Haughty Lady Helen Radney is one of London's most beautiful women, and the daughter of a duke, but her sharp tongue has frightened away most of her suitors. When her father gambles away his fortune, the duke's only chance for recouping his losses lies in marrying off Lady Helen to any man wealthy enough to take a bride with nothing to recommend her but a lovely face and an 800-year-old pedigree.
Enter Mr. Ethan Brundy: once an illegitimate workhouse orphan, now owner of a Lancashire textile mill and one of England's richest men. When he glimpses Lady Helen at Covent Garden Theatre, he is instantly smitten and vows to marry her. But this commonest of commoners will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to win the heart of his aristocratic bride.

Charming Regency tale with likeable leads

The author writes very much in the vein of Georgette Heyer and, like her, develops some fascinating characters. Mr Brundy is very sympathetically written, from first thinking he's a clod, like the heroine we learn to appreciate his strengths and end up rooting for them both.

There are some laugh out loud moments and some very moving ones. There is plenty of 'event' along the way, and we learn enough about the leads to leave us speculating about their earlier lives and what will happen to them next.

While there are nods to earlier writers, the originality of the lead characters leaves this feeling fresh. When we do see a little 'beyond the bedroom door', it is deftly handled and helpful to the plot.

The American author uses a plausible back story to give Mr Brundy a generic working class English accent, avoiding the pitfalls of trying to write dialect, and the narrator makes him attractively softly spoken. There are a few American pronunciations of place names, but if the novel is seen as an American homage to an English institution, these become charming too!

I thoroughly enjoyed this humorous, well-narrated book. I loved the hero's dry wit -- the heroine's sarcastic wit.

I'm not going to say too much except it was very entertaining, because in my opinion the introduction to the story gave more information than this listener needed. The story flowed well, the characters were well defined. It's a light, feel-good book. The narrator was effectively chosen.

I'm batting a thousand on my last three books, I couldn't be more pleased with my recent selections.

I highly recommend "The Weaver Takes A Wife"!

A True Classic 🌟

I read this book when it was released years ago and I loved it. I'm so glad I revisited this one on audio. What a treat! 😋

This is such a wonderful memorable story that is filled with delightful characters. Lady Helen Radney is a mean spirited, rude and snobbish young woman and Mr Ethan Brundy is a generous, forgiving, patient, gentle, ordinary man. They make the most unlikely couple but ultimately the most ideal This story is endearing, sweet and surprisingly fun. The writing is superb and the narration is perfect. I highly recommend this for everyone who enjoys a clean classic story.💑

My sincere thanks to the author, narrator or publisher for providing me this audio book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. 📚
