Summary (From the publisher):

After his sort-of-girlfriend dies, teen-aged Bob is shocked to discover that their love was stronger than he thought, even strong enough to transcend death.

: Valerie was beautiful, with her long red hair and pale, pale face. Bob found it easy to promise -- that he'd come and find her if she ever got lost. A boy in love will do anything he's asked. It seemed such a little thing at the time.

But he'd underestimated Valerie. Used to having her own way in life, she was no different in death. She still wanted Bob, pulled him ever closer to the brink. While the bombs of World War II rained down, Bob faced Valerie in a final test of will -- with his own life at stake.
