Virginius Littlepage is a lawyer working in Queensborough, Canada. Dejected and tired of life, he finds little solace in his family affairs and turns his attentions to his secretary, Milly Burden, in a last-ditch attempt to inject some spice in to his life. With the arrival of Littlepage s domineering daughter, who returns from a life of war work and philanthropy, comes a new series of interpersonal problems for all concerned. 'They Stooped to Folly' is an engrossing tale of love, loss, deceit and dedication guaranteed to pull the reader into the midst of the chaos caused by the problems of family, love, and duty.
