Young Jill Mariner, who sits comfortably at the lower end of upper-class society, is engaged to be married to the handsome Sir Derek Underhill. But life is full of surprises, and hers is about to be turned on its head. This classic tale from master humorist P. G.

I am a big fan of good ole P.G.W. And will listen or read anything connected to him. I loved the plot of this book. I am not so sure why but unlike most of his plots this had some suspense. After all what is more suspenseful than a theatre fire. Many times when I was listening to the book, I thought I would quit just because of the narration. There is enough misery in this world without me trashing the reader. And it may be just me, but I encourage any prospective purchaser to listen to the sample. The reader has good voices and tone, he just pauses about every three words. Sometimes it is exactly every three words, like he is doing a waltz. Oddly enough it almost only occurs when he is reading in his natural voice. When he is doing a voice of a character it is not noticeable. He might consider reading a whole book in character. I hope the presence of this book does not discourage the really good P.G.W. readers from doing the same works.

I loved the new set of characters.


What didn’t you like about David Ian Davies’s performance?

The intonation was so inapt that it impeded understanding and enjoyment of the story. it sounded as though random words and phrases had been joined to produce a narration.


Any additional comments?

This recording is not up to Audible's usual standards.
