Another lovely twisty romance in classic Wodehouse style. ( )
  OldDani | Feb 17, 2009 |
It has a couple aspects that are very unusual for Wodehouse. The villain only appears in the final few pages and she does not get her comeuppance. As well, when the hero and heroine finally have all obstacles to their love swept away, Wodehouse ends the book just before their re-uniting. Very out of the ordinary for him. Good book, though. ( )

It was a glorious morning of blue and gold, of fleecy clouds and insects droning in the sunshine.

Book description
Overlook Press blurb:
Sir Buckstone Abbott owns what is possibly the ugliest stately home in England, and he is naturally eager to dispose of it to an American heiress, Princess Dwornitzchek. But the sale is complicated by the Princess's engagement to Adrian Peake, who is being pursued by Sir Buckstone's daughter, Jane, who is loved by Joe Vanringham. In the end, almost everyone gets what they want, even Prudence Whittaker, Sir Buckstone's awfully well-spoken secretary.

The hideous Walsingford Hall is home to an odd assortment of coves and an even odder assortment of people. The vile premises belong to Sir Buckstone, who is in a little financial difficulty. So for a little monetary help, he puts a roof over the heads of a group of lunatics. Is there no end to the confusion?

The vile premises belong to Sir Buckstone, who is in a little financial difficulty. So for a little monetary help he puts a roof over the heads of people like (among others) Tubby Vanringham, the adoring slave of cold-hearted Miss Whittaker. His brother Joe has fallen head over heels for Sir Buck's daughter Jane. She, however, only has eyes for Adrian Peake who has already formed a liaison with the terrifying - but superbly wealthy - Princess Dwornitzchek. Is there no end to the confusion? Risible look at Britain's landed gentry in a comic but Byzantine plotline.… (more)
