Trouble is brewing at Blandings Castle, home of the Earl Ernsworth, where scandal looms in the form of an unsuitable marriage between the Earl's nephew and a chorus girl.
Galahad Threepwood, the Earl's brother, is about to publish his 'kiss and tell' book which will ruin the family name.
Lady Constance, the Earl's sister, wants to stop both the marriage and the book, yet the Earl only seems to be concerned about his prize pig 'The Empress of Blandings'.
This is a wonderful tale of the elegant yet eccentric bygone world of the British aristocracy
