Nor did he anticipate meeting and falling in love with the beautiful, troubled young doctor of Lipik, Marina Topic. When Marina was rushed into hospital and told she could die within months, her one wish was to see the ruined orphanage rebuilt to its former glory. Colonel Cook made a promise to her and the children. But he found himself agonizingly torn between his life in Croatia, and his understanding, loving wife and their sons in Britain..”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Martin Bell. Size: 9½" x 6¼".
