This story is all about the Pig contests that used to be famous in the olden days. The story revolves around the 2 Families, The "Emsworth" family of Blandings Castle & The "Parsloes" of The Matchingham Hall. It goes about like this. The "Empress" has been the winner of the conquest for the past 2 years. But, Sir Gregory Parsloe who's been the runner now imports "The Queen of Matchingham" & Challenges Lord Emsworth about his assured Victory the present year.
So the story is all about how Galahad steals Gregory of his pig & how Gregory retaliates to it & finally everything ends well for the Emsworth Family. In between this pig story there is many a love stories that go on in the Blandings Castle between,
- 'Penny Donaldson' of the Royal Family & 'Jerry Vail' an author who is yet to make his Fortunes.
- 'Gloria Salt' a tennis player & 'Lord Vosper' a tennis player & also engaged to Penny Donaldson.
- 'Maudie' a widower & X-Lover of Gregory & 'Gregory Parsloe' who was engaged with Glorai Salt.
Thus, the story is all about how these 3 pairs confirm their soul-mates after going through a series of tests & difficulties & finally find their Right Match.
