“Then we agree on our pact as blood brothers and what we must do from this day forward?”
“Then it’s sealed in blood,” Jürgen proclaimed as the boys separated their fingers.
“It’s sealed in blood,” confirmed Markus.
In Promises: A Bridge to Somewhere, Greg Carson tells the fictional story of two boys coming of age in pre-World War I Germany. Jürgen Behrmann is a German, and Markus Mendel a Jew. On his deathbed, Markus asks Jürgen to honor their boyhood pact. Jürgen agrees, and keeping his promise brings trouble in war-torn Germany.

Follow their intense World War II saga as Jürgen, Lisbeth, and Didi fight to survive, relying on courage, faith, and grit to sustain them as they encounter the unthinkable.
