The Capable Wife

When the thirty one year old Duke of Avonbridge decides to take a wife, his focus is taken by an entirely unsuitable girl in her first season. Being uncertain if the girl is the wife for him he decides to go to Scotland and discuss the matter with his mother who is styled the formidable recluse as she has been secluded on the Glenavon estate since her husbands demise twelve years previously. The duchess gives her son the advice he should study the qualities of a capable wife as described in the scriptures and see if the girl matches up to them. She also announces she will go to London to look the girl over. Thus the lives of the Fleishman and Garsington families become entangled in ways they could never had envisaged.
