The Incredible Honeymoon (Paperback)
Edward has inherited some money, and he decides he'd like to tramp around England a bit. At his first stop he befriends a young boy and builds him a toy airplane. But his country idyll takes an adventurous turn when he happens upon a young woman who seems to be unnaturally nervous about her home life. At their third meeting when they are just about to be discovered by her tyrannical aunt, he proposes that she should elope with him.
