Julian was in love with Alexandra, Alexandra was in love with Julian. She had no doubts about that, and being engaged to Julian was delightful. Yet, somehow, as a husband, she felt he might prove less perfect - until she had taught him the little lesson he needed. Julian learnt it in Scotland, Yorkshire, Devon, London. His mystified family looked on.
When Julian Hurst went into partnership in an art business instead of in the family firm of solicitors, his family was surprised that he made such a success of it.
They would have been still more surprised if they had known what his business trip to Yorkshire to view some Clauval paintings was to lead to.
His engagement to the delightful but mysterious Alexandra Bell, and her subsequent disappearance which led him such a dance through Scotland, Yorkshire, Devon, and London, provoked behavior which seemed odd, to say the least of it.

A favorite Cadell with wonderful recording!
I like them both. :-)
How unexpected the story is. Cadell always manages to surprise.
That would be a spoiler!
It made me laugh, smile and sigh.
This is such a fun story and the narration is delightful, a perfect pairing, IMHO. There's just so much to enjoy here.
