The Bachelor Summary

The Bachelor by Stella Gibbons

Brother and sister, Constance and Kenneth Fielding live in calm respectability, just out of reach of London and the Blitz. But when a series of uninvited guests converge upon them - from a Balkan exile to Ken's old flame and the siblings' own raffish father - the household struggles to preserve its precious peace. In this full house, in a quiet corner of suburbia, no one expects to find romance.

The Bachelor Reviews

[Gibbons has] a marvellous eye for the social scene - no-one is more accurate
Chipper is the word: Gibbons's heroines are plucky, determined and quietly hedonistic. But she can do melancholy with the best of them, too, not to mention melodrama * Guardian *
Stella Gibbons...an exception to that old canard: women can't make us laugh * Independent *
The Jane Austen of the 20th century -- Lynne Truss
Stella is stellar * Sunday Herald *
