In August Folly, the village of Worsted is staging Hippolytus. Inevitably, the most absurd romances bloom. Boorish young Richard Tebben, just down from Oxford, falls in love with Mrs. Dean, mother of nine, whose oldest son loves Richard's sister, who in turn loves another. And round and round it goes. Amidst a series of comic catastrophes, everyone manages to redeem themselves.

Witty, snobbish, sweet, and evocative, Mrs. Thirkell's Barsetshire novels provide a bemused scrutiny of British manners in the most delightfully entertaining doses. Download and start listening now!

    " This is one of the first Angela Thirkell books I read, and I really enjoyed it. All of her books are about normal everyday people, but she finds humor in everything. She is a very charming writer! "

    " Poor Mrs. Tebben and poor Richard, who is an ungrateful wretch but shown in as good a light as he ever warranted when he saves little Jessica from the mad bull. The romance between Helen and Mr. Fanshawe is a special treat. "

About the Author
Author Angela Thirkell

Angela Thirkell (1890–1961) granddaughter of Sir Edward Burne-Jones, was born in London. At age twenty-eight, she moved to Melbourne, Australia, where she became involved in broadcasting and was a frequent contributor to British periodicals. She began writing novels after her return to Britain in 1930 and from then on produced a new book almost every year. Her stylish prose and deft portrayal of the human comedy in the imaginary county of Barsetshire have amused readers for decades.
