Another moving tale by Barbara Metzger. Some supernatural elements for a twist on the typical romance.
Genie, widowed, friendless, penniless, is at the end of the road, in Belgium after the Battle of Waterloo, but then she meeets
Sir Coryn of Ardsley, former minion for St. Nick, given six months to redeem himself. He sees Genie as a way to show his change of heart.
Assorted dastardly relatives, not-so-minor complications, but Coryn and his ladylove manage to find true love despite the long odds against them.
