Publisher's Summary

Miles from anywhere, Darracott Place is presided over by irascible Lord Darracott. The recent drowning of his eldest son has done nothing to improve his temper. For now he must send for the unknown offspring of the uncle whom the family are never permitted to mention. Yet none of that beleaguered family are prepared for the arrival of the weaver’s brat and heir apparent.

©1959 Georgette Heyer (P)2014 Audible, Inc.

    "Delightfully humorous"

    Light entertaining tale with much to say about the blindness of presuppositions. Readers accents a bit labored at times.

    "Not my favorite Heyer but nicely done."

    I enjoyed listening to this whispersync selection. This isn't my favorite of Heyer's, but it's fun and the performance is nice.

    "The wonderful accents by the narrator add so much!"

    This is such a funny book and the wonderful accent the narrator gives the characters, especially the hero, add so much to the enjoyment of the book. I think I would have missed a great deal of the humor if I had simply just read it, as it's an integral part of the story. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite Heyers!

    "Delightful!"

    I love a book that can make me laugh out loud. They are few and far between and are so very special. A great cast of characters and a hero that changes the people around him by his affable, non-judgmental attitude. The farcical last few chapters were simply hilarious.
