Description

“The way to get on as a lady is the same as the way to get on as a servant: you’ve got to know your place; that’s the secret of it.”

A soldier on the run climbs into Raina’s bedroom. She shelters him, but then discovers that, unlike the heroic officer to whom she is engaged, he despises war and carries not ammunition, but chocolate. When the ‘chocolate cream soldier’ reappears after the war, the consequences for Raina and her family are unexpected and amusing.
