Publisher's Summary

The arrival of a golf ball on the green at the eighteenth hole at Bingley-on-Sea sets in motion a train of events to cast men everywhere into despondency. For the striker of the ball is not only a woman doctor but beautiful into the bargain. The disease of love in its most virulent strain attacks Bill Bannister; confusion sets in everywhere, and only a prescription of Wodehousian wit and humor can save the situation.

Wodehouse Charm And Social Commentary

I first encountered Wodehouse like most do--through the Jeeves stories, and since those years ago, he has never failed to delight me with the fine British wit and charm that come across in every well-crafted line of his stories and short novels. The real grace of Wodehouse is that his fiction feels light, with its airy little jokes and puns, but there is, in the end, real depth in the social commentary and criticism that is always present, even in the most light-hearted tale. Doctor Sally comes highly recommended.

old-fashioned

Written in the 1950s the story / romance is quite outdated. Yet it's still a nice read for a short drive or journey. Unfortunately the sound quality is not very good.
