P.C. Wren is best known for his work Beau Geste. This story involves a woman, who thought herself a widow because her husband was officially declared dead, remarrying only to meet her 'dead' husband alive many years later. The invention of a fictional South-American country called Boruela, and its wicked dictator, only add to a strange plot.
