    Story
    "so-so Sonia"

    This is not an Appleby book, and it suffers from a vacuum of intelligence. Petticate, the protagonist, is a cartoon Englishman, without charm or wit; his wife and the society in their circle are all almost belligerently stupid. Petticate's predicament starts out promisingly but it's just not a pleasant place to stay for a long visit.
