Madcap by George Gibbs is a delightful romp of a novel, full of humor, surprises, and unanticipated twists. The protagonist, a young woman named Mary, finds herself in a series of absurd and often hilarious situations as she navigates the social mores of early 20th-century America.

Gibbs has a knack for capturing the essence of the time period, with vivid descriptions and sharp dialogue that bring the setting to life. The supporting characters are just as engaging as Mary, adding depth and complexity to the story. The pacing is fast and the plot is full of unexpected turns, keeping the reader on their toes until the very end.

Overall, Madcap is a charming and witty novel that is sure to entertain readers looking for a light-hearted and enjoyable read. Gibbs has created a world that is both familiar and fantastical, and the result is a thoroughly enjoyable book that is hard to put down.

Book Description:
Quote: "To the quiet Titine her mistress created an impression of bringing not only herself into the room, but also the violent horse and the whole of the out-of-doors besides." --Chapter 1 of Madcap. --In the same chapter, Hermia Challoner, this force of nature pitted against the nature of her social milieu, laughingly tells her maid, "Better die living--than be living dead."

--And thus starts the beginning of an early 20th century quest for something beyond the bored and politely veiled cynicism of class and wealth; beyond oneself. --Add to that a little mischief, a bit of Puckish misdirection. And a bit of romance.
