From the back cover:
Poppy Carew vacillates. She can't decide whether she hates Edmund for leaving her for a richer woman or whether she loves him. She doesn't know, for that matter, if she loves her father. Now that he's dead (with laughter on his lips over the Edmund episode), Poppy has even more decisions to make. Should she sell her father's house or rent it to Fergus, owner of Furnival's Fun Funerals? Should she go to North Africa with Edmund (who wants her back)? Should she go to bed with Fergus, or with his novelist cousin Victor? Or should she settle down and marry Willy, the pig farmer who really loves her?
