Although the same distinctive and original quality pervadesthem all, they tackle a variety of themes. "Mrs. Mandford's Drawing- room" , the story of an Englishwoman with a Continental daughter-in-law, recalls the now nearly forgotten ideals of England in wartime. The hero of "The Financial World" is Harry Shuttlefold, a millionaire from the Industrial Northwho suffered only one reverse. "The Crown Princess" intimately examines th e young princess's relationship to the public and to her own bizarre familyon the most crucial day of her life. "Fordie" is about a group of people w ho ask themselves, What is the point of literature? Miss Brophy's first book shows wit and a command of narrative technique, but its virtue lies in the imaginative and candid depiction of human beings involved in relationships both subtle and moving." fromt dj flap.
