Another Heyer even better in audio
Another pleasant surprise on several levels. Always one of her strong comedies, this is even better when narrated. Sian Phillips had always seemed to me like an actress of the 'theatrical grande dame' variety but she brought every character to life with real comedic style. Hester Theale is a great unlikely heroine, self-effacing and nervous but with hidden depth and humour. The wildly naive Amanda with her stories, determination and would be military strategy, her dour lover Neil, and all the supporting characters are well drawn. Oddly enough, the hero Gareth is sometimes more like a central point around which the others perform than the focal point, but it all works. It really does. Recommended.
