Notes & Reviews:
When Brigade-Major Harry Smith met beautiful Juana María, an instant spark formed between the two fiery, energetic souls. The two fell deeply in love with one another from the first moment and the Spanish bride accompanied him throughout all his campaigns, where she rode freely among the troops. The intensity of their marriage is made all the more gripping as it is played out against the Peninsular War of Napoleon versus Wellington. The Spanish Bride is both an endearing true love story and a detailed account of Wellington's battles and strategies, which Georgette Heyer studied intensely for this unforgettable novel. David Collins started his audio career by winning the BBC’s coveted Carleton Hobbs Award. Since then he has featured in many BBC Radio 4 plays and documentaries. The Spanish Bride is his first recording for Naxos AudioBooks.
