Previous owner bookplate on front pastedown, page edges lightly yellowed and smudged; interior pages clean. Only spine, front panel, and front flap of edgeworn and torn dust wrapper present.; In this charming 1951 novel, Grace Allingham tries to understand the behavior of Charles-Edouard, her wealthy and dashing French husband. Her newly acquired aristocratic world isn't quite as blissful as she thought it would be, as she contends with former and current mistresses. There is the possibility of divorce and the possibility of Grace infatuated or in love with others. This is a very funny, ever-so-satiric novel. Our anglophile fans will enjoy the rising triumph of a young Englishwoman conquering the French. Basis for the 1959 film "Count Your Blessings" starring Deborah Kerr and Rossano Brazzi.
