The story follows the adventures of a young man of illegitimate birth through a tale of love, deception and mistaken identity; a feast of human nature, served up in the plain and simple manner of the West Country with a high French and Italian seasoning of sex and vice. Will he gain his darling Sophia’s hand? Will he escape the hangman’s noose? Will he ever learn to keep it in his trousers?
