Description - Summer Moonshine by P. G. Wodehouse
A P.G. Wodehouse novel Poor Sir Buckstone Abbott, Bart! Not only does he own in Walsingford Hall one of the least attractive stately homes in the country, but he has to take in paying guests to keep it upright. So when it seems a rich (if not very nice) continental princess might buy it, he s overjoyed particularly as he s being rooked by the publisher of his sporting memoirs. His daughter Jane comes up trumps in the company of the playwright Joe but not before engagements are broken and fortunes lost and made.In a sunny story which involves chorus-girls, the theatre and a ball at the castle during a two-week house-party, Wodehouse deftly unties all the knots which he had so cleverly tied around his characters in the first place.
