His fiancee, Claire, is the scourge of poor Bill's existence, although he hasn't caught onto that yet. She accepted his proposal to begin with because he was a man of title, and was disappointed to find that he had no fortune to accompany it. She now tries, to persuade him to earn money by what he considers underhanded means. Bill himself cares little for money, so when he inherits a million dollars from an eccentric whose golf game he once improved, his first thought is of the eccentric's cheated relatives in America, and he makes his way there with a view toward dividing the winnings with them somehow. Claire, unaware of this, is also on her way to America for a different purpose. The story involves several factions, paths cross, and misunderstandings.
Meanwhile, Dawlish slowly discovers that Claire might not be the girl for him. He feels affinity towards Elizabeth Boyd, who, with her brother, would have inherited the million dollars were it not for him. Elizabeth has no idea that her new friend Bill is the same Lord Dawlish who stepped in and inherited her fortune. The story focuses on their life and the Uneasy money.
Best part of story, including ending:
It's sweet, whimsical, and authentic story.
Best scene in story:
There are several memorable scenes including Bill dancing in a restaurant, Elizabeth trying to get Bill stung by bees.
Opinion about the main character:
I liked Elizabeth because unlike most female characters seen from a male perspective, she isn't merely around to fascinate, but to be liked and admired for her own sake. She is humorous, strong-willed, and unpredictable.
