Excerpt

room A. Sands, who had knocked to tell her that she had better come out, was waiting to guard her for the last time. Neither had much to say. The hope of haven had not raised the girl's spirits. As Sands gave her a hand, stepping on to the platform, he saw Justin O'Reilly, already out of the train and looking about with the air of expecting someone.

This is something a little different from the Williamsons. Usually their books are light and frothy confections, but this one has very little lightness about it. It is a fast-paced and somewhat suspenseful tale of a beautiful woman who enlists the help of a stranger on a train, marries him (she, of course, fell in love with him instantly as he did with her) and tries like crazy to keep her "matter of life and death" secret from him with the help of a young friend. It keeps you going right to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great escapism.
