5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book to read again and again, 25 July 2005
This review is from: The Nonesuch (Paperback)
I'm currently going through a phase of reading Georgette Heyer novels (great fun) and of the fifteen or so that I've read to date, this is definitely my favourite.
Once again, Heyer provides a quiet heroine who wins the hero through her intelligence and manner, rather than astonishing beauty. In this book, the Astonishing Beauty gets her come-uppance.
Waldo Hawkridge is perhaps rather less flawed than most human beings, but the gentle romance between him and Ancilla Trent is lovely to read.
The usual cast of amusing characters, great language and amusing escapades makes this book well worth reading. I heartily recommend it.
