The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer, published 1950
Historical Fiction, Regency Period
Read December 2011
4 Stars out of 5
Excellent look at the regency period in England with its social rules. The book takes the reader on a fun ride with those that follow rules strictly and those that walk outside the rules. I found it to be a quick read, but I was still engaged with the characters and the story, it was not a throw away. I especially wanted to see what kind of trouble Sophy could get in next! As with many of Georgette Heyer's books, I wish there was a bit more at the end. I feel that the story ends rather abruptly.
I would let my 13 year old read this.
