At Rushwater House in West Barsetshire, Lady Emily Leslie and her family are entertaining an assortment of houseguests, hangers-on, and French monarchists. Amidst a welter of rapturous embraces and moonlight madness, a marriage is finally arranged, as well as the glittering summer party that provides the setting for this novel's hilarious climax. With a refreshing mix of satire and comedy, Wild Strawberries brilliantly captures the many nonsensical intrigues of both young and old
