    Captain John Staple’s exploits in the Peninsula had earned him the sobriquet Crazy Jack amongst his fellows in the Dragoon Guards. Now home from Waterloo, life in peacetime is rather dull for the adventure-loving Captain. But when he finds himself lost at an unmanned toll-house in the Pennines, his soldiering days suddenly pale away beside an adventure - and romance - of a lifetime.

    What did you love best about The Toll-Gate?

    Georgette Heyer's most enjoyable romances are always the ones with a mystery entwined in the story. The mystery in The Toll-Gate is particularly well constructed, and it is both historically based and very comprehensible to the modern reader.


    What about Daniel Hill’s performance did you like?

    Daniel Hill does a very good job of keeping the voices distinct, and the reading is fluent and easy to listen to. The novel is full of extraordinary characters, and Hill's reading captures them well
