Juliet's first fiancé. They were going to get married in 1942 but while Rob was moving his things into Juliet's apartment, she realized she didn't want to marry him: he tried to box up all of her books and instead fill her shelves with sports trophies, ribbons, and memorabilia. They called off their engagement immediately. Despite this, Juliet says that Rob was a very good and honest man; they just weren't right for each other. He died three months later in the war. In the present, Gilly Gilbert attempts to spread rumors about Juliet by dragging up her engagement to Rob and speaking ill of both of them.
