Her plans for the matrimonial success of her new friend Harriet, however, lead her into complications that ultimately test her own detachment from the world of romance.

This is a wonderful recording of a beloved novel, read by the 1996 Mr. Knightley himself. I only wish it were an unabridged version, as so much had to be left out. Still an enjoyable listen, wee worth the Audible credit.

Resourceful, adventurous and utterly indefatigable, Sophy is hardly the mild-mannered girl that the Rivenhalls expect when they agree to take her in. Kind-hearted Aunt Lizzy is shocked; stern Cousin Charles and his humorless fiancée Eugenia are disapproving.With her inimitable mixture of exuberance and grace Sophy soon sets about endearing herself to her family, but finds herself increasingly drawn to her cousin. Can she really be falling in love with him, and he with her? And what of his betrothal to Eugenia?

This has been my favorite book by Georgette Heyer so far. Engaging storyline and characters, excellent performance by the reader.
