‘How beautiful – silver and green velvet. That is what I refer to as a dream; it is also very smooth and delectable.’ Her face was touched by a fold of the skirt. ‘Mine is silver-lead, and when it gets heated, it smells like a bird cage, but I adore it. Aren’t you relieved that evening skirts have been restored to their proper length?’
The gowns, ah! But the SeasonSeason, with its never-ending parade of dazzling balls, is monotonous. Even incredibly stylish Polly Hampton is starting to wilt under the spotlight, despite her stunning good looks and extensive social network.
Following the Montdores’ return from India, Fanny is invited to see them. She adores Polly, but Polly is a mystery. Polly “came out” in India and is anticipated to have a very successful season in London as a stunning and socially significant debutante. Polly, on the other hand, exhibits a constant lack of interest in the London season and all of the guys she encounters.
She hopes that society would be less interested in love relationships “in a chilly environment.” Lady Montdore is enraged by her daughter’s apparent lack of enthusiasm for love and marriage. “Important” suitors recognize Polly’s beauty but describe her as chilly and distant.
Polly keeps to herself the fact that she has been in love with her uncle, “Boy” Dugdale (the spouse of her paternal aunt) since she was fourteen. The boy is snobby and sexually voracious; both his wife and the rest of society are aware of his many relationships. Fanny and her Radlett relatives have long accused the sexually ambiguous Boy of pedophilia, and he is a source of amusement among Fanny’s cousins for his improper touching and “lecherous” behavior with young females.
Polly marries Boy soon after her aunt’s death, sparking outrage in her social group and bringing great pain to her parents. The boy has been Lady Montdore’s lover for many years, unbeknownst to Polly. Following her marriage, she is left out of her father’s will and she and Boy are social outcasts. For many years, they relocate to Sicily.
Polly, who has been groomed for the ideal marriage by her mother, the formidable Lady Montdore, shocks society by proclaiming her love for her uncle ‘Boy’ Dugdale, the Lecherous Lecturer, and immediately eloping to France. However, none could have predicted the repercussions of this relationship…
Polly Hampton has been nurtured by her mother, the formidable and ambitious Lady Montdore, for years to find the ideal marriage. Polly, meanwhile, is frustrated by the routine of her dazzling first SeasonSeason in London, despite her amazing good looks and excellent connections. She claimed to have thought that society in a colder environment would be less preoccupied with love relationships after returning from India, where her father served as Viceroy.
Polly, who seems to be distant and disinterested, conceals a long-held secret that ultimately destroys her mother’s hopes and results in her own disinheritance. When an old duke starts courting the disgraced Polly and a callow prospective heir curry favor with her parents, nothing goes as planned, but everyone ultimately finds happiness in their own unique ways.
