For now he must send for the unknown offspring of the uncle whom the family are never permitted to mention. Yet none of that beleaguered family are prepared for the arrival of the weaver’s brat and heir apparent.

Eeeh, it's gradely
I was sorry to get to the end of this one. I only discovered the book ten or so years ago, no idea why I'd missed it in my teens. The whole mix of the normal Regency manners with down to earth Yorkshire ex-Army, plus the smugglers, is great, topped off by that frantic evening pulling the wool over the eyes of the poor conscientious Riding Officer. Daniel Philpott brings all the strands and characters together perfectly. Loved it.
