Handsome, wealthy Sir Waldo Hawkridge is the envy of all those around him.

So when the people of Oversett get word of his impending visit, excitement ripples.

But his planned visit ruffles a few feathers, too; not least for Miss Ancilla Trent, who worries about the relationship that may unfold between Waldo and her hot-headed young pupil, Tiffany.

And when Waldo eventually arrives in the village, his presence leads to the most entertaining of ramifications . . .

I owe her many happy hours" -- Margaret Drabble "A writer of great wit and style ... I've read her books to ragged shreds" -- Kate Fenton Daily Telegraph
