Pomfret Towers, Barsetshire seat of the earls of Pomfret, was constructed, with great pomp and want of concern for creature comforts, in the once-fashionable style of Sir Gilbert Scott's St Pancras station. It makes a grand setting for a house party at which gamine Alice Barton and her brother Guy are honoured guests, mixing with the headstrong Rivers family, the tally-ho Wicklows and, most charming of all, Giles Foster, nephew and heir of the present Lord Pomfret. But whose hand will Mr Foster seek in marriage, and who will win Alice's tender heart? Angela Thirkell's classic 1930s comedy is lively, witty and deliciously diverting.

Review:

A perfect balance of satirical observation and chocolate-box charm ... one of the cosiest and funniest reads this winter (The Lady)

Angela Thirkell is perhaps the most Pym-like of any twentieth-century author, after Pym herself (Alexander McCall Smith)

A perfect balance of satirical observation and chocolate-box charm ... Thirkell's novel is one of the cosiest and funniest reads this winter (The Lady)

Book Description:

Alice Barton finds adventure during a Friday-to-Monday at a grand country house in Angela Thirkell's classic, deliciously diverting 1930s romantic comedy.
