Description

"Triumphantly good?Georgette Heyer is unbeatable." ? India Knight, Sunday Telegraph An impetuous flight... Tiffany Wield's bad behavior is a serious trial to her chaperone. "On the shelf " at twenty-eight, Ancilla Trent strives to be a calming influence on her tempestuous charge, but then Tiffany runs off to London alone and Ancilla is faced with a devastating scandal. A gallant rescue... Sir Waldo Hawkridge, confirmed bachelor and one of the wealthiest men in London, comes instantly to the aid of the intrepid Ancilla to stop Tiffany's flight, and in the process discovers that it's never too late for the first bloom of love. "A writer of great wit and style? I've read her books to ragged shreds." Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph WHAT READERS SAY ABOUT THE NONESUCH: "A lovely, entertaining read, full of deliciously entertaining character studies, witty dialogue, a gentle secondary romance and, of course, the main love story. This is another of Heyer's 'older heroine' novels, subtle, romantic, and very enjoyable. Highly recommended!" "One of the wittiest stories Heyer has concocted, that will have you chuckling to yourself." "The same flashes of wit, the wonderful dialogue, and the ridiculous intrigue that are all the ingredients of a first-rate Georgette Heyer." "No other novelist recreates the manners, dress, behaviour, and language of the Regency period as well as [Georgette Heyer] did." "Heyer moves into Austen territory?delightfully!"

Professional reviews

"Readers who enjoy Regency Romances still recognize Georgette Heyer as tops in the field. Eve Matheson adds to the pleasure of this story through the flexibility of her voice and tone. It's a treat to hear the starched-up dowagers, the self-important and often pompous men, the young girls just out of the schoolroom, the minor characters and, of course, the hero and heroine of the novel. The language of the early 1800's is fascinating, and the audiobooks provides an excellent example of high society during that period. D.M.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
