Daphne Armitage 18-19, exquisite black-haired beauty of six sisters, intends to avoid the turmoil of true love by demanding nothing more of a husband than to be an elegant companion. The self-absorbed Mr Archer seems to fit the bill to perfection. But Mr Simon Garfield agitates Daphne's calm and disrupts her intentions.
Lady Godolphin is a fave in the series for her funny phrases."Men are a lot of follicles .. I've given them up .. started at Lent and kept on going .. paint too". Mourning loss of beloved unfaithful Colonel Brian, she looks "a great deal younger .. like a well-scrubbed bulldog" p 8.(view spoiler)[
The skinny lover returns and leaps on his missed, likewise flirtatious pillowy sweetheart. Daphne gets an unlikely education. She happens on the couple going at it, runs to reliable motherly eldest sister Minerva.
Archer overhears vicar say second-oldest girl has baby not hers, and jumps to conclusion of incest, blackmails Daphne to give up Garfield, when she agrees Garfield will ask her father's permission. Sulky Betty, ladies' maid, knows she can't shoot straight, aims at vicar. He flattens to ground. He tells truth all round, takes squalling infant from separated adopters, marries Betty to her John, returns babe to grieving Betty. Of course, happy ever after.(hide spoiler)]
