Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This farcical 1975 novel pits the good-hearted Lady Maude against the diabolical Sir Giles, who plans to ruin the local countryside by constructing a highway that will serve little purpose other than lining his pockets. The fight against bureaucracy makes for deft comedy. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
