Publisher's Summary

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.
Note: these titles contain the original, unabridged, text exactly as the author first wrote it. Many later editions of Elizabeth Cadell's works were heavily abridged or changed. We hope you enjoy the re-issue of these timeless books. Watch for more to come in the near future!

Elizabeth Cadell!

I really enjoy Elizabeth Cadell. Unfortunately, only 3 on Audible -- in my order of preference: The Corner Shop, The Lark Shall Sing, The Cuckoo in Spring. Lots more on Kindle.
