    Charity Girl is one of Georgette Heyer s later and lesser offerings, but I still found it a fairly amusing and engaging read Thirty year old Viscount Ashley Desford, after getting chewed out by his ailing father for not getting married to Henrietta Hetta Silverdale, the neighbor his father picked out for him years ago I love her, but only like a sister, is Desford s excuse , takes off to visit his aunt She invites him to join her at a small, country ball being held at the home of her neig

    Is this even a Heyer novel What is this Okay, alright, I know I m being harsh The quality is there The gorgeous writing is there The delightful slang, elegant turn of phrases and general Heyer feels are there BUT Who on earth are those flat, boring, two dimensional characters What the heck is that plot Where is all the fun The humour, the sparkle, the wit After having read such masterpieces as These Old Shades,

    Wow The first Heyer I geniunely, completely disliked The plot has been done much better before By Heyer Many times There were no hijinx Just an annoying search for equally annoying, selfish, awful people who weren t even amusing to hear about The characters were barely people, and when they were, they were terrible or irritating, with the possible exception of the hero, and that s only because he s off stage or being perfect the whole book I didn t want to spend time with any of these pe Wow The first He

    Not one of Heyer s best, but an enjoyable read This one is mostly a comedy of manners, and while it s never laugh out loud funny, I read it with a smile on my face.The romance is quite weak, although I was glad that the story didn t go in the direction I first expected These are not modern romances so you must be prepared to enjoy the spectacle of wealthy gentlemen coming to the rescue of hapless females, but Heyer usually comes through with a balanced match.The prose does bog down a little wh Not one of Heyer

    After rereading The Foundling Cousin Kate having an improved opinion of both, I did hope my assessment of Charity Girl would improve I didn t expect to like this novel, mind, but hoped to find it an average read Wrong Charity Girl is still terrible owes a lot to The Foundling Sprig Muslin both far better books Reading Kloester s biography it sounds like GH wasn t well when she wrote this genuinely thought she had written a good book To be honest I had hoped on her usual diet of After rereading The Foundling Cousin Kat

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I enjoyed reading Charity Girl very much but this is the first Heyer book I have read that slogged through the middle before bringing me to a delightful conclusion I am a true fan of Georgette Heyer s clean romances and even though this is not her best offering, I still crossed the finish line with a smile More a comedy of manners than a romance, Charity Girl has a buffet of regency slang terms that kept me in good humor throughout the entire nar

    1.5I ll just leave this as an explanation for myself I cannot believe the same person wrote The Grand Sophy wrote this You never get the feeling of who should be together One of the positive things in this story is the hero himself He is rarely with the heroine since he is trying to solve Cherry s problem so that could be the reason The rest of them are as annoying as they can get I neither liked snobbish Henrietta, nor Cherry one of the dumbest characters I ve come across in fiction Ev 1.5I ll just leave this as an explanation for

    Another enjoyable read from Heyer but not one of her best I think Other than Des running around the country like a headless chicken, not a lot happens It s muchdialogue than action but the dialogue is brilliant as usual This is one where the romance almost happens off the page It s insinuated and early on we realise that view spoiler Hetta loves Des hide spoiler but is keeping it to herself I like Des A good man who does all he can in his power to help people in need Lady Sil Another enjoyable read from Heyer but not one of her best I thi

    Charity Girl is one of Heyer s last novels, and one of the ones with amature hero and heroine which means the romance is so subdued as to be invisible to some readers But it s quite to my liking, being about friendship and trust, compatibility and companionship.Ashley Carrington, Lord Desford, has been on the town nearly a decade and has avoided parson s mousetrap His parents tried to arrange a marriage for him in his youth, to his childhood friend Lady Henrietta Silverdale, but they we Charity Girl is one of Heyer s last novels, and one of the

    A fine, good Heyer s Regency novel One of shorter One of her last and I could have seen her professional pen here One may say Good job.Yes, I have noticed many similarities with her other stories, e.g The Foundling , but it didn t bother me because I found here engaging characters Simon was like some splendid heroes from her other romances, Lady and Lord Wroxton had an interesting own story I am sure and so beloved Heyer s language dialogues.In my opinion, this book had also something im A fine, good Heyer s Regency novel One of shorter One of her last
