The Storm Of London

by Fernande Blaze De Bury

Our clothes tell our story. They reflect our rank, have to suit a perfect event, and much more. But what happens when they disappear? Sounds frightening, so thought the Earl of Somerville on the first day before sinking into this new reality which was in many respects better for him then the old reality. Through Lord Somerville, a man who only looks for someone to see himself behind his rank and lost in the game of the tun, we learn to see the many layers of the society in which he lives. Partially sad, partially funny, and full of universal truth, this book is sure to move you.
