What he does not want, is to get involved with a gold digger, and guards against that. He is very competitive and accepts challenges at swimming and dancing.
Henry gets very close to two ladies. Both Americans, he proposes to one of them, and the other has a life-threatening problem. Henry has to ask favours of his family and friends, so he can save her life.  They both start their own projects. Annika's starts the building a school in Nicaragua, and Henry starts looking for a world war two airfield, so he can start his own project, the restoration of ww2 aircraft.

He finally gets engaged to this beautiful Swedish lady, but due to a serious problem, the wedding has to be cancelled.

Although it is a fictional story, there is a lot of factual information in this book. The story has many twists and turns, with the ending, setting the reader up for book two of the trilogy.

About the author


James Henry Bragg was born in Coventry, England, which is in the county of Warwickshire. After school, he served an apprenticeship as a fitter and turner, at Armstrong Whitworth Aviation, just outside of Coventry. AWA, as we knew it, built and designed many world war two aircraft, probably the most famous being the Avro Lancaster. This was a four-engine heavy bomber, most famous for the Dam buster raid carried out on the day that James was born. When the factory was closed, because of the British Labour government's decision to purchase C-130's, James emigrated to South Africa. He started work as a fitter at a factory in Port Elizabeth but was not happy. He joined Ingersoll Rand, the compressed air company, where they trained him to become a sales representative. He liked the job and the company, and after many years, he left and set up his own business. He married Lucille and they have two boys, they left South Africa after a serious incident and moved to England. They set up a boating business, but it was not a success and after five years they moved to France. James worked for a Scotsman, who trained him to build and maintain golf courses. James really liked this work. In 1994 he was offered a position to build and maintain the first 9 hole golf course on the island of Crete. He stayed there for eight years and enjoyed the life; he feels Greek mezze is fantastic food. Ten years ago, James retired, and he lives with his wife in a small village outside of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, South East England. He has written his first fiction novel, "The Life of Henry James," it is the first book of a trilogy.
