And Bellew, remembering a certain pair of slender ankles that had revealed themselves in their hurried flight, smiled back at the cavalier, and it was all he could do to refrain from winking outright.

Small Porges was at his lessons. He was perched at the great oak table beside the window, pen in hand, and within easy reach of Anthea who sat busied with her daily letters and accounts. Small Porges was laboriously inscribing in a somewhat splashed and besmeared copy-book the rather surprising facts that:

Pretty cute, quick read. When George Bellew is rejected by the girl he thought he would marry, he asks his butler for advice. The butler finally concedes his opinion that George was never in love at all, but summarizes the typical ways men act when they are crossed in love. George decides his bes...more

This was the sweetest Farnol I've ever read. I am truly sorry I put off reading it so long.

The story starts with George Bellow, a American millionaire, who had set off to England to win a fair lady. But, since she doesn't want anything to do with him he trots off on a hike to find himself. That'...more

Romantic Comedy in the Best Sense

This book made me laugh out loud a couple times, and was very tender while not being sappy. A very enjoyable story!

I've never read any Farnol before but I will look for more after reading this! He manages to write a story with not one but two romances that strike the right blend of old-fashioned sweetness without being too saccharine. So many charming, lyrical descriptions of the beautiful "Arcadia" that our...more

Loved reading this book. Very well written with classic English charm. Almost like reading a poem. The story is simple but engaging with great characters. Would love to see this as a movie. This is my second Farnol book and I look forward to reading more.

That's really all you need to know. A few notes:

I read this because Jack Vance lists Farnol as a personal favorite. Maybe I picked the wrong Farnol book.

The protagonist is supposed to be charming, but comes across as insufferable. He just sits around smirking at poor people for most of the book.

It was a lovely, sweet and cute story. It reminds me of Marietta: A Maid of Venice and The Princess Bride, although they are different, I have felt a similar atmosphere. All because of an narration like in a fairy tale. There aren't fairies and so on but still it is so cute that I wanted to hug t...more

A highly improbable little confection written in 1911 before England had entirely lost her innocence. I read a first edition with glorious and very lavish illustrations and page illuminations by Arthur I. Keller. The pictures were better than the story, which I found interesting mostly as a perio...more

A heartwarming, enjoyable tale of an American billionaire from 1911 who is jilted by his lady-love and is advised by his valet to go find solace in travel. Pretty soon he's off on a lark, proving to himself his hurt hadn't gone too deep, but since he's enjoying his unorthodox lark, he keeps at it...more
