Publisher's Summary

Miles from anywhere, Darracott Place is presided over by irascible Lord Darracott. The recent drowning of his eldest son has done nothing to improve his temper. 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.

Completely delightful

What a pleasure to have one of my favourite Georgette Heyer books read to me by Daniel Philpott. Surely even macho men could enjoy this story of a muscular soldier and his struggle to get his "uppercrust" relations to accept him. Excellent story and an excellent narration.

Eeeh, it's gradely

Any additional comments?

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.
