The Promise is a fictional account of a Canadian soldier involved in the Battle of the Somme in 1916. It includes a love story and a strong subplot of his problems with his commanding officer

ISBN 0-9648384-4-X

Full of enthusiasm and patriotism generated by the Great War, young Paul Cunningham enlists in the Canadian Army the day after his 19th birthday. His parents, of a well-to-do Toronto family, are vehemently opposed to his joining, but cannot stop their determined son’s call to duty.
With great passion and fanfare, Paul marches off to war and straight into the man-made hell on Earth known historically as the Battle of the Somme. A battle so horrendous, that it consumed a whole generation of young men from both the British and German empires during the summer and autumn of 1916.
As Paul struggles to cope with the horrors of war, he must also deal with a difficult commanding officer culminating in a showdown that threatens to be his ultimate undoing. Away from the madness of the front, two women, his beloved sister, Ginny, back in Toronto and his sweetheart, Chelsea, in England, wait anxiously for him. To both, he has promised to return.
The Promise, is searing portrayal of the folly of war, blending the trepidation of war with the tenderness of love. The reader is treated to a mixture of the horrific life in the trenches, a tender love story, and the early years of Ginny.
