Book Information

Eric, the weatherman at the Altoona Daily News, had no idea what was in store when he chose to pack a small suitcase with a few clothes and his gold watch and cufflinks left to him by his father. He set off for England, leaving his devoted and loving wife, Martha, alone and totally bewildered. A FINE HOW DO YOU DO is the story of his trip and the lives of those he encounters in Ambleside. Alma Boeld, a charming socialite in the Lake District, takes Eric under her wing. Alma’s unpredictable brother, her sensitive chauffeur, her two loyal maids, a deftly conniving acquaintance, and a mother with her precocious twelve-year-old daughter fill an eye-opening summer.
