About the Author

Charles Morgan was an English-born playwright and novelist. On the outbreak of war he rejoined the navy but was sent with Churchill’s Naval Division to the defence of Antwerp. He was interned in Holland which provided the setting for his bestselling novel The Fountain.
His first play, The Flashing Stream, had successful runs in London and Paris. The River Line was originally written as a novel in 1949 and concerned the activities of escaped British prisoners of war in France during World War II.
