Happily married but insolvent, Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau (1785-1871) and his wife Lucie devised a plan to save their beloved estate and finance his landscaping projects: they would divorce, and Pückler would go to England to marry an heiress. Based on the prince's letters reporting his progress to Lucie—which he shaped into a memoir that became a bestseller in his native Germany—this book is a blow-by-blow account of Pückler's courtships, but also a portrait of Regency England through the eyes of an intelligent, observant and, at one point, lovesick fortune hunter.
