The Adventures of Sally
If you come into a lot of money, life becomes easier, right?
No, wrong – at least for Sally Nicholas, whose generosity of spirit immediately runs into all the slings and arrows outrageous fortune can send. Her handsome fiance turns out not to be all he seems – and then there is the show he’s written, which Sally puts on in the theatre. No, in this delightful early novel from the master of Englsih comedy, life is not straightforward at all.
But waiting in the wings is Ginger Kemp, who really does adore her, seems to make a hash of everything he tries and yet is always ready to try something else. If money becomes a problem, perhaps Ginger will provide a solution.
