Phoebe and Susan Throssel live a quaint existence in respectable Quality Street. With most of the eligible young men away at the Napoleonic wars, the women must make do with greedily consuming romance of the literary sort. All except Phoebe however, who has an admirer in the form of the young doctor, Valentine Brown. Love proves elusive when Valentine goes off to fight for King and Country leaving the Throssel sisters to lament the passing of their youth. On his return, mistaken identities leave Susan frantically attempting to hold off impending scandal, and the local gossips begin to wonder what on earth is going on in Quality Street. Fast paced with a delightfully fiendish plot, Quality Street is a charming blend of the warmth of Jane Austen and the wit of Oscar Wilde.
Suitable for ages 7+
