A P.G Wodehouse novel If you come into a lot of money, life becomes easier, right?
No, wrong - at least for Sally Nicholas, whose generosity of spirit immediately runs into all the slings and arrows outrageous fortune can send.
Her handsome fiance turns out not to be all he seems - and then there is the show he's written, which Sally puts on in the theatre.
No, in this delightful early novel from the master of Englsih comedy, life is not straightforward at all.
But waiting in the wings is Ginger Kemp, who really does adore her, seems to make a hash of everything he tries and yet is always ready to try something else.
If money becomes a problem, perhaps Ginger will provide a solution.

Review by CatyM
Another Wodehouse classic, which this time sees the unfortunate Sally gaining and losing both a fortune and several suitors before finding domestic bliss in an unexpected quarter. Add in the difficulties of explaining the duties of a scrum-half to a bewildered American and keeping several large dogs - not to mention several Broadway actresses - under control, and copious quantities of Wodehouse wit and style, and you have the makings of a wonderful story.
Review by veracite
Sally is delightful; I love her madly and, while I knew it would all turn out right in the end, it was a fun trip to get there. Wodehouse still a complete wizard with words.
