Overview

Excerpt:

The girl stared at him.

That Anthony did not appreciate why she had remained upon the landing was to her incredible.

"I 'eard," she said loftily.

Anthony felt crushed.

At his suggestion she let him out of the front door.

"See yer to-morrow," she cried.

"That's right, miss."

Anthony passed down the steps and walked quickly away. Before he had covered a hundred paces, he stopped and turned up his trousers. The sartorial forfeit to respectability had served its turn.

When Mr. Hopkins, the butler, returned a little unsteadily at a quarter to ten to learn that his mistress had engaged a "proper toff" as his footman, he was profoundly moved.

This was a rather silly but enjoyable book. My only criticism is that it ends with a cliff hanger and the sequel is not available thru my Nook. The whole plot would unravel if the two characters in love ever asked each other a question. I guess the path to true love must go through a swamp of misunderstanding. As I said, it is quite silly. I enjoyed the nature writing. It was a pleasant way to spend an evening when I didn't have much energy for anything else. I rated it very good because it was good at what it was. It is not great literature.
