I do hope you’ll be able to come over on Wednesday. The enthusiasm could be heard echoing around the walls of my small sitting room. I had not had time to consider the significance of the conversation before a thunderous goodbye ricocheted from the fireplace and the line went dead. r, ‘Lord Leghorn is the tenth earl and owns most of the Russetshire estate personally,’ he began. The other estates are held in family trusts and we report to the trustees on matters concerning those. You probably know that Lord Leghorn suffered a serious stroke a few years ago. Although he’s now in very good health his wife still has considerable influence on what we do here,’ he explained.

The inspiration for 'You've Done What, My Lord?' comes from the wide variety of eccentrics he has met through his work for the landed gentry. Oddly enough this was a better reading experience when under the wrong impression that it was a non-fiction set of memoirs and anecdotes. It was pleasant but several humorous scenes were cut short rather than diving into outright farce.

James applies for the job of deputy estate agent for a large estate in central England. He is in for a surprise at the odd things that will occur in his new role. He has to deal with the lady of the estate taking money out of their accounts to support redecorating in the main house and tea room that are open to tourists, rogue sheep, and a lord who while well intentioned, really only has interests in his pet projects and not the management of the estate as a whole. There are some positives to his new life, including a lovely young girl, Sophie, who works in the office with him. He manages to negotiate his position, and juggle a slightly precarious relationship with Sophie, while maintaining a good sense of humor and building his own mini farm as well. While this is a pleasant, light read, the title probably should not boast of hilarious tales.

Some interesting descriptions of how a large, English estate functions and some mildly amusing incidents, but if you are looking for John Cleese style hilarity, this isn't it.

It also isn't All Creatures Great and Small with its warmth and wisdom.
