Bertie desperately wants to avoid the rural town of Steeple Bumpleigh, where his fearsome Aunt Agatha and her husband Lord Worplesdon (Uncle Percy) live, along with Bertie’s ex-fiancée Florence Cray and her troubled younger brother. Nonetheless, Jeeves talks Bertie into visiting his Uncle Percy and mayhem ensues: Florence’s younger brother accidentally sets fire to the cottage where Bertie is to stay, but Uncle Percy accuses Bertie of arson. Florence is now betrothed to "Stilton" Cheesewright, an old school chum of Bertie's who is now a town constable — and when Florence threatens to ditch him, he decides Bertie's up to no good. Meanwhile, Bertie promises Cousin Nobby to talk to Uncle Percy, who won't accept her engagement to a young writer. Can Bertie reconcile the family? Only Jeeves can help him weather the storm.
P.G. Wodehouse first introduced the upper class twit, Bertie Wooster, and his astonishing valet, Jeeves, in a 1915 short story entitled "Extricating Young Gussie." Many more stories and full-length novels followed. Whereas Bertie’s appraisals of a given predicament are often feeble and impetuous, Jeeves possesses great aplomb and common sense, married to a cool intelligence and ability to express himself with precision and economy.

Jeeves in the Morning reflects the glories and absurdities of a vanished era as Jeeves and his master, Bertie Wooster, frolic through a series of outrageous and nightmarish doings.From AudioFile:
Here are the zany misadventures of foggy-minded aristocrat Bertie Wooster and his sharp-witted valet, Jeeves. They visit Steeple Bumpleigh, home of Bertie's Uncle Percy, also the home of Bertie's ex-fiancée, Florence, and her new fiancé, Constable Stilton Cheesewright. In addition, Bertie's cousin, Nobby, wants Bertie's help in gaining Uncle Percy's approval of her writer fiancé. To complicate the romantic antics, Stilton thinks Bertie wants to reconcile with Florence (as does Florence) and threatens bodily harm. Into the muddle comes Jeeves, who, as always, saves the day. It's hard to improve on this treasure, but Jonathan Cecil does it with an impeccable, wildly funny narration. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
