Another Novel in the Barsetshire Series.
The prequel to Lord David Prosser's My Barchester Diary called The Queen's Envoy which describes the inheritance of his Title and also an unexpected job as an Envoy which leaves him like a fish out of water.
Lord David who retired from working as a Local Government Officer only took up his writing career at 60 and says "It's the best fun I've ever had."
The gist of this new book which unlike most doesn't rely on bad language, sex or violence to sell the story, is that Lord David inherits a job along with the Title . His deceased cousin had been an Unofficial Envoy to HMG and Lord David is asked to continue in the role. Can he afford to turn it down?
He's a fish out of water groping his way from situation to situation with a hint of desparation but with all the aplomb and stiff upper lip he can muster.Will he cope with all that life throws at him and all the women that seem intent on compromising him?
The Queen's Envoy is available from Lulu.com and is a delightful read if you're prepared to laugh out loud .
