Summary

Polly Hampton has long been groomed for the perfect marriage by her mother, Lady Montdore. But Polly is bored by the monotony of her glittering debut season in London. The apparently indifferent Polly has a long-held secret, however, that leads to a scandalous elopement and her own disinheritance. Includes an Introduction by the author of "Pauline Bonaparte: Venus of Empire."

Author Biography

Nancy Mitford, daughter of Lord and Lady Redesdale and the eldest of the six legendary Mitford sisters, was born in 1904 and educated at home on the family estate in Oxfordshire. She made her debut in London and soon became one of the bright young things of the 1920s, a close friend of Henry Green, Evelyn Waugh, John Betjeman, and their circle. A beauty and a wit, she began writing for magazines and writing novels while she was still in her twenties. In all, she wrote eight novels as well as biographies of Madame de Pompadour, Voltaire, Louis XIV, and Frederick the Great. She died in 1973. More information can be found at www.nancymitford.com.
