When Mr. Tempest dies, the family fortune and estate pass to his son, John, whom everyone except John himself knows to be illegitimate.

One night, in a drunken stupor, he agrees to a bet, by which he will pay Đ10,000 if he should ever succeed to the Tempest estate. By the time he realizes that the effect of this wager was to place a bounty on John's head, it is too late-and attempts begin to be made on John's life! Meanwhile, Diana, strong and independent, has declared that she will never marry . . . but as she becomes closer with her cousin, her sentiments start to waver.

Notwithstanding by Mary Cholmondeley( )

28 editions published between 1913 and 2012 in English and German and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Notwithstanding offers all of the pleasures of an Austen novel, keen-eyed readers who read between the lines will detect a bit of healthy skepticism about the social institutions and mores
