From the cover: “Resisting the mocking and disturbing glances of his beautiful, unconventional neighbour, Eva Barrington, Stephen lived with his strait-laced aunt in a respectable suburb; and his was “the white flower of a blameless life” till the day he was sent to Somerset on business. For then immediately followed the unfortunate incident of the Anthology of Verse, the lost bus, and the peculiar effects of a glass of cider. The culmination came when he woke in his bedroom in the Inn to find that he was not alone — confronted, indeed, with a predicament in which no respectable man should ever find himself.
