  • Priklucheniya Salli by N. Budina: 2003

Life was always simple for Sally Nicholas - until she became rich.

Being unaccustomed to owning a great deal of money, Sally hasn't got the hang of it yet. Which is why she agrees to backing a show written by her fiance Gerald and staged by her brother Fillmore. It seems like a good way of making them all happy... But when Ginger Kemp, a rather hopeless, charming young man Sally met in Roville, appears in America and offers not-very-glad tidings about Gerald, he really puts the cat among the pigeons.
