About this title

Synopsis:

Barney Bray is a brilliant young engineer, but ill health forces him to give up his career and take up farming on a very modest scale. He is engaged to Constance. Sandra Carson is an independently minded girl who does not accept that she must marry into the kind of circles her father wishes. The family are very wealthy. One day, she calls at Barney’s farm to explain why the housekeeper he is expecting will not be arriving. Barney mistakes her for the housekeeper and she goes along with it. Their subsequent love story is woven around the struggle to make the farm pay, but Sandra becomes increasingly worried about the eventual discovery of her true identity and wealth. The villagers meantime, are shocked to observe what is going on, but who cares? And how does Maud feature?

About the Author:

Netta Muskett was born in Sevenoaks, Kent, and was educated at Kent College, Folkestone. She taught mathematics before joining the Voluntary Aid Detachment which took her to France where she drove an ambulance during the First World War. It was during the same war that she lost her brother who was killed in Egypt whilst serving with the Imperial Camel Corp (ICC) in 1916. In the 1920's she moved to Fleet Street where she worked as a secretary to Lord Riddell who was then Managing Director and owner of the News of the World. In 1925, she married Henry Wallace Muskett and brought up four children, three of whom were from Henry's previous marriage. Two years later she wrote her first novel, 'The Jade Spider'. What followed was a career of writing that spanned over 37 years. During the Second World War she again served with the V.A.D where she taught handicrafts in British and American hospitals. Netta co-founded the Romantic Novelists' Association, where she served as Vice-President. In her honour the RNA created the Netta Muskett award for outstanding new writers, now called the RNA New Writers Scheme. In her private life she was a home-lover who generally shied away from appearing at public functions, avoiding where she could any semblance of sel-publicity. She enjoyed pottery, weaving and sewing, and also loved to travel especially in the tropics and Africa. She died at her home in Putney in 1963 and her last novel, 'Cloudbreak', was published posthumously.
