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:

Good gad! Belpher Castle is a-dither with romance and intrigue. Wodehouse's usual twits are in full cry as they leap about the manicured landscape. And hovering close in the background are the ever-vigilant, poisonous aunts who spend their entire lives being aghast. There's plenty to be aghast about when the lord of the manor falls madly in love with an actress (huge intake of breath) named (another huge intake) Billie. Reader Frederick Davidson portrays each character perfectly–sorting them out for the listener. His portrayal of Reggie, the wealthy and earnest American composer, is wonderful, and the women–ingenues and aunts–are very sweet or dragonish, depending. Along the way, listeners learn never to throw rice at weddings–it's worse than shrapnel. Quite. B.V. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
