Love on a Branch Line by John HadfieldJasper Pye, the man from the Ministry, is about to embark on his final mission as a civil servant, before escaping drab 1950s London for Paris and the life of an artist. He is to be sent to Arcady.
Arcady, the county seat of Lord Flamborough, where the ministry has its offices, is inhabited by a glorious host of eccentrics, while Lord Flamborough himself resides in a private railway train where he listens to jazz and mixes cocktails. His three daughters - Chloe, Belinda and Matilda - are all blissfully free of inhibitions, which has a liberating effect on the rather stuffy Mr. Pye.
Before he knows it, Mr. Pye is participating in a heroic drinking session, followed by an even more heroic cricket match, painting a nude model, judging a beautiful ankles competition, and generally learning that there is a lot more to life than London in the rain...
