Married to an inveterate gambler who is prepared to dispose of her life in order to pay his debts, Louise Oakingham flees, only to find herself torn between a husband she despises and a man she doubts. Is Captain Paul Fourier, on leave from the Peninsular campaign, her jailor or her saviour? It is ironic that the safest place for Louise is in the middle of a war, and in deciding to throw in her lot with the enigmatic captain, she begins to understand why women follow their men into battle.
