The Prussian Captain
Finding love in the most unlikely place, Edward’s secret longing is finally realized.
Edward turned twenty nine-years-old on the ship. Looking out over the grey water back towards America, his heart ached for both the country he had adopted and loved, and for the woman he had lost there.
He was returning to England without having ‘made good’. Without fortune. Without wife and family.
Based on a true story, spanning half a century, follow the lives of two very different people from opposite backgrounds. What happens when a middle-aged, wealthy aristocrat meets a young impoverished girl? In an era of strict class and social boundaries, when the rich and the poor of England each had their own firm, clearly defined limits, scandal could ruin the lives of not only the people involved, but reach into families and communities.
When Edward meets Gertrude, his hope for the future is suddenly transformed. But there’s a big problem—he’s already married. Will they risk the scandal? Will they both find what they are looking for?
