Deborah Hale's newest, a variation on the Pygmalian story, is pure delight. Lenora Freemantle's wealthy uncle makes her a wager she can't refuse. If, within three months, she can take a common soldier of her uncle's choosing and educate him well enough to pass as a gentleman officer during a Season at Bath, her uncle will finance her dream -- a school for indigent girls. He will also make Lenora the headmistress of the school and take care of her financial needs so that she never need marry. If she loses the wager, however, she must marry the man of her uncle's choosing. She's got her work cut out for her, however, in the intractable Sergeant Morse Archer! These are two very memorable characters. This piece is a little lighter than some of this author's other offerings, but the emotional payoff is there in spades. It won't disappoint!
