Description
The last months of 1899 are a time of riot and confusion, with war abroad and shortage of money. Tea gowns are still laced with diamonds and there are still nine courses at dinner, but bankruptcy looms for the aristocratic household of the Dilbernes. While the Earl, a gambler and man about town, must seek a new post in government, Lady Isobel's solution is to marry off their son Arthur to a wealthy heiress, and without delay—even if she is Minnie O'Brien from Chicago, daughter of a stockyard baron. Fay Weldon tells this tale of restraint and desire, manners and morals with wit and sympathy—if no small measure of mischief—as young Minnie and Arthur, thrown together by their parents, strive to determine their own destiny. The author of dozens of novels as well as the pilot episode of the television series Upstairs Downstairs and other screenplays—and a number of Britain's better-known advertising slogans—Weldon here takes us back to a time of social upheaval and new possibilities for Englishwomen at the turn of the 20th century in this first book of her Love and Inheritance trilogy.
