Somewhere in France

Richard Harding Davis

Book Overview: 

When Captain Henri Ravignac married Marie Gessler, he was mistakenly thinking she was French. But Marie is in fact German, and her command of the French language and culture makes her a perfect spy.

Travelling with the documents of Countess d'Aurillac, she moves behind enemy lines, but the life of a spy is typically turbulent and short.
