After two years of searching for her daughter who had been kidnapped by her husband, Joss has given up all hope of ever being reunited with her again. When she goes out one night to begin what she hopes will be a new life, she runs into Caleb who had once been married to her best friend, Gwen. This reminds her of a promise she made; if anything happened to Gwen, Joss would take care of her family.
Caleb lost his adored wife and children in an automobile accident years ago. Caleb masks his pain by indulging in meaningless sex and long work hours. When he meets Joss, he is not prepared for their intense passion or his reaction to Joss and her plight. Immersing himself in Joss' problems may be the remedy Caleb needs. A tip that Joss' daughter may be in Florence, sends Joss and Caleb rushing to Italy. This unexpected trip offers Joss and Caleb adventure, a
passionate affair, and a chance to discover things about themselves they didn't know.
Firefly Promise is a story about two lost and lonely people linked by a promise Joss made long ago. Joss and Caleb might find they have much to bring them together if they would only learn to let go of past memories, accept what life has thrown at them and live in the present. Here we have two persons who had loved and lost and are desperate to learn how to trust someone again, despite all the barriers they find along the way. Could they make this work? This book is suspenseful and would be a perfect choice for those who prefer their romance to be more on the mild side. Deep and emotional.
