Michael Walsh By ZonderZorg Completed

Early in World War One, a young Canadian soldier is wounded and trapped behind German lines. He uses quick thinking and ingenuity to evade capture, then deeper into enemy territory, he meets a young woman who recently lost her father and brothers to the war. She takes him home to meet her mother, hoping he can help them escape back to their family roots in Switzerland. As they flee over the mountains, love blossoms and stirs old traumas. He's torn between following his heart and honouring his sworn duty.

Well, put Sir. My next story in crime!LOL! I just needed to say that.  I look forward to reading this as I enjoy war stories from time to time. The military is in my family's blood as well.

If I  remember my world history well enough, I  believe the war started in Austria due to an assassination of some sort. So I assume this is the setting. History class for me was so long ago, but I recall some episodes!🙂
