This is a brilliant book giving a great insight into everyday life in that period. G. Heyer and Austen only concentrated on the upper echelons of society but understood how each class interacted with the others. You get a palpable feel of how life was at the time, although the misery of the rural poor and the factory workers is only hinted at.
It should be prescribed reading for anyone attempting a Regency novel, then maybe we would be spared some of the howlers that occur, particularly in some American books!
