520    "In the spring of 1939, with the Second World War looming,
       two determined twenty-four-year-olds, Heather Jenner and 
       Mary Oliver, decided to open a marriage bureau. They found
       a tiny office on London's Bond Street and set about the 
       delicate business of matchmaking. Drawing on the bureau's 
       extensive archives, Penrose Halson—who many years later 
       found herself the proprietor of the bureau—tells their 
       story, and those of their clients."--Back cover.
