COUNTESS CARROTS

Another cabbageheaded historical romance, about the tremors of red-haired Lady Elizabeth Ogle, relative of Howards and Percys during the reign of Charles II. Lady Elizabeth, oppressed by her guardian grandmother, is wed once to a child count, who fortunately dies, and wed again by her grandmother's trickery to a wealthy Englishman -- who is blunderbussed to death by orders of the man she adores, Swedish Count Carl. But Carl is a cad -- and wedding number three finally hits the mark. Charles II and Princess Mary are good friends and true throughout and the tale is classed up with sensible French: ""Mes amis,"" says Louis XIV, ""asseyez-vous s'il vous plait.
