ETA commute listen with my daughter 122018Still very fine and I loved the shared laughter as Cordy experienced Lady Hester s very sly wit She really hated Amanda though and struggled with her willful flightsThis remains one of my very favorite Georgette Heyer romances Sir Gareth is such a delight as he struggles with Amanda s exploits Their repartee is fantastic without even hinting that they should end up together thank heavens I like Hester so much better than the explosively willful ing nue And Hester is such an intriguing character as well Her sly humor buried under her meek exterior has some truly fine moments even early on before we ve gotten to know how intolerable her situation really is and how much worse off she would be married to the man she loves if he doesn t also love her even if that man is Sir Gareth All of the secondary characters fit their respective roles well from Hildebrand as invalid support to Lady Wid s gauche raillery It all adds up to a delightful read with a very satisfying resolution
