Publisher's Summary

Percival Windham is a second son and a cavalry officer acclaimed and respected by his men. He is immensely attractive and distracts himself with the women who seem to throw themselves at him at every turn. At a country house party, Percy meets beautiful, retiring Esther Himmelfarb. Esther's wealthier relations are taking shameless advantage of her dependence on them, and only Percy seems to see the striking intelligence beneath her modest demeanor. Percy sees her as the perfect companion, and she finds in him the man of her dreams.

Good story, but the narration was just ok

The narrator did a good job on the male voices, but the female voices were shrill and whining and annoying.

Cute short listen

Any additional comments?

Percival meets Ester at a house party. He sees her as interesting and attractive, but to everyone else she is the poor relation drudge. A ride in the rain changes everything as the two are thrown together in a private setting. A satisfying finish.
