About the Author:

P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881. He is the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner stories and novels.

From AudioFile:

When Maud Marshmoreton throws herself unexpectedly into George Bevan's cab in London, he falls instantly in love with her. However, Maud is in love with a mysterious American she met in Wales. Maud's aunt, Lady Caroline Byng, wants Maud to marry her stepson, Reggie. But Reggie is in love with his father's secretary, Alice. When George turns up at the Marshmoreton estate with an American accent, confusion ensues. Jonathan Cecil reads this comic tale of mistaken identity and love triangles with humor and impeccable timing. Although the American accents are sometimes wobbly, the British actor has the perfect rhythmic cadence to bring this cheery British trifle to life. A.B.

Wodehouse novel Lady Maud, the spirited young daughter of the Earl of Marshmoreton, is confined to her home, Belpher Castle in Hampshire, under aunt s orders because of an unfortunate infatuation. Enter our hero, George Bevan, an American who writes songs for musicals and is so smitten with Maud that he descends on Hampshire s rolling acres to see off his rival and claim her heart. Meanwhile, in the great Wodehousian tradition, the Earl of Marshmoreton just wants a quiet life pottering in his garden, supported by his portly butler Keggs and free from the demands of his bossy sister and his silly-ass son.
