Unforgettable Island Promise is a historical romantic novel that takes place in the late 1930s at Jekyll Island. A Clubhouse was constructed in the late 1800s by members that purchase the land as a getaway from the northern winds. Once the Clubhouse was outgrown, some members decided to build private cottages that were more like a small mansion to escape the pressures of life stresses. Some of the island workers inhabited the island year round. Jonathan Blake had been coming to the island since he was a child to spend time with his grandparents who were island workers. For him, the place served as a sanctuary away from the cares of the world. One day down at the beach, he spied a young lady wading along the oceanfront collecting seashells. He had not spoken to her, but his imagination ran wild causing him to eagerly acquaint himself with her before his thoughts became untamed. Jonathan had vowed never to love a woman. He preferred to keep his distance until one day he casually approached Jane Adams. Remembering her face kept his emotions running wild. Distancing was not the answer. Deep inside, he was convinced of his true need of her. Something magical was happening amid the Southern Live Oak trees. This fictional story is a blend of romance and reflection. Echoes of the past can be heard from the liveliness of the Red Bug Races, Horseback Riding, Hunting, and Croquet. The panorama of the sunset now held a purpose. Once World War II came on, life at the island had changed forever. Now, only silence was heard. The island had held many wonderful memories of fun time experiences. Would their past experiences on the island ever return to a normalcy with the sound of laughter being heard? Would Jonathan be able to keep his island promise spoken or would he refuse to love and be loved?
