Publisher's Summary

It's August in the Barsetshire village of Worsted, and Richard Tebben, just down from Oxford, is contemplating the gloomy prospect of a long summer in the parental home. But the numerous and impossibly glamorous Dean family - exquisite Rachel, her capable husband and six of their nine brilliant children - have come for the holidays, and their hostess, Mrs. Palmer, plans to rope everyone into performing in her disastrous annual play.
Surrounded by the irrepressible Deans, Richard and his sister, Margaret, cannot help but have their minds broadened, spirits raised and hearts smitten.

Delicious

This is my favourite Angela Thirkell novel and Jilly Bond provides an excellent narration (I think my only quibble would be Mr Tebben's accent, which I see no reason for). It's a complete froth of a story - with everyone home for the summer and eating all the raspberries, Mrs Palmer decides that it's the perfect moment to stage a Greek drama in the family's concerted barn, and commandeers all the young people and half the village residents. Against this background people discover real and imagined loves, and Gunnar the cat behaves badly whenever he can. Delicious.
