Launch of The Prussian Captain.
Based on a true story, spanning half a century, this sweeping tale takes the reader from upper-class English society, to New York, Boston, and the wilds of the Napa Valley. But Edward’s love comes from the most unlikely places—the poverty-stricken streets of Neck End.
Upon returning to England, after not “making good” in America, Edward meets Gertrude and his hope for the future is transformed. But there’s a big problem—he’s already married. In a time when the rich and the poor of England each had their own firmly defined limits, scandal could ruin everything. Will they take the risk?
The Prussian Captain is Ann Brough’s debut novel. She lives in Lester Beach, Manitoba, with her husband David. Her home is filled with family, laughter, and lots of love and sand every summer. She was born in Staffordshire, UK in 1944 and first immigrated to Winnipeg in 1967.
