Ther is also the extraordinary story of Juanita Smith, a young Spanish who was rescued by Captain Harry Smith from the pillage of Badajoz, married him on the spot and went all over the world with him.
A fact that Bernard Cornwell failed to exploit in Sharpe's Company,
much to my disappointment! However, it has given us a few other things to think about!I have often wondered what Jane Austen thought about Juana Smith- any one have any ideas?
The link below is to the official Sharpe site, which gets better every time I look at it.
And I'm going to leave The Spanish Bride by Georgette Heyer for Carolyn to wax excstatic over, as I know it's one of her favourites..
