Pretty, impecunious Sally Nicholas never dreamed a fortune could prove a disadvantage, until she became an heiress and watched in bewilderment as her orderly existence went haywire. Coping first with her brother's wild theatrical ambitions, then with the defection of her fiancé and his immediate replacement by a much more appropriate but strangely unattractive suitor, Sally finds that life in New York is becoming altogether too complicated, and a trip to England only makes the whole situation worse.
But just as Sally is concluding that she has disastrously misplaced her bets, it looks as if a piece of speculation about an outsider might just give her adventures a happy ending.
P.G. Wodehouse is in sparkling form, in a story set on both sides of the Atlantic in the Roaring '20s.
