Publisher's Summary

Horatia Winwood is the youngest and the least attractive of the three Winwood sisters. She also has a stammer. But when the enigmatic and eminently eligible Earl of Rule offers for her oldest sister’s hand – a match that makes financial and social sense, but would break her heart – it is Horatia who takes matters into her own impetuous hands. Can she save her family’s fortune? Or is she courting disaster? Witty, charming, elegant, and always delightful, Georgette Heyer – the undisputed queen of Regency Romance – brings the whole period to life with deft precision and glorious characters.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

A Radio Play of a Narration

An interesting, and slightly subdued version of Georgette Heyer's novel, superbly interpreted by an excellent British actor. This version is easier to believe than the full text, and a charming listen. Mr Armitage's capacity to give voice to young ladies is a joy, whilst continuing to use his natural timbre for clearly tall, robust, male characters, and managing camp males too. The other two of Miss Heyer's novels read Mr Armitage have fewer characters, and less Regency Romp: this really is read as if my a series of players. Enjoy.
