Picture of False Colours

False Colours

First Edition - 1963

Tatty and much mended dustwrapper.

It is the summer of 1817.  The Earl of Denville has been dead for fifteen mnths and has left behind a tricky state of affairs at the family seat of Ravenhurst.  His volatile widow has large secret debts; her twenty-four-year-old sons, Evelyn and Kit, are identical twins, but that is the least of their problems, for the old Earl, who had a low opinion of Evelyn's stability, has firmly placed the estate in the hands of a sole trustee, the inflexible Uncle Henry.  The imbroglios that follow spring from the twins' urgent need to rescue their entrancing but wholly irresponsible mother from her financial doldrums.
