by Karen Charbonneau

A World War II romance, a rocky marriage, the births of a son and daughter, and a move to rural Idaho. Betty then recounts Mitch’s gradual spiral from being a man who could build or fix anything into the world of the mentally ill, obsessed with the Virgin Mary and extra-terrestrial flight. Betty relies on her love of the land for the courage to fulfill her marriage vows and protect her family. From a life of subservience to the family bread-winner, temptation, fear and love give a razor’s edge to a sometime funny, but often difficult life. It is also the story of the conflicting relationship between mother and daughter, Torie, and Betty’s pride and fears for son, Michael, who becomes a combat infantry lieutenant in Vietnam. The author drew on her observations of her father’s mental illness to give this novel authenticity.

P.G. Wodehouse is at his whimsical best as the characters of Belpher Castle muddle through impending catastrophes and ill-considered love affairs in this comedy of errors.

But when the Lady Patricia Maud Marsh slips into his taxi, he is drawn into the frivolous intrigues of Belpher Castle. George is mistaken for another American with whom Maud has fallen in love.

Meanwhile, her father, Lord John Marshmoreton, has fallen in love with an actress. As the Castle servants make bets on their Lords’ and Ladies’ capricious attachments, Wodehouse weaves a jaunty satire that will leave readers breathless with its twists and antics.
