Review Text

No here and thereian but slap up to the mark is Georgette Heyer who has been playing variations on the Regency romance for lo these many years. Miss Wychwood, still unmarried though not yet "an ape leader," is almost thirty. Possessed of a considerable independence, she has left her brother's estate to set up housekeeping in Bath, chaperoned by the garrulous Miss Farlow who is "more like a skinned rabbit than a woman and a regular gabble grinder into the bargain." The rest is standard Heyer, as the beauteous Miss Wychwood takes a runaway seventeen year-old heiress under her wing and then falls inevitably in love with that young lady's guardian. The usual elegant trifle. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
