stralia--alone.

Then an astounding thing had happened. Godfrey had had a fortune left him by an eccentric old man in whose employment he had been as secretary for a while.

This is a story of a young Englishman who, after nine years' experience abroad, rediscovers the beauty of English rural life and gets reunited with his old love. Compared with the same author's extraordinary mystery "The Lodger", I have to give this novel four stars, but still I enjoyed every moment of reading it and was impressed with the author's skillful story telling.
