Promises Made Under Fire | [Charlie Cochrane]

Promises Made Under Fire

Lieutenant Tom Donald envies everything about fellow officer Frank Foden - his confidence, his easy manner with the men in the trenches, the affectionate letters from his wife. Frank shares these letters happily, drawing Tom into a vicarious friendship with a woman he's never met. Although the bonds of friendship forged under fire are strong, Tom can't be so open with Frank - he's attracted to men and could never confess that to anyone.

Publisher's Summary

France, 1915: Lieutenant Tom Donald envies everything about fellow officer Frank Foden - his confidence, his easy manner with the men in the trenches, the affectionate letters from his wife. Frank shares these letters happily, drawing Tom into a vicarious friendship with a woman he's never met. Although the bonds of friendship forged under fire are strong, Tom can't be so open with Frank - he's attracted to men and could never confess that to anyone.

When Frank is killed in no-man's-land, he leaves behind a mysterious request for Tom: to deliver a sealed letter to a man named Palmer. Tom undertakes the commission while on leave - and discovers that almost everything he thought he knew about Frank is a lie....

    "A Great Story..."

    Charlie Cochrane's tale may have been set in WWI but the experience can be applied even to today's lives...at least mine. I related so much with Tom Donald and his experiences of never telling the one that you love...Kevin Stillwell's narration was fantastic and made the characters come to life. A great story...

    "Sweet novella - very good narration"

    This is a sweet romance. The author successfully casts you into the cadence of an epistolary relationship set in the years of World War I. Sufficiently self-contained but leaves you wanting (in a good way) to know more about the characters and their lives.

    "Wonderful Story"

    A review for an audio book is slightly different to a review for a written book, they are the same story but for an audiobook to work, especially if the listener has not read the story first, the narrator has to be able to convey the right tone, inflection and pace for the story to resonate without the listener loosing track of what is going on. The narrator for Promises Under Fire is Kevin Stillwell, and his narration in a slow, dry, English voice is perfect. Even though I could have been doing anything while listening to the story I found myself absorbed in it.
