A Wartime Marriage
It is 1918 and Captain Harry Phillips is a prisoner of war in a Romanian hospital. When Major Carlsen tells Harry that he can go home his joy is short-lived when he learns that one condition dependant on his freedom is that he must escort the Princess Irena of Moldavia safely to England. In order to convince the authorities she must appear to be his wife, and a private marriage ceremony is arranged. Harry has no taste for this charade, there is a girl back home waiting patiently for his return but Major Carlsen assures him that as soon as they get safely to England he shall be free of this marriage of convenience.
The bulk of the story concentrates on Harry and Irena’s many adventures and narrow escapes before they reach their final destination. After being thrown closely together for many weeks the developing relationship between the two is inevitable, and there is a nice little twist at the end. From the author of the Adams Family sagas this is another entertaining read.
