Annie Turner has lived in small-town Thompkin all of her life. Her family is poor, but she and her siblings have loving parents and a roof over their heads. As far as she’s concerned, she’s a lucky girl.
Travis Quincy’s ancestors founded Thompkin, deep in the Shenandoah Valley. He’s known immense wealth from birth, and for him that wealth is a part of his life that he’s never had to question.
While still in grade school, Annie and Travis meet and fall in love. Neither understands why they’re drawn to each other, but it doesn’t seem to matter. Like two halves of a whole, they’re only complete when they’re together. And nothing is more important than the vow they make to someday marry.
Growing up together, the rich, privileged boy and the girl from the wrong side of town find that when it comes to keeping their pledge, it’s easier said than done. Travis’s mother, Ruth, has plans for her son and they don’t include his marrying a Turner. Her painful and secret past gives her an unwanted connection to the Turner family and a reason to hate them all. With cold determination she sets out to destroy the bond between her son and Annie.
Love is magical at any age…and a promise is forever.
Love at first site, sweet romance. Promises To Keep is the classic Disney story at it’s best. Poor girl, from the wrong side of the tracks meets handsome rich boy from the “Royalty” of their small town. This is a well written fairytale. It draws you in and keeps you sighing. You have to keep in mind that these two fell in love at a young age and never looked back. Is this realistic? I don’t know but it was sweet and heartbreaking at points. Even the secondary characters are memorable, I speak of Travis’s mother here, you won’t forget her. If your in the mood for sweet romance, this is the one for you.
