Lord Dewar plans to produce an amateur performance of Romeo and Juliet and enlists the aid of local residents and a poor relation, Holly McCormack, who suggest Dewar should attend to his responsibilities instead
Amazon.com description: Product Description
Lord Dewar visits St. Alton's Abbey, his ancestral estates, infrequently, preferring the cultural atmosphere of London, for the handsome young landowner is a great devotee of the artsâmusic, painting and especially the theater. It has been more than two years, then, since Holly McCormack has laid eyes on his lordship. Not that she minds, for Holly is eminently practical, as a poor relation making a home with better-off relatives must necessarily be. If she gives any thought to Dewar at all, it is only to condemn him in her mind for neglecting the duties incumbent on the lord of the Abbey. Things change however, when Dewar comes home on a rare visit.
