9780140015997: A Damsel in Distress

There are some rather unusual things going on at Belpher Castle ...For one thing, the Earl's sister is set on pairing off her stepson, Reggie, and niece, lady Patricia (known as Maud). Maud, on the other hand, is after Geoffrey Raymon, and she is also being pursued by the unacceptable composer George Bevan. Love, anarchy, machiavellian plots, silly asses ...perfect Wodehouse reading.

About the Author:

PG Wodehouse was born in Guildford, Surrey, in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. He was created a Knight of the British Empire in 1975 and died on St. Valentine's Day in the same year at the age of ninety-three. His novels are translated into every language and are frequently adapted for radio and television. In Jeeves and Wooster he created two of the best known and best loved characters in twentieth century literature.

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.
