Witty, charming and wonderfully read.

Georgette Heyer was a favourite author of mine as a teenager, but Cotillion was never one of my favourites then. It is now! The immaculate reading by Phyllida Nash brings out all the wit and charm of this book. As with the best Heyer books, the sparkling dialogue, immaculate descriptions, authentic period detail and comic set-pieces make this book a joy to listen to. It is like eating the finest meringue - light, delicate and delicious!

Excellent narration

I am very fond of this novel, and I thought the narrator did it credit - her narrative voice was clearly distinguished from those of the characters, which were themselves quite distinct, without ever being overacted. I found much in it to enjoy when taken at this leisured pace, and would look for other titles by this narrator again.
