When young Lord Chester has to go on a special diplomatic mission to Berlin he decides to move his pretty young bride of six months to the London suburb of Dullham. How will Blanche (in an interesting state of health) learn to love her "semi-detachment" (the occupants of the other half of her villa)?

This edition has wonderful illustrations by Susanne Suba. The Honorable Emily Eden (1797-1869), a 19th century aristocrat, "satirised the social world she knew, loved and laughed at. A true, if minor successor to Jane Austen, like her she is concerned with love and marriage, money and manners. But Emily Eden has a distinct voice and it is the charm and humour-both above and below stairs- and sharp social comment which so magically entertain..."; Decorated cloth binding beginning to fray at spine tail, corners and spine ends lightly bumped, top edge lightly soiled. Pastedowns, endpapers, and yellowed page edges lightly foxed; a few page margins soiled, not on text. Unclipped dust wrapper, with sunned spine, age browned and edgeworn with several chips and tears. A few tears repaired with tape on reverse by previous owner. Three inch portion of front panel bottom corner missing. ; The Desperate Reader reviewed and recommended this title on her blog. Also reviewed and given three stars on "The Fig and Thistle" blog. Image is actual copy on offer.
