James Ollerenshaw is a middle-aged, wealthy bachelor who lives in Bursley, one of the Five Towns. A chance encounter with Helen, his great step niece, a determined young lady in her twenties, turns his whole world – and hers - upside down.

Reviews

A Fun Happy Romp


(5 stars)

Once again the combination of Simon Evers and Arnold Bennett is unsurpassed in the delivery of a wonderful little popcorn of a cheerful short story. Thanks so much Mr. Evers for your personal dedication to keeping literature of this caliber in our sights and minds. Cheers from California!

great reading!!


(5 stars)

Typical Bennett book. Reader did it so well! Everything is good, but the voice for the grumpy old man is superb!

Not the usual

Builds slowly, but precisely with enough time to create a splash of enjoyment at the end.
