This is an anthology containing three different short stories (novellas) about men in arms. Perfect timing with its release being right around Memorial Day. I'll break it down into three parts then give an overall rating to the anthology.
Captain William Duroy has been reprimanded. Caught brawling with his men against some Irish soldiers, he was the highest ranking officer involved and so the blame for the incident had fallen upon his shoulders. Now he's been asked to escort, Pippa Nelson, aka Bookworm Pippa, to Lisbon. With the French nearing, it wouldn't be long before a battle would ensue between the French and British. William had been hoping the battle would lead to his advancement in the service, but now it appeared he wouldn't get the chance.
Pippa Nelson is her father's only child. Sir Hew, her father, dotes on her and takes her with him whenever he can. On his latest mission he needed to leave her behind and left her in Colonel Medford's capable hands. With an imminent battle only days away, Colonel Medford had decided it would be safest for Ms. Nelson to go back to England. The only problem with that is that Pippa hasn't ever really lived in England and doesn't really consider it home. When Captain Duroy comes to escort her he insists they leave her precious book collection behind. That doesn't sit well with her. If he'd known her better, he'd have been more wary of her compliance and would not have insisted she leave them behind. That small decision will lead to a grand adventure which will change both their paths.
