The story of Enter Sir Robert unfolds, however, in two of the less-frequented of her Barsetshire communities, Hatch End, a small village in the valley of the Rising River, and Little Misfit, three of four miles away. Each village is home to one of the two families-the Hallidays and the Grahams-whose unmarried children provide the romantic interest that sets the plot spinning. Mrs. Thirkell did not begin writing novels until her return to Britain in 1930; then, for the rest of her life, she produced a new book almost every year until her death in 1961.

She has three nice young men interested in her, and she is tiresome to each one, as well as dashing off to America instead of sticking to her college course. Mr Cross of the bank turns out to be a gentleman and George Halliday's new best friend, but otherwise not very much happens, not even an engagement. But Sir Robert Graham finally comes home.

The book begins with Lady Graham's announcement of the imminent return of the elusive Sir Robert Graham and ends as Sir Robert enters the house. What happens in between is more than usually "Much Ado About Nothing". We meet Vicar Choyce whose vacillation is matched by Lady Graham's vagueness (as she becomes more and more like Lady Emily). An article appeared in the Cornhill Magazine in November 1921 and was the first of many articles and short stories, including work for Australian radio.

In December 1918, Angela married George Lancelot Allnut Thirkell (1890–c . 1940), an engineer of her own age originally from Tasmania, and in 1920 they sailed for Australia together with her sons. Their son Lancelot George Thirkell, later Comptroller of the BBC, was born there, but, in November 1929, Angela left her husband without warning, returning to England on the pretext of a holiday, but in fact quitting Australia for good. Lacking money, she begged the fare to London from her godfather, J. M. Barrie, and used the sum intended for her return ticket.

In her modern Barsetshire chronicles, the author returns to her familiar haunts to concoct another lively tale of village society and family life, spiced with the yearnings and hesitations of a characteristically cross-purposed cast of lovers. Thirkell begins by addressing her reader with a nod to the predictable pleasures her novels promise. The story of Enter Sir Robert unfolds, however, in two of the less-frequented of her Barsetshire communities, Hatch End, a small village in the valley of the Rising River, and Little Misfit, three of four miles away. Each village is home to one of the two families--the Hallidays and the Grahams--whose unmarried children provide the romantic interest that sets the plot spinning.First published more than four decades ago and long unavailable to American readers, Enter Sir Robert joins the many volumes previously issued in Moyer Bell's continuing series of continuing series of Angela Thirkell publications.
