In Barbara Gurney's new novel, The Promise, we learn of an evolving but lasting friendship between four women: Eleanor, Pam, Jacqui and Rowena. Determined to keep in touch, the teenagers make a promise linked to a set of teacups, the Friendship Cups. After Great-Aunt Eleanor reveals stories of herself and her three friends, Carrie feels compelled to learn if they kept their youthful vow. Left with a matching milk jug and a notebook, Carrie contacts their families and discovers just how important the Friendship Cups were to each woman. The twists and turns in their lives reflect the ever-changing phenomena of friendships. The Promise is a heart-warming story of friendship and loyalty with a touch of romance.
