Overview

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.

Isn't it?

Meet the Author

Char Chaffin started reading romance, science fiction, and horror at a very young age. Her love of books is directly responsible for her overflowing bookcases, and the bounty stored on her new Kindle threatens to eclipse her entire paper collection. Char currently writes mainstream and contemporary romance filled with family, rich characters, and engaging plots. For her, it all comes back to love.

Char began her writing odyssey as a poet, crafting Victorian-style poetry, then went on to writing short stories. She found her niche when she began writing longer and longer short stories, until she wrote her first novel. It might never see the light of day, but writing it taught her a lot. Over the years she worked a variety of jobs, from farm hand to costume designer to fiscal accountant, before deciding a writing career was her true focus.

A native New Yorker, Char lives Upstate on a sixty-acre farm with husband Don, rat terrier Daisy Mae and two barn cats who constantly slack off on the job of keeping the barn free of varmints. The Chaffin extended family is scattered all over the continental United States and Alaska.

When she’s not pounding away at her keyboard or burying her nose in her books and Kindle, she tends a huge vegetable garden and helps Don maintain a sixty-acre farm.

    A wonderful coming of age book with deep and true characters. On

    A wonderful coming of age book with deep and true characters. One rich, one poor, but really which is which? No spoilers, but you will enjoy getting to know these characters through Char's excellent prose. I definitely will be looking for more from her.

    A wonderful novel - highly recommended

    Char Chaffin is my favourite writer, and her novel "Promises to keep" is another highlight of her work as an author and writer. I love the unfolding love story and the beautiful and soul-touching way of using words and how Char captures the heart of her readers. I will recommend this novel to all friends I know, I am sure they will love the story as much as I do. I highly recommend "Promises to keep".
