Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0552139513, Paperback)

Everyone liked Sergeant Joe, and quite a few people wondered why he wasn't yet married. When he bumped into Dolly Smith, he finally met a girl who made an impression on him. Dolly was quick and lively, but also a little frightened—running from a sinister foreigner who seemed to think she had stolen something valuable. When Joe took Dolly under his wing, he thought he was just helping her in a momentary predicament. He didn't realize his peaceful existence was going to be changed forever.
