WHAT THIS STORY IS ABOUT
Jill had money, Jill was engaged to be married to Sir Derek Underhill. Suddenly Jill becomes penniless, and she is no longer engaged. With a smile, in which there is just a tinge of recklessness, she refuses to be beaten and turns to face the world. Instead she went to New York and became a member of the chorus of “The Rose of America,” and Mr. Wodehouse is enabled to lift the curtain of the musical comedy world.
There is laughter and drama in Jill the Reckless, and the action never flags from the moment that Freddie Rooke confesses that he has had a hectic night, down to the point where Wally says briefly “Let 'em,” which is page 313.
