Lady Lupin and her husband, Andrew, now have two children and have seemed to settle down into life at the parish in Glanville. But it seems that wherever Lady Lupin goes, murder follows. This is a most unusual case, since Penelope Stevenson is a most beloved 39 year old, who has always taken care of her father and brother. The trouble is, her brother, Dick, is married and has just had a new baby. When their father dies, Dick thinks that Penelope will now be free to marry the man who has loved her for herself for the past twenty years. She has refused him once again, and suddenly there seems to be a big mystery surrounding her death and who she truly was in life. Therein lies the true puzzle, and it seems to be up to Lupin to solve it:
"What on earth was she to do? What she wanted to do and what common sense told her to do was to go home tomorrow. She would take Christopher with her and there would be Andrew and Peter and Jill! It wasn't as if she could do any good here. Or could she? Was there anything left for her to do? Surely Mr. Borden would be able to clear up everything. She probably made things much worse with her cockeyed notions. Lady Deering, for instance! One could hardly imagine Lady Deering strolling into the garden on a Sunday evening, shooting Penelope and returning to the hall to sit at the head of the dinner table, looking charming in gray chiffon."
PENELOPE PASSES is an exquisite mystery, and Lupin is endearing. A great read!
