Description
"Elizabeth Miles finds herself in a position no scheme can help her escape: Her beloved fiancé, Gideon Bates, is awaiting his turn in the draft to fight in the Great War. Elizabeth is finds it hard to think of anything else, but Gideon has thrown himself into his work, preparing wills for soldiers before they ship out. As part owner of the company that makes footwear for the army, Corporal Tom Preston has a rather large estate. He needs a new will, however, because he has just been secretly married Rose, a woman whom his family would never approve. He wants to make sure she and their unborn child are provided for if he does not return. When Tom is later reported killed, Elizabeth and Gideon learn that after Tom's bride revealed her identity to his family, the new will went missing. Unless it is found and validated, the original will--which leaves everything to Tom's brother--will prevail and the wife and child will get nothing. If she even survives. Some terrible threats have been leveled against her, and Elizabeth and Gideon must figure out a way, legal or not quite, to secure Tom's fortune for his wife and child while saving her life in the process." --book jacket
