Old friends Monty and Ada worked together on the front line in Belgium: Monty was a nurse; Ada drove ambulances. Now, Bleakly Hall Hydropathic has brought them together again. Monty has arrived to look after the gouty residents taking the Hall's curative waters, via nozzle, douche and jet - and Ada is the maid and driver. For all those at Bleakly, the end of the Great War has brought changes - not all of them good. Monty has a score to settle with Captain Foxley; Ada misses her wartime sense of purpose and the Blackwood brothers must reinvigorate Bleakly for a new era. But with the crumbling, rumbling hydropathic threatening to blow its top, what will become of the folk thrown together in its bilious embrace?

Alice is left at home, curator to her father's monstrous collection of artefacts, under the watchful eye of the malevolent Dr Cattermole

Handbuch für anständige Mädchen Roman by Elaine DiRollo( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Was man als anständiges Mädchen wissen muss! Zu viel Gedankenfreiheit macht Frauen geschlechtsneutral - das behauptet zumindest Dr. Cattermole. Er weiss bestens Bescheid über das weibliche Gehirn. Auch über das der beiden energischen jungen Schwestern Alice und Lilian, die im England des Jahres 1857 gegen die Moralvorstellungen und das verkorkste Frauenbild ihrer Zeit ankämpfen. Und gegen die scheinheiligen Männer, die sie umgeben. Da ist ihr Vater, den eine ungeheure Sammelleidenschaft antreibt: Das monströse Haus ist mit Kuriositäten vollgestopft - für die Familie bleibt dabei kein Platz. Und da ist Dr. Cattermoles schüchterner Assistent, der kaum ein vernüftiges Wort herausbringt. Und schliesslich ist da Mr. Fraser, ein Missionar, der Lilian nach Indien verschleppt. Nur dank eines ausgetüftelten Geheimplans gelingt den Schwestern ein unglaublicher Coup. So erbringen sie den Beweis, dass das weibliche Gehirn so durchschaubar gar nicht ist ... Ein bisschen Frauenpower, ein bisschen Liebesroman, ein bisschen Schotts Sammelsurium - und jede Menge britischer Humor!
