ter. This was more than four years ago, and nothing has since been heard of him; he has never written to his daughter, and she does not even know the name of the vessel in which he sailed from Germany. Shortly before his departure he declared that he would either return as a wealthy man or not at all.

I found an 1879 first (English)edition of this book many years ago and it instantly became one of my favorite books.

Taking place in the time of the Franco-Prussian war it is a romance, a war story, and a mirror on the idealized social concepts of the time.

A bit wordy, but that is to be expected from a book of this time period. I highly recommend it.
