really liked it
bookshelves: uk, 20th-century, house-party, romance, fiction, humor
Read in January, 1979

I found the entire works of Elinor Glyn in the Harvard libraries, and this was my favorite. Naive English debutante Elizabeth, making the rounds of English house parties, sends letters to her mother describing the often improper behavior of the ton. It is clear that her mother is much more sophisticated and is hoping Elizabeth will marry well. Elizabeth is well born and beautiful and her seemingly naughty but merely ingenuous remarks alternatively annoy or delight those around her until she receives a suitable proposal.
