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. His luck still holding, he had gone through most of the war, including Gallipoli, with only one wound, which had left no ill effects. A man so fortunate ought not to have neglected his old friends.

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.


I would have liked this story better if Enid had been found out and not allowed to just slip away but as in real life criminals do get away with crimes more often then we would care to think. Otherwise an alright story.
