pubOne.info present you this new edition. Inasmuch as the scene of this story is that historic pile, Belpher Castle, in the county of Hampshire, it would be an agreeable task to open it with a leisurely description of the place, followed by some notes on the history of the Earls of Marshmoreton, who have owned it since the fifteenth century. Unfortunately, in these days of rush and hurry, a novelist works at a disadvantage. He must leap into the middle of his tale with as little delay as he would employ in

In fact, I've picked up a dozen more free books by the author. It is a delightful tale, wittily written. If you like BBC, you will like this, too.

Chilvary from the days of old as our hero discreetly attempts to save his lady love from possible scandal and allow them to become betrothed. A warm story set in the early days of the 20th century seems far more distant that it actually is; can it be civilization has changed so quickly in such a short time? If for no other reason pick up the book and decide for yourself. The story is easy to follow even for modern readers and it will entertain, educate and give you glimpse into a genteel past you may be totally unaware of. What are the obstacles and how are they overcome? They seem unsurmountable due to the society of the time, but our hero is resourceful and determined. Definitely a good read.

This will be the next book I'll read. Vaguely familiar with the author, and the plot sounds throughly entertaining. Sigh, I'm such a bore.

A delightful romp. Who loves whom, and who will win the damsel? Better known for his "Jeeves" whodunnits, Wodehouse can also play with romantic comedy.

This book looks like someone scanned the words into a computer program and never checked to make sure actual words were being copied. Very hard to read!

You must have to be British to enjoy this. The typeos a so bad it makes reading hard. Read 18 pages and gave up. I could not find any humor. Just a bunch of gibberish.
