Publisher's Summary

Lucille Abbey runs her London secretarial agency with utmost efficiency. When, therefore, a certain Professor Hallam rejects three girls sent by her to apply for the post of his secretary and they each pronounce him “impossible”, Lucille herself sets out to interview the Professor at his home in Hampshire. He is, she finds, eccentric—even impossible; but he represents a challenge and, what is more, an excuse to delay what promises to be a trying holiday in Paris. She stays on to tame and to organize him—a less formidable task than she had imagined; in fact, she grows fond of him. But the atmosphere is somewhat disturbed first by the arrival of a debonair French art expert in search of paintings left to the Professor by his mother, and the next by a hysterical girl on the track of her runaway fiancé. The paintings have unaccountably disappeared; the mystery is still unsolved by the time Lucille’s work for the Professor comes to an end and she has to set off for Paris. At her aunt’s shop in the Rue des Dames, the arrival there of the indomitable art expert, the hysterical girl, the Professor, and a persistent suitor to boot, throw Lucille’s normally orderly life into complete upheaval.

*Note, these titles contain the original, unabridged, text exactly as the author first wrote it. Many later editions of Elizabeth Cadell's works were heavily abridged or changed. We hope you enjoy the re-issue of these timeless books. Watch for more to come in the near future!

    "Another lovely recording of a favorite author/sto"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As a longtime fan of Cadell, I always recommend the books, but the recording of the book adds a new level to the experience. Narrator does a great job of bringing the story to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did want to and have re-listened.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love gentle listens with great characters and writing, try Cadell. :-)

    "Best of Cadell on audible"

    Of this author's three books available on audible (arrange for more, please!), i enjoyed this one the most. You'll want to pay close attention as you listen since there is little "filler". A definite recommend.
