Written in the Edwardian Age before the First World War this book starts to show how society was gradually changing at that time, and which was the beginnings of our modern society. Written with a lightness of touch this in a way conceals the issues that arise here, such as independence, freedom of religious thought, politics, class structure, and the stiff upper lip. Both a social comedy, and a comedy of manners there is much to have a chuckle at. Right from the beginning with a father and son offering two women their hotel rooms as they have better views, we can see how the structure of society and etiquette is brought into question. We tend to forget that a hundred years ago society was much more rigid than it is today, which as shown here does lead to all sorts of situations that are funny. With romance thrown in as well this is well worth reading, by men and women and I hope that it gives you as much entertainment as I have got from this story over the years.
