Detailed Plot Synopsis of Major Wyclyffe's Campaign

    For five years, Lady Sophia visited the wounded men at the hospital to provide some solace. Many of the injured would propose marriage, but Sophia always found a way to vaguely consider their offer, while encouraging them to recover; though some never did. She regularly visits Major Anthony Wycliff who appears near death, but she manages to obtain a vow that if she marries him he will recover.

    Unable to deal with the nonsense of the Ton or the dying any longer, Sophia flees London to spend time with her aunt. Meanwhile, Anthony, though still limping, defies the medical prognosis and miraculously begins to recover. Anthony has something to live for and he has obtained a special license to marry Sophia in that regard. When Anthony catches up to Sophia, he realizes she was only encouraging him to live. She believes he does not love her, but only feels gratitude. Now he has a new campaign to prove that he loves Sophia who has her own strategy to turn away her suitor.

    Katherine Greyle deftly deals with the seriousness of the wounded during the Napoleonic Wars, yet turns MAJOR WYCLIFF'S CAMPAIGN into a historical romantic romp. The story line centers on a war between the genders that seems as if the author moved a 1930s screwball comedy into the Regency era. Because the characters seem real yet eccentric, fans receive an amusing treat.
