Publisher's Summary

A sparkling romantic comedy that vividly evokes the lost glamour of aristocratic life in England between the wars.

Polly Hampton has long been groomed for the perfect marriage by her mother, the fearsome and ambitious Lady Montdore. But Polly, with her stunning good looks and impeccable connections, is bored by the monotony of her glittering debut season in London. Having just come from India, where her father served as viceroy, she claims to have hoped that society in a colder climate would be less obsessed with love affairs.

The apparently aloof and indifferent Polly has a long-held secret, however, one that leads to the shattering of her mother's dreams and her own disinheritance. When an elderly duke begins pursuing the disgraced Polly and a callow potential heir curries favor with her parents, nothing goes as expected, but in the end, all find happiness in their own unconventional ways.

terrible audio

I've read the print book and liked it. It was impossible to listen to this performance. The volume was incredibly in consistent. The voice of the narrator in main voice was very low with an affected whisper and slight lisp. The other characters were very loud and brassy. I couldn't keep the volume at a tolerable mid level.

Horrifying reader

I can honestly say I have never heard anything like this. The reader whispers the entire book. It’s the most bizarre performance decision. It’s utterly intolerable. This is a wonderful book by wonderful author read by a wretched reader. It’s particularly tragic because the prior novel is so beautifully read. Someone needs to re-issue this.
