The Toll-Gate

1992 reprint

Fairly good protected dustwrapper which is creased and worn at edges.  Ex library with usual stamps etc.

Captain John Staple's exploits against Napoleon's armies in the Iberian Peninsula have earned him the nickname 'Crazy Jack' amongst his comrades in the Dragoon Guards - but once the Battle of Waterloo brings the curtain down once and for all on the Napoleonic Wars, the boisterous, adventure-loving Captain finds life in peacetime intolerably dull.

When the Captain finds himself lost in the Pennines, he takes refuge at an unmanned toll-house. It's there that he encounters a woman of extraordinary qualities - and suddenly, his soldiering days pale away next to the adventure, and the romance, of a lifetime...
