Barbara Gurney Shared Some Photos of Her at the Launch of 'The Promise'
Barbara Gurney, author of book The Promise, has shared with us a few photos of her event at the City of Gosnells Library Service. The launch turned from talking about book to an afternoon tea with friends - old and new.
There were several local dignitaries in attendance, including the local Mayor, the Deputy Mayor, two councillors and the West Australian government's MLA for her district.
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.
