Within three months Lipik had been destroyed, the people killed or driven from their homes, and the orphans evacuated under fire to another part of Croatia. Colonel Mark Cook, sent out to command the British contingent of the UN Protection Force in Croatia, had no idea of the emotional impact the scenes of devastation would have on him. 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".
