A lovely unread copy with faint edgewear.; There is a new Vicar at Southbridge and Mr. Birkett retires as Headmaster of Southbridge School somewhat reluctantly. The residents of Barsetshire, having dealt with the horrors of war, now must deal with the horrors of peace. "All the talk in 1947 is of rations and privation —until the pretty war widow Peggy Arbuthnot and her sister-in-law arrive, creating quite a stir among the bachelors and matchmakers of Barsetshire society. Hopes will be nursed, hearts will be broken, and silly behavior will be pointed out for being exactly what it is in this delightful comedy of manners."
