Unfortunately, Sharpe discovers that multiple French battalions are on their way to capture the village in order to occupy South Portugal.
Sharpe decides to make a stand and blackmails Lord Farthingdale into leaving the village, thus making Sharpe the commanding officer. He ingeniously defends the village by setting a trap for the French, using Congreve rockets to destroy a battalion, mining a building, and generally anticipating his enemies' moves.
His wife, a Spanish partisan commander Teresa Moreno , rides to fetch reinforcements who arrive just in time to assist the tiring men. Hakeswill, who was kept as a prisoner, escapes during the last hours of the fight and kills Teresa. Hakeswill tries to desert to the French, but falls in the hands of Dubreton who returns him to Sharpe as a thank you for rescuing the Colonel's wife.
After a court martial , Hakeswill is shot by a firing squad and the coup de grace is administered by Sharpe himself. She was last seen in Sharpe's Gold where she had set up house in Lisbon entertaining wealthy allied officers.
It transpires that she is not actually entitled to be called Lady Farthingdale, she has never married Colonel Sir Augustus Farthingdale, but is merely pretending to be his wife in exchange for his maintaining her in a life of luxury.
The convent in Adrados was set up to commemorate the piety of this event. She said "withering in my bloom, lost in [a convent's] solitary gloom.
After the addition of many more novels to the successful series it resides about two thirds of the way through the series and Sharpe's military career. Television adaptation[ edit ] The novel was adapted for the second season of the Sharpe television series.
The adaptation kept the basic plot of the novel but many details were changed, notably the character of Josefina was not reused and was replaced with a new character, Isabella played by Elizabeth Hurley , the wife of Sir Augustus and an old flame of Sharpe, with whom he has a sexual encounter while rescuing her.
In the novels, Isabella is the name of Harper's wife; the television adaptation instead gives him a girlfriend named Ramona.
