4.0 out of 5 stars Whimsical and Unashamedly Romantic 16 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Hasty sisters, Rufa, Nancy, Lydia and Selina, are all gorgeous, pre-Raphaelite beauties, especially the two eldest sisters, Rufa and Nancy, with their auburn locks and translucent skin. They live with their "bonkers as conkers" mother in their ancient, crumbling family home, coping as best they can with the fall-out from their father's suicide, which has left them heavily in debt and about to be ousted from their beloved home. Having been brought up by two eccentric, bohemian parents, who have never regarded an academic education necessary for their daughters, the Hasty sisters are ill-equipped to go out into the world and earn enough money to support themselves and to save the family home. So what can our girls do?

Rufa, who is the most sensible of the sisters, realizes that if their only inheritance is their incredible good looks, then these must be put to the best possible use by ensnaring very rich and compliant husbands.

5.0 out of 5 stars unputdownable 26 Mar 2005
By A Customer
I was intrigued because I had read columns by Kate Saunders during her career with the Daily Telegraph and wanted to see how she was at novels (I was not disappointed!) Sometimes a large book goes through a phase of being hard going but the story captures the reader in the first few pages and throughout the story brings all the characters entirely to life - I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more by Kate Saunders.
