Are you ready to be taken on a journey of love, life and heartbreak with Katie Flynn’s A Rose and a Promise?


Words by Hannah Ballantyne

The final edition of Katie Flynn’s heartfelt historical romance series, A Rose and A Promise, arrives this February. Though they may be posted miles apart, Cadi and her husband Jez’s love for one another is stronger than ever - until Cadi receives a heart-breaking call from Jez’s base. Cadi races to be with her beau and at his bedside, they make each other a promise that Cadi hopes she’ll never have to keep. In her darkest hour, Cadi is comforted by her friends, and with their support and guidance she begins to see a light at the end of the tunnel. But she will face more than one unexpected turn along the way.

In the first two novels of the trilogy, The Rose Queen and The Winter Rose, we’ve rooted for Cadi through all the ups and downs of her life. We’ve held our breath as threats arose and smiled as she found happiness too. Along the way, she’s encountere­d love interests and friends – ones that readers haven’t been able to help falling for either. Now it’s time to check in with all your favourite characters and discover how the story ends, as you enjoy the final chapter of Cadi’s journey.


Katie Flynn is the author of 47 bestsellin­g novels which have sold over 5 million copies.

Her first book, A Liverpool Lass, was published in 1993. Katie Flynn was the pseudonym of the author Judy Turner, who was inspired to write novels after hearing family recollecti­ons of life in Liverpool during the early twentieth century. Judy sadly passed away in January 2019 at the age of 82. Her daughter Holly worked as her assistant for many years and together they co-authored a number of Katie Flynn novels, including Christmas at Tuppenny Corner.

The Katie Flynn legacy now lives on through Holly who writes new books, often based on ideas she discussed with her mother. Holly lives in the north-east of Wales with her husband Simon and their two children. When she’s not writing she enjoys walking her two lurchers, Sparky and Snoopy, in the surroundin­g countrysid­e, and cooking forbidden foods such as pies, cakes, and puddings! She looks forward to sharing many more Katie Flynn stories with readers in the years to come.
