IF you're into plot, this probably isn't for you. I kept waiting for some big revelation or plot development that never occured. It's very well-written and mostly a character study of a family and its individual members. It looks at several different events in the life of the family through eyes of various family members. (I kept expecting the events to be revealed to be "bigger" than they actualy were).
I already have twice
I started reading/listening to Georgette Heyer about 4 years ago and just fell into the rabbit hole. It's all I wanted to read/listen to. This one is my favorite because I laughed out loud and it was somewhat less predictable than the others (not that predictability takes away from enjoyment of those others-much). I think I may have teared up at a few points too, and I'm pretty jaded generally. I also love The Unknown Ajax and The Black Sheep. If you are just starting with Georgette Heyer, start with one of those, as they are more in her typical mold, and save this one for a "palate cleanser" when you want one that is less typical.
