Dornford Yates's first two novels - Anthony Lyveden and Valerie French - were about the awful fate of the gentleman ex-officer who had to earn his living in domestic service. More melodrama comes from an enchanted forest and employers from the lower classes. There's a tortured love story too. For readers who like their noblesse obliged in strong doses.

there was a shelf of Dornford Yates in my school library: really bizarre introduction to the world for grammar school girls of the 1950's.I was completely seduced. A pleasure to see that you're recommending him to others less fortunate in their early reading! Mary Hamer Kipling & Trix, winner of the Virginai Prize for Fiction
