Description

A charming and witty novel, set in a small country town in 1919. 'When Adelaide Nightingale, Louisa Worthington, Maggie O'Connell and Pearl McCleary threw caution to the winds in the most brazen way imaginable, disgrace was bound to follow.' It's September 1919. The war is over, and everyone who was going to die from the flu has done so. But there's a shortage of husbands and women in strife will flounder without a male to act on their behalf. And in the southern New South Wales town of Prospect, four ladies bereft of men have problems that threaten to overwhelm them. Beautiful Louisa Worthington, whose dashing husband died for King and Country, is being ruined by the debts he left behind. Young Maggie O'Connell, who lost her mother in childbirth and her father to a redhead, is raising her two wayward brothers and fighting for land she can't prove is hers. Adelaide Nightingale has a husband, but he's returned from the war in a rage and is refusing to tackle the thieving manager of their famous family store. Pearl McCleary, Adelaide's new housekeeper, must find her missing fiancU before it's too late and someone dies. Thank God these desperate ladies have a solution- a part-time husband who will rescue them all. To find him, they'll advertise. To afford him, they'll share . . . 'Hilarious' Marie Claire 'A light, funny, warm-hearted read' Books + Publishing
