Habits of the House by Fay Weldon, 314 pages, read by Tracy, on 01/26/2013

This book was a lot of fun, not to be taken seriously. The rich elite in Victorian England usually don’t have a real job. They invest money they don’t have or money they inherited from the wife’s family. When things go wrong with the investments they try to marry their eldest son into money. The family in this series has a title so they try to set up the son with a young American lady who’s father is rich. Everyone has a secret that could be scandalous but there are ways to keep it covered up. Can’t wait for the next book.

    I just loved Fay Weldon’s book, The Life and Loves of a Female She-Devil, wicked laugh out loud humor. I tried a few others of her books, and decided Life and Loves… was out of the norm for her.
