Description
When Jane Minton arrives at the eccentric Dome House as a secretary-housekeeper, she is warmly welcomed by widower Rupert Carrington and his children: Richard, the eldest, is a composer; Clare dreams of courtly romance; Drew wants to be a writer; and Merry has her heart set on a career as an actress. Their private idyll is shattered when Rupert flees England under threat of prosecution for fraud, leaving Jane and the family struggling to make ends meet. One by one, the Carringtons leave the nest and search out unusual and remarkable ways to adapt to the modern world, in this 1963 novel. Born near Manchester, Dodie Smith was already bitten by the theater bug when she entered St Paul's Girls School in London, and though she went on to become a remarkably unsuccessful actress, she later became a playwright and novelist of considerable acclaim, beloved for her children's book The Hundred and One Dalmatians. Her first novel, I Capture the Castle—recently voted #82 of Britain's 100 best-loved novels as part of the BBC's Big Read—was followed by a string books known for their vivacious style and warm characters.
