"This is a light comedy and a parody of letters exchanged between a wealthy aunt and her nephew. A sort of twisted Downton Abbey. Recently discovered letters between a nephew and his scarcely lucid aunt reveals the scandalous goings-on at Butterbrooke Breeze and its amusingly deviant dwellers. Letters found in a well forgotten attic reveal the goings-on in the day-to-day life at the English country estate. Sebastian Wentworth Greathead (pronounced Grey-Theed!) and his dear aunt Countess Cordillia Honeyknob Pryme, have much to say by way of countryside slander. Poor Sebastian is harassed buy an avid butterfly fan, while the Countess wallow in the everyday theatrics of Butterbrooke as well as the adventures of a favorite nephew at various ports of call.
The letters of Sebastian and the Countess teem with innuendo, satire and irreverence, and yet their words charm to the last sentence. A very funny read, indeed."
