Publisher Description

“I wonder what Mr. Heritage thought of his godson,” she said quickly.

“Rather clumsy, but quite good manners,” Edith remarked. “And a well-shaped skull.”

These were her own views, but she took it for granted that sensible people would agree with her.

Sisters Edith and Rose have rather come down in the world by keeping their hotel, Seaview House. So Mr Heritage believes, and he’s not pleased when Rose’s daughter Lucy—grown a bit too attractive for his comfort—becomes friendly with his godson Edward. Would-be paramour Nevil isn’t thrilled either, and to complicate matters further, Edward is behind a scheme to build new terraced housing, depriving village residents of their coveted sea view.

Dilemmas and dramas unfold—including a fire, a cook’s prophecy, and a disaster of a luncheon—but the loose ends get tied up in Elizabeth Fair’s cheerful, inimitable style.

Furrowed Middlebrow is delighted to make available, for the first time in over half a century, all six of Elizabeth Fair’s irresistible comedies of domestic life. These new editions all feature an introduction by Elizabeth Crawford.

“light-hearted, shrewd, diverting”--New York Times

“Miss Fair makes writing look very easy, and that is the measure of her creative ability.”--Compton Mackenzie
