Josh Gershwin is a typical middle class senior at Thomas Jefferson high school in Richmond Virginia in 1964... well almost typical. Like many seniors he is juggling his studies and preparing for college when Penny suddenly enters the picture and unknowingly captures his heart. But as she prepares to fulfill her dream to become the first college educated female in her family, she is convinced she has no time for romance. As a determined Josh attempts to win her over, he finds himself in the middle of some mysterious, vexing and sometimes traumatic flash backs to a rebellious and dangerous time in the nation's history, the war between the north and the south. At the heart of it all is a mysterious promise that emerges out of the past from a grateful comrade that only unveils itself to Josh over time. The Unlikely Promise is a sometimes humorous sometimes harrowing story of two young people whose lives become entwined. Whether you are an adolescent, a young adult or a baby boomer this book will appeal to you. It is a contemporary story with romance, humor and exciting scenes from our history and a mysterious thread that links the past to the present.
