    Emily Eden was the daughter of the 1st Baron Auckland, a close confidant of Pitt. She was thus well placed to observe the manners and mores of nineteenth century aristocracy. A huge admirer of Jane Austen, her works reflect this in their perception, tongue in cheek humour and benevolence toward the victims of her pen. 'The Semi Attached Couple' is a revealing insight of attitudes and customs within marriage.

    Helen Eskdale and rich Lord Teviot seem to be the match made in heaven. But when they marry, they find that misunderstandings and jealousies plague everything. Will their marriage and love survive the infernal manipulations of a rather large and eccentric entourage? This lovely, observantly comedic work plays in many ways like a sort of "Jane Austen light"!
