Synopsis

Youre not doing very much at the moment, darling. I dont suppose youd care to housesit for a while? Thus begins the irresistible story of two fixeruppersan old house and a young womanand their efforts to recapture their true luster. When Hetty Longden, freshly dumped and brokenhearted, agrees to look after her greatuncles dilapidated mansion in the English countryside, shes at something of a lifetime low. With no job, no lover, no prospects, and no particular talent for resuscitating crumbling estates, she hopes for nothing more than some good oldfashioned escape. What she finds includes a cast of quirky and everpresent neighbors, a couple of SNAGs (Sensitive New Age Guys); some very humorless bank officials; a cat and two disarming little canines; one gracious, dilapidated, romantic old house; and, just maybe, enough elbow grease to polish everything up again. A Sunday Times (London) bestseller thats as inviting as an elegant old house full of unexplored rooms, after a good scrubbingdown, of course, Stately Pursuits is the funniest, smartest, and warmest read of the season.
