"Some people in the Cumberland valley remembered Jimmy as a child, others had never seen him before his sudden return to the Hall; all of them were uneasily aware of him down there, wandering about the empty rooms, alone and drunk." The American edition of this novel is blurbed as "a novel about love and alcoholism," and explains the plot as having to do with the "brilliant but besotted heir of the valley's only nobleman, [who] returns to inhabit the crumbling ancestral estate." He's apparently intent on drinking himself to death, but he hasn't reckoned with 18-year-old Clara. . (Inventory #: 13471)
