Set under the gathering storm that is the Second World War in Romania, "The Great Fortune" is the first action-packed, romantic and fascinating book of "The Balkan Trilogy". Guy and Harriet Pringle marry after a six month courtship. Still getting to know each other, they arrive in Bucharest, where Guy is employed in the English Department of the University of Bucharest. Over the following years Guy builds an eclectic network of friends and acquaintances. These charismatic contacts include his work colleague Clarence, his boss Lord Inchcape, the eccentric Prince Yakimov and Sophie, a local Romanian beauty. Harriet appears tough, but is also vulnerable and lonely, nuances that Guy often misses as he plunges wholeheartedly into one project after another. Reader, Emilia Fox is a versatile and charismatic actress who has enjoyed popular stage and screen success both in the UK and in the USA.

From the Inside Flap:

Guy and Harriet Pringle, newly married, arrive in Bucharest in the autumn of 1939. The city they find is one of contrasts and rumours, on the edge with wavering loyalties and the tension of war, peopled with an international cast of characters, including the inimitable and eccentric Russian émigré Prince Yakimov.

From the Back Cover:

"Manning has a marvelously sharp eye for place, time and occasion--her characterisation is masterly." - Queen
