  • Charming Dec 1, 2011
    by Vera M

    Who doesn't want to believe in fairy tales...

    Witty tale, well defined characters and charming language. Heyer's little gems let us forget bad days.
    Good read for teenagers, who will wish to read all of Heyer's books, wich, in return, will positively influence their behavior.

    by GoluxGirl

    The general summary provided on this site doesn't do justice to the plot. Ancilla Trent, governess to the Beauty, Theophania (called Tiffany) Wield, and her cousins, is not looking forward to the arrival of London beau Sir Waldo Hawkridge. His presence will be a sure disruption to the hard-won (and often discarded) discipline she strives to teach her headstrong charge. And when she learns he plans to fix up his newly inherited country home as a home for "orphans" (code for 'bastard children of the haute ton' to many in that era) she is truly appalled at both his brazen effrontery and abandonment of those he ought to care for more responsibly.
    Sir Waldo, for his part, is looking forward to an escape to the country. He is quite taken by the pretty and forthright governess. But how is he supposed to counter her hostility when he doesn't understand it's source?
    Funny, charming, and full of (accurate!) historical details, this story is another take on first impressions and the damage caused by listening to gossip.
