Patricia Brent, Spinster

by Herbert Jenkins

A light, sparkling story set in WWI London. In order to halt the catty remarks of her fellow-boarders, single Patricia persuades a stranger to pretend to be her fiance for an evening out. To Patricia's chagrin, he decides to make the charade come to pass, enlisting the aid of everyone around Patricia. Hilarity and awkward moments ensue, creating a story mixing the comfortable humor and romance of Anne of Green Gables with the wit of Oscar Wilde.

Author of the Day

William A. Liggett

As our Author of the Day, Liggett talks about his book, Watermelon Snow, his research and reveals why he put a positive spin on a book about global warming.
