    Summary

    As the new Duchess of Denver, Lady Peter (alias Harriet Vane) tells H. M. The Queen Mother about her changeable life and fate.
    A crossover from Dorothy Sayers' novels: "Strong Poison", "Gaudy Night", "Busman's honeymoon" to Jill Paton Walsh's novels: "Thrones and Dominations", "The Attenbury Emeralds". I highly admire the works of both the novelists, and am profoundly affected by Harriet Vane's lot.

    Pure fluff - about the year 1953.
