Publisher's Summary

Sir Clement Carnell was the most domineering and strait-laced of fathers, and his death has left his grown children, Louisa and Valentine, with a sense of release. While Valentine throws open the Devonshire estate of Pennacombe to their fashionable cousins from London, Louisa feels free at last to reject the man her father chose as her prospective husband - Pearce Lynley.
Soon the temptations of Regency London beckon - including Lady Harriet Eversholt, beautiful, scandalous, and very married, with whom Valentine becomes dangerously involved; while Louisa finds that freedom of choice is as daunting as it is exciting. Will the opportunity to indulge, at last, in a little folly lead to fulfilment - or disaster?

The story isn't as good as the narrator.

I was looking for an heir to Georgette Heyer, this is sadly not it. Whilst Jude Morgan writes impeccably in the style of a Jane Austen novel, the characters did not really resonate with me, the plot seemed convoluted and rushed. I will give his writing another go, but mostly because Phyllida Nash reads them so enchantingly.

Good solid book

Sound story. A bit sad to start with during the brother and sisters formative years. A bit of a slog to get to the end. Could have shortened the first half of book. Nothing outstanding to refer to other than its a comfortable listen on a winters night. The narration is excellent and enabled me to listen to the end.
