to cry on and they grow close. When D-Day arrives, the GIs suddenly depart and all returns to comparative normality. But the war has left its casualties and the village is grieving for its losses. A few months later, Tom is wounded and discharged. Kerry is secretly relieved that he will no longer have to fight, but her joy soon turns to dismay when she realises how bitter he has become; the war has changed him. When Tom finds out about Kerry's friendship with Marvin, he accuses her of betrayal which she vehemently denies. Matters come to a head when Claire excitedly tells Kerry that a dozen of the GIs are to return to their base, including Claire's sweetheart - and Marvin. Will Kerry finally have to choose between the two men in her life?
