For light romance reading. Set in 19th England this is a humorous story about a young earl trying to escape an entanglement of society women seeking to marry him for his title and wealth. To escape three women claiming to be his betrothed, and all which he has no interest in, he travels to the English countryside. His escape is actually a mission to fulfill a promise made to his father on his deathbed. At that time the dying elder Earl pleaded with him to try to find his very young half-sister who disappeared after a tragic coach accident that killed the Earl's young wife. The trip proves to be quite an adventure filled with many funny characters including a crazy aunt who talks to the dead and a wild goose named Wellesey.
