Fleur:

‘This is jolly froth of the highest degree! So quintessentially of it’s time, it’s a perfect read for a Sunday afternoon. A way to forget reality and imagine yourself a child again, playing out the adult life you might have imagined for yourself aged 9 or 10 when you were deep into the adventures of plucky orphans – if only it were possible to make a living from selling flowers from your font door…’

It’s 1919 and Jane and her cousin Lucilla leave school to find that their guardian has gambled away their inheritance, but left them with a small cottage outside London. Determined to become successful businesswomen, the cousins embark on a series of misadventures – setting up a flower shop, a guest house, and ignoring the attentions of male admirers – in a bid to secure their independence.
