Followers of the series will notice in this volume some personality changes in the odd assortment of retainers who keep the infamous house at 67 Clarges Street, in London's Mayfair, at the ready for whatever entrepreneur will rent it as a launching pad into the London social season. This time the renters are an unlikely couple, the Goodenoughs, apparently father and daughter, she a great beauty, he silent and mysterious. Their secrets eventually become known to the downstairs troupe, but the indomitable butler Rainbird rallies the support forces. When Emily Goodenough's social gaffes and earthy winsomeness capture the ton's most eligible bachelor, another successful season at the house comes to a close.

ABOUT THE SERIES


It was the fashion during the Regency period to hire a house for the Season in Mayfair - the heart of London's West End - at a disproportionately high rent for sometimes very inferior accommodation. But Number 67 Clarges Street, a quaint townhouse with a dubious past and lovably eccentric staff, turns over a number of intriguing tenants in this six volume series, replete with romance, intrigue, and mystery.
