"Patricia Brent, Spinster" is a novel by Herbert George Jenkins. Patricia Brent is a "paying guest" at the Galvin House Residential Hotel. One day she overhears two of her fellow "guests" pitying her because she "never has a nice young man to take her out". In a thoughtless moment of anger, she announces that on the following night she is dining at the Quadrant with her fiancé.
When in due course she enters the grillroom, she finds some Galvin guests there to watch her. Rendered reckless by the thought of the humiliation of being found out, she goes up to a young staff-officer, and asks him to help her by "playing up". This is how she meets Lt.-Col. Lord Peter Bowen, D.S.O. The story is a comedy concerned with the complications that ensue from Patricia's thoughtless act.
Herbert George Jenkins (1876-1923) was a British writer and the owner of the publishing company. His most popular fictional creation was Mr. Joseph Bindle.
