‘Green velvet and silver – beautiful. “It’s a dream, soft and tasty.” She wiped her face with a skirt fold. « Mine is silver and smells like a bird cage in the summer, but I adore it. Thanks to long evening skirts again.’
Ah, the gowns! A season of dazzling balls, oh the boredom. With her stunning good looks and social connections, Polly Hampton is starting to wilt in the sun.
After the Montdores return from India, Fanny is invited to see them. Polly is a mystery to her, despite her love. Polly has “came out” in India and is anticipated to have a great season in London as a gorgeous and socially significant debutante. The London season and all of the guys Polly meets are completely uninteresting to Polly. Hopes society will be less interested in love relationships “in a chilly environment” Lady Montdore is annoyed by her daughter’s lack of interest in love and marriage. Polly is lovely, but important suitors find her chilly and distant.
“Boy” Dugdale (Polly’s paternal aunt’s husband) has been Polly’s uncle’s boyfriend since she was 14. In addition to his numerous relationships, Boy is a snobby and sexual predator. “Lecherous” behavior towards young females is a joke among Fanny’s Radlett relatives. Posthumously, Polly marries Boy, creating social uproar and upsetting her parents. Lady Montdore’s long-time boyfriend, Boy, has been Polly’s friend. She and Boy are ostracised from society when their father’s will excludes them. They spend many years in Sicily.
Polly elopes to France after professing her love for her uncle ‘Boy’ Dugdale, the Lecherous Lecturer, and being groomed by Lady Montdore for the ideal marriage. But the results of this marriage surprised no one.
Lady Montdore, Polly Hampton’s formidable and ambitious mother, has been preparing her daughter for the ideal marriage. With her beautiful beauty and excellent connections, Polly is bored with her glamorous first season in London. She says she thought that society in a colder environment would be less concerned with love relationships after leaving India, where her father was a Viceroy. To her mother’s dismay, Polly’s distant and disinterested demeanor belies a long-held secret. Unexpected events occur, including a senile duke’s pursuit of disgraced Polly and a young heir currying favour with her parents.
