The Prussian Captain
About this Item
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?
