GAY PURSUIT by Elizabeth Cadell


Email this review


Casual comedy, which provides lighter, brighter entertainment in the tripartite romantic activities of the Romes, in County England. Of Natalie, timid and unsure, and many years a widow, as she marries Sir William Rome and goes to stay with his family. Of her new stepdaughter, Lucile as uncertain as Natalie by temperament, and committed to marrying a boy she'd known since childhood, despite the persistence of a Highlander, Duncan Macdonald. And finally, Natalie's own daughter, Helen, whose citified composure is shattered by Jeremy, Natalie's stepson, his offhand courtship, his passive resistance to her charms, until-her hand forced- he wins...By the author of Last Straw for Harriet, this is a British bagatelle for less intellectual self-indulgence.
