A Summer Promise, A Reviews

"Katie Flynn is a wonderfully gifted writer who effortlessly transports her readers back to the past with her latest mesmerizing saga, A Summer Promise. Full of richly drawn characters that leap off the pages, beautifully evocative descriptions of life in wartime England, touching romance, heart-warming pathos and nail-biting drama, A Summer Promise is a triumphant tale of the ties that bind, love lost and found, the power of friendship and the devastation of war that hooked me in from the very first page and kept me gleefully turning the pages late into the night." Bookish Jottings "A heartwarming read from a master storyteller" Woman
