Whatâs the harm in a little white lie? Especially when it could carry so much goodâa new life for a wounded soldier, catharsis after long years of war, and an opportunity for lady composer Olivia Delancey to finally hear her music played in public. Newspaper publisher Will Marsh refuses to compound the sins of his fatherâs generation by taking money to print propaganda. But with the end of the wars in France and America, he needs something new to drive Londoners to grab his paper first. Why not publish the score of the âTune That Took Waterloo,â by a wounded vet, no less? As Olivia struggles to keep her secrets from this unsuitably alluring publisher, and Will fights to find the truth without losing his hold on this bright-eyed angel who has descended into his life, both discover another sort of truth. Being the talk of London can be badâor very, very good.

Olivia Delancey could feel the dozen pairs of eyes locking onto her and her fidgety friend Merry as they crossed the threshold into the vaulted space of Ward Four.
