A new book received with faint edgwear and a few smudges on back cover.; Originally published in 1944 this novel is set just before the beginning of WWII. Cluny Brown refuses to know her place in society. Last week, she took herself to tea at the Ritz. Then she spent almost an entire day in bed eating oranges. So, to teach her discipline, her uncle, a plumber who has raised the orphaned girl since she was a baby, sends her into service as a parlor maid at one of England's stately manor houses...and the fun begins.

At Friars Carmel in Devonshire, Cluny meets her employers: Sir Henry, the quintessential country squire, and Lady Carmel, who oversees the management of her home with unruffled calm. Their son, Andrew, newly returned from abroad with a Polish émigré writer friend, is certain the country is once again on the brink of war.

While everyone around her struggles to keep pace with a rapidly changing world, Cluny continues to be Cluny, transforming those around her with her infectious zest for life. Basis for film starring Charles Boyer, Jennifer Jones and Peter Lawford. Recommended.; Recommended by Rebecca C., owner of the Margery Sharp website and member of the AT email discussion list. 'Think of 'Cluny Brown' as Margery Sharp 101. There's no better place to begin your discovery of this wonderful and witty author.' Cover matches stock image.
