Georgette Heyer writes with skill, wit and her plotting is superb. Is is easy to denigrate a the genre of regency romances but there are writers and there are writers. Georgette Heyer is one of the delights of my reading life, I wish I had found her long ago, sadly I only came to her books a few years ago.
It is wonderful to me that they are all being re-printed in this lovely mass-market series, I thank the publisher and promise them I have bought them all. Which is my favorite? Close call there but I think Frederica wins with Sprig Muslin and Grand Sophy tied for second.
This was Miss Heyer's first book, written when she was (I think) 15 to amuse her brother who was sick. It shows that she is young yet all the elements are there, if not yet honed they are clearly present. I always adore her characters and these are no exception.
It is interesting to me, as much as I like her females leads, in her books, it is her men I dearly love. I suspect Georgette Heyer and I had the same taste in men.
I recently read an biography of Georgette Heyer, usually getting to know an author too well takes away from my enjoyment but not Georgette Heyer.
She was an interesting woman, deep and deeply private. Witty, strong and the backbone of her family. She only authorized one picture of her to be used, and that was reluctantly done. It is an odd picture of her, very old fashioned and restrained.
In reality she was a fashionable woman. tall and striking. Do a net search on her and check out some of her other pictures floating around out there, you will be amazed at who she really was as opposed to who she chose to show her readers she was.
A complex and interesting woman, a fine writer.
