it was amazing
Read 4 times. Last read October 1, 2019 to October 7, 2019.

This is one of the nicest books I've read in a long while.
It's very quotidian; it essentially explores the first year of a marriage of convenience. But in watching the small details of the lives of a dozen people there are a lot of human truths revealed. This is one I will joyfully read again and again.

N Islam I haven't really read anything from Georgette Heyer other than the Grande Sophie. So you telling me that this is a great read, really excites me. I haven't read a Regency romance novel in a very long time.
