A madcap adventure whose comic twists and turns could only have come from the zany imagination of P. G. Wodehouse
George Bevan, an American composer of musicals, is in England to attend the performance of one. But when Lady Patricia Maud Marsh slips into his taxi, he is drawn into the frivolous intrigues of Belpher Castle. Maud has mistaken George for another American she once fell in love with. She is attempting to escape her aunt, Lady Caroline Byng, who is trying to marry Maud off to her stepson, Reginald. Meanwhile, her father, Lord John Marshmoreton, has fallen in love with an actress. As the castle servants make bets on their lords' and ladies' capricious attachments, Wodehouse weaves a jaunty satire that will leave readers breathless with its twists and antics.
