The Promise

In the trenches of the Western Front during World War I, a soldier said to his dying mate, “I’ll look after the missus and kids.” This became known as The Promise – and it is still kept today.
The Promise is such an important story. Beautifully written, it brings history to life.” 
Melissa Doyle AM – author of 15 Seconds of Brave
“Redenbach’s novella reaches back through the battles of the mind and the heart, with timeless advice on how to grapple with the mess, pain and uncertainty of life. I love it.”
Mark Wales – Ex-Special Ops Commander & Australian ‘Survivor’ Winner
