Enhance your purchase
Early in World War One, a young Canadian soldier is wounded and trapped behind German lines. He uses quick thinking and ingenuity to evade capture, then deeper into enemy territory, he meets a young woman who recently lost her father and brothers to the war. She takes him home to meet her mother, hoping he can help them escape back to their family roots in Switzerland. As they flee over the mountains, love blossoms and stirs old traumas. He's torn between following his heart and honouring his sworn duty.
This is a war story, but instead of being mired in blood and guts, it examines deeper issues of the human condition.

From the Author
The envelope images on the cover are taken from my personal collection and they inspired this story. I did some Photoshop manipulation to alter the soldier's name, initials and regimental number. He was posted as missing, but after evading for a while, he was captured and spent the remainder of the war as a prisoner. My story paints what might have happened had his evasion been successful.
Introduction and Content Warning
Although this is a piece of fiction, most of the geography and history in it are real. Many of the details and adventures in the Schwarzwald are based on my experiences there half a century later while serving with NATO in the 1960s. I began my research on this series of novels while sharing drinks with Ypres veterans in the Officers Mess of the British Columbia Regiment shortly after I retired in 1981.
This story contains scenes of a young woman's awakening sexuality as she meets a young man who has not yet realised the trauma from his sexual abuse as an adolescent. There are depictions of physical and sexual intimacy that are necessary to the telling of the story.
About the Author
The past few years he's lived aboard Zonder Zorg, a restored 1908 Friesian skûtsje, as he explores the European canals trying to sort out what to do when he grows up. Meanwhile, he's gone back to writing, and after four nonfiction books on boating, he's turned to fiction.
