A PROMISE TO KEEP
"After the war, I shall return. Let's get married then." Collin, a member of an aristocratic family, and Rose, an innkeeper's daughter, promise to marry each other despite the differences in their social status. However, in the midst of the Napoleonic Wars in a combat zone, Collin receives a letter from Rose one-sidedly breaking off the engagement. Collin returns home unconvinced, but when he goes searching for Rose, he hears that she has gone missing. When he finally locates Rose, he finds her working as a housekeeper for an elderly noblewoman at her manor. But Rose acts as if Collin is a total stranger when he expresses his unwavering love toward her.

This manga was okay. However, the lead female was very selfish. She decided all on her own, after only thinking about her own situation and not his feelings what so ever, that it would be a good idea for her to tell the male lead, who is in the middle of a battle for his life and country, that she was reneging on her promise to marry him. She gave him no reasons what so ever in her letter. He was lucky he was a even tempered man cause if he let his feelings distract him he could have ended up dead. Because of the fact that she gave no reasons, he of course tracked her down as any normal person in love would. She was so irrational, that she wrote a letter to his parents when he showed up where she was working, telling them that they need to come and bring the male lead back to his senses because she was a thief, poor and unworthy of him... she seemed to be obsessed with suffering. She wanted it so badly, but eventually he and his parents talked her into not forcing him to suffer along with her and to be happy. Other than her though, I did like the old lady who owned the manor, she had understandable not self inflicted trauma to work though and she does so though out the story creating more depth to an other wise not so great story. Overall, I'd say although I was not a big fan of the story, the art was good and most of my issues with it were personal so I could see other people liking it much more than I did.
