In The Great Fortune, the first installation in the six-volume Fortunes of War, series, Guy and Harriet Pringle marry after a brief courtship. Still getting to know each other, they arrive in Bucharest, where Guy works as a lecturer for the British Council and builds an eclectic network of friends and acquaintances. These charismatic contacts include his work colleague Clarence, his boss Lord Inchcape, the eccentric Prince Yakimov, and Sophie, a local Romanian beauty. While he knows and loves everyone, she knows no one and starts to wonder whether she really knows Guy either. Set in Romania under the gathering storm of the second World War, The Great Fortune is action-packed, romantic, and fascinating.
