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?

Would you listen to The Grand Sophy again? Why?

Yes, because I enjoy the story, characters, and dialogue.

Did Sarah Woodward do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I thought she did better toward the end, but in general I found her timing rather strange and the characters almost indistinguishable.
