Lady Maud, the spirited young daughter of the Earl of Marshmoreton, is conf ined to her home, Belpher Castle in Hampshire, under aunt's orders because of an unfortunate infatuation. Enter our hero, George Bevan, an American wh o writes songs for musicals and is so smitten with Maud that he descends on Hampshire's rolling acres to see off his rival and claim her heart. Meanwh ile, in the great Wodehousian tradition, the Earl of Marshmoreton just want s a quiet life pottering in his garden, supported by his portly butler Kegg s and free from the demands of his bossy sister and his silly-ass son. It is a sunny story which involves misunderstandings, butlers and gentle hearts torn asunder only to be reunited at last. This delightful novel which was twice filmed (once as a musical starring Fred Astaire) has all the wit and lightness of touch that we expect from the great comic writer.
