Summary

There was no doubt about it, Felicity Oldfield’s grand London adventure had commenced. First, she had been abducted by a peer of the realm, released, then in less than a few hours she had arrived in London for the post of governess, been cast off without a sou, walked the streets of London alone, been pursued by a young gentleman, met a man of bad character who might have led her onto a path of ruination, saved by a rich and fashionable couple in their velvet-lined coach, and was even now being taken to her mad Aunt Ellingham where she expected to be treated appallingly - maybe even sent to the kitchen to live a life of servitude. Like every heroine she had ever read about, Felicity had suffered....

In this sparkling Regency romance, we follow the suddenly-poor relation, Felicity, as she meets an unforgettable set of characters. Just when her good fortune seems assured, due to the kind acts of Lady Aurora and Mr. Wilbert Fenton, an earlier adventure with the Viscount of Durant is given an evil twist by his cousin and her reputation is damaged. Even Felicity's indomitable spirit of cheerfulness and kindness is almost overset, but her new friends have plans to save her. The Viscount is at a loss to help her, being recently engaged to his dear friend Anne Clarence. But he falls under the spell of Felicity's bravery and kindness, and a tangle of feelings occurs that it seems impossible to resolve....

Brilliant and witty

Loved every minute if it. Was upset when it came to the end. I've got more of her books saved on my list.

Quite a vivid trip into the Regency world - so beloved of Georgette Heyer fans

If you remember the old illustrations on Quality Street tins you will see the costumes of the era, including the occasional Shako topped dress uniform walking the streets of bye-gone London. Much research into the costumes and manners of the era has been woven into a startlingly well populated drama. A small amount of ‘suspension of disbelief’ might need to be indulged in - but who wouldn’t be happy to indulge the author for such a charming light-hearted story?

So much fun!

Super entertaining; the plot kept moving forward in fascination, funny, and gratifying ways. Thoroughly enjoyed this. All the characters were great and well developed.

Innocent young girl...

This story was about an innocent country girl going to the city who is accidentally put in a compromising position, and then when she gets to the city, is AGAIN put into another compromising position. It is only her fault in so far as she is so naive, but she is otherwise guiltless, and is persecuted by the "ton". She is gossiped about incessantly, and thus tortured by society, even though she is completely innocent of any wrong doing. She is thankfully taken under the wing of a couple from a previous book by Sarah M. Eden (it was so nice to see how this couple had turned out so respectably) and they as well as the male person that originally put her in a compromising position, work to get her out of this fix and to repair her damaged reputation. There are a few humourous situations, but not many. The narrator did a decent job reading the story. It was a bad story, but not one of my favorites!
