During the Second World War, she worked for The Canadian Army Medical Records and married Hugo de Schanschieff, a gunner in he RAF. She also began writing and preparing scripts for film companies.

Clean, tight copy in a superior dj with light foxing on some pages. Interesting subject touching on Jesuit influences on Shakespeare.
