But when her love-life became complicated she called in Julia's assistance. . Julia was warm-hearted and impulsive, and in her relations with men she was extremely incautious. . Her entanglement with six trapeze artists on her way to her daughter; her efforts to keep up with the high standard set up by her mother-in-law; and her meeting with the tall, distinguished Sir William, her daughter's guardian, make a rich, amusing and lovable book.
