"If, two years ago, when I was sixteen, I hadn’t wanted money to buy a white frock with roses on it, which I saw in Selfridge’s window, a secret crisis between the United States and Mexico would have been avoided; and the career of a splendid soldier would not have been broken.” Read here what happened to the girl, the soldier, and the white frock. - Summary by Carolin (10 hr 50 min)

Reviews


(4 stars)

Great wartime story, mostly focusing on side issues rather than fighting: dysfunctional family, wartime sacrifices and sham sacrifices, a dastardly deed done to a soldier to gain an advantage in love, and a young woman trying to uncover the stolen honor of her secret love and wreak revenge on the perpetrator.


(5 stars)

It seems the story ended in 1915, with three years of slaughter ahead and the male protagonist at the front ...... I like that yank lieutenant's chances.

Great story


(5 stars)
