Your name is Perigrine Chase. You live a humdrum life when suddenly an unknown aunt dies and bequeaths her quaint Elizabethan manor, Blackboys, her butler, her farms and her amazing furniture to you (your now an esq.!). Well the gardens ARE overrun with a family of peacocks and everyone wants your lot. SHAME!
Discover Perigrine's outcome when reading Vita Sackville-West's tiny little gem, The Heir. She's fast becoming my favorite, just finishing All Passion Spent. I'll post about that another day. Thanks to Stuck in a Book for his tremendous book recommendations. Howard's End is on the Landing was wonderful!
