Summary

A gripping and poignant wartime saga following the highs and lows of the young, courageous members of the Women's Army. 

January 1941. Peggy Collins has learned a lot during her time as a Spark Girl. Posted to Swansea as a driver to the squadron leader, she often hears things she shouldn't, and she knows to be discreet, understanding how serious the phrase 'loose lips sink ships' really is. 

Peggy meets and falls in love with pilot Jim Hudson, but her heart is broken when he becomes missing in action, and Peggy is left fearing the worst. That isn't the end of the shocks in store for Peggy, and she is forced to remember a promise made long ago. But can she keep her word while the bombs fall?

Full of wartime adventure, romance and heartbreak, A Wartime Promise is perfect for fans of Daisy Styles, Kate Thompson and Ellie Dean.

Dull and dated story

If you want a very very very slow romantic dated story this is your book! Otherwise, no. I gave it until chapter 10 as I love the period of the book, but it just seem to be very drawn out, and cheesy!The story teller is a bit pathetic sounding too which doesn’t help the story. A good book to fall asleep to.
