Product Overview

1913. A romantic novel from the notable literary couple of Egerton Castle and his wife, Agnes (Sweetman) Castle, who was a sister of the novelist Francis Blundell. The story begins: The hottest afternoon of the hot summer-so Lady Adelaide declared it to be. And though she was assured of the presence of a breeze and confronted with a thermometer, she maintained (on the authority of the Daily Mail, just arrived) that, as it had been ninety-eight at Kew yesterday, here, in South Devon, it must be well over a hundred; especially as the forecasts announced a still increasing temperature. She announced that, if they all chose to behave like lunatics and seek sunstroke in the hayfields, she at least would prove her sanity by lunching indoors and spending the afternoon in the library-the coolest room in the house.
