Product description

From Library Journal

The focus of this novel is Howarth, an English stately home. The Marquess of Arlington and his wife will do nearly anything to keep ithe, because of his attachment to it, she because, as a middle-class girl, it establishes her aristocratic status. Lord deConroy, whose ancestor had owned Howarth and gambled it away, will do anything to get it back. In the face of his own poverty, the enormous expenses of upkeep, the rapacity of the tax collectors, and the determination of deConroy, the Marquess nevertheless restores and holds his home. He is willing to let his son make a disastrous marriage that will keep the estate in the family but finds that there are moral limits to what he will do for Howarth. A high-class soap opera with a ready-made audience. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates. Marylaine Block, St. Ambrose Coll. Lib., Davenport, Ia.
