A damsel in distress - electronic bk

When Lady Maud Marsh, a passionate young woman, admits to her affluent family that she is in love with a poor man, they forbid her from leaving the house. Having met the man, Geoffrey, the previous summer in Wales, Maud is set on marrying him, but will not tell her family who he is. George Bevan is a bored and lonely composer from America who has valiant dreams of helping a damsel in distress. One night, after seeing a play, he gets his wish. After calling a taxi for himself, Maud, who had been out with her family, jumps in before he can and asks him to hide her. Though he did not know who she was, George thought Maud was attractive, and decided to help. While he creates a distraction, Maud sneaks off in hope of seeing Geoffrey. However, she is unsuccessful. Soon after, George discovers Maud's identity and visits her at home. When the two begin to grow closer as friends, Maud's family assumes that George is the man she loves. They tell George as much, warning him to stay away. As Maud dreams of seeing Geoffrey again, George is hoping to ask for her hand in marriage, while neither realize that they've been immersed in a love triangle. With charming prose and masterful description, A Damsel in Distress by P.G Wodehouse is a hilarious and touching romance, filled with dramatic love triangles and misunderstandings. A Damsel in Distress has been adapted into several film formats, including a silent film and a musical. Featuring classic romance and delightful humor, this P.G Wodehouse narrative proves to be timeless
