520    Sentimental, affectionate, uncritical, Mrs. Bracken so 
       easily attached herself to persons, places, and even 
       objects that after no more than two days in an hotel she 
       had a favourite waiter, a favourite ornament, a favourite 
       view. She had adored her husband, and was very fond of her
       French pepper-mill.  World War II has ended and widowed 
       Isabel Brocken, kind-hearted and generous if perhaps just 
       a bit foolish, is back in her old family home on the 
       outskirts of London, accompanied by her friend Jacky, just
       out of the ATS, and her newly-demobilized nephew Humphrey.
       They're soon joined by Isabel's surly brother-in-law Simon,
       who has decidedly mixed feelings about her but whose own 
       home is under repair for bomb damage. Into this uneasy mix
       comes Tilly Cuff, a poor relation to whom Isabel has been 
       inspired-by a rare church venture and a particularly 
       inspiring sermon-to make amends for having, many years 
       before, sabotaged her one chance at romance.  When Tilly 
       proves manipulative and even 'malevolent', the happiness 
       of Isabel's household is threatened. And where the story 
       goes from there is pure unexpected delight. In The Foolish
       Gentlewoman, Margery Sharp provides us a thoughtful, funny,
       and terrifically entertaining slice of British life in the
       immediate aftermath of war.
