"It is remarkable that a woman should write one of the clearest and most balanced accounts of the hundred days which culminated in the Battle of Waterloo . . . A brilliant achievement." - The Daily Mail.
"In the summer of 1815, with Napoleon Bonaparte marching down from the north, Brussels is a whirlwind of parties, balls and soirees. In the swirling social scene surrounding the Duke of Wellington and his noble aides de camp, no one attracts more attention than the beautiful, outrageous young widow Lady Barbara Childe. On their first meeting, dashing Colonel Charles Audley proposes to her, but even their betrothal doesn't calm her wild behavior. Finally, with the Battle of Waterloo raging just miles away, civilians fleeing and the wounded pouring back into the town, Lady Barbara discovers where her heart really lies, and like a true noblewomanm, she rises to the occasion, and to the demands of love, life and war . . . "
