"Sparkling" * Independent * "My favourite historical novelist - stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours." * Margaret Drabble * "Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to." * Katie Fforde * "A writer of great wit and style.... I've read her books to ragged shreds." * Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph * "Georgette Heyer is unbeatable" * India Knight * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I found myself feeling sorry for Adam throughout even more so than the 2 main female characters. I really felt his suffering throughout the book. I think in presenting Julia and Jenny, Heyer presented 2 opposite extremes of character. One is all sense and no sensibility without a single redeeming physical attribute, while the other is all sensibility and not much sense. This books is a sort of blend where Sense and Sensibility meets The Age of Innocence.
If it is any other writer- I would give 1 star....
