Green Money

D. E. Stevenson is a niece of Robert Louis, and has inherited a portion of his literary talent. Green Money is one of dozens of her stellar novels, noted for its cozy friendliness and low-key romance: English between-the-wars at its best.

Green Money features George, an average gentleman of moderate means and decent instincts; his mother Paddy, Irish and horse-mad; his father Mr. Ferrier, a warm and detached scholar; and a host of neighbors, acquaintances, and chance-met Greens whose money sends George careening on hitherto unsuspected paths and finally into the arms of true love.

Completely anachronistic and entirely satisfying.
