A Promise Fulfilled


    This title is from an ever-popular library author. It's England, 1926. Sixteen-year-old orphan Jackie Hunt knows what she wants - to marry Wilhelm Furtmueller, to whom she has promised to be forever faithful, and to be an artist. Her second dream is already coming true, but Jackie is to be parted from Wilhelm, whose family is going back to his native Germany. She has no doubt he will return to her, but just four years later, Jackie's dreams are in ruins. All hopes of art school are dashed, and her perfect romance seems lost forever. Jackie finds a post as companion to Richard Bennett's blind mother, Verity, on her Gloucestershire farm, and she quickly grows to love her. But life on the farm is not as idyllic as it at first appeared. Verity's husband acts strangely, and Jackie begins to suspect that he is not as faithful and loving as he seems. Taciturn Richard has fallen for her, but while Jackie feels affection for him, she cannot forget the all-consuming love she felt for Wilhelm.
