THE STORY IS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM THE USUAL ROMANTIC STORIES.SO IS THE HEROINE CLUNY BROWN.
HERE IS THE BLURB, WHICH IS PRETTY LONG.

From the dust jacket: Colonel Duff-Graham, in his innocence, fondly believed he was doing his neighbors at Friars Carmel a favor in delivering their new parlor maid. Ensconced in the back seat of his Rolls-Royce, Cluny Brown viewed her new role as a parlor maid cheerfully, if not with resignation. At least something was happening to her. It was Cluny's prime object in life to keep something happening, and something happening to Cluny usually meant trouble for everyone else concerned, as Uncle Arn, a highly respectable London plumber, could have told her waiting employers. "The trouble with young Cluny," Uncle Arn frequently pointed out, "is she don't know her place." 
As though Cluny's debut as a maid were not enough for Friars Carmel to absorb, two guests arrived immediately. One was Betty Cream, lovely London debutante, currently pursued in vain by Andrew, the Carmel son and heir. The other was none other than the distinguished Adam Belinski, well-known author, lecturer, and Polish politician in exile. 

With Belinski there, Cluny could not justly be held responsible for all the upheaval that shook Friars Carmel harder than any blow dealt since the Norman Conquest in 1066. Some of the time she wasn't even around. 

She was walking out with Titus Wilson, village chemist like any proper parlor maid. Belinski, on the other hand, was always around until Andrew began to fear that he was a permanent fixture. This combination of circumstances went from bad to worse until it managed to drive Betty into hysteria, drive the amiable Titus into a shell, and provoke the gentlemanly Andrew to great wrath. T
he sudden solution for the havoc which Cluny and Belinski produced is not only an astonishment to all concerned but also a source of amazement to themselves. Cluny Brown is the humorous, warmly moving story of a love between a girl who didn't know her place and a man who had none.

THE STORY REALLY STARTS WHEN THE PROTAGONIST CLUNY BROWN  STARTS WORKING AT 'FRIARS CAMELS' MANSION AS A MAID.

THEN THE STORY STARTS REVOLVING AROUND  ANDREW, HIS LOVER AND THE POLISH PROFESSOR WHO HE BRINGS ALONG WITH HIM.

CLUNY TAKES A LIKING TO THE LOCAL DOCTOR, WHO AS WE CAN SEE IN THE BOOK IS A PERFECT GENTLEMAN. 
AS TIME ADVANCES WE CAN SEE ALL THE LOVE STORIES FALLING IN PLACES AND CLUNY GETS READY TO MARY THE DOCTOR.
THIS IS WHERE THE PLOT STARTS TO TURN.


NO! I AM NOT GOING TO SAY THE CLIMAX. YOU CAN GET THE BOOK FROM A NEARBY  STORE AND READ OR DOWNLOAD IT ONLINE.
