The Grand Sophy Summary

The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer

When the redoubtable Sir Horace Stanton-Lacy is ordered to South America on Diplomatic Business he parks his only daughter Sophy on his sister in Berkeley Square. But Sophy's cousins are in a sad tangle. The heartless and tyrannical Charles is betrothed to a pedantic bluestocking almost as tiresome as himself; Cecilia is besotted with a beautiful but quite feather-brained poet; and Hubert has fallen foul of a money-lender. It looks like the Grand Sophy has arrived just in time to save them all ... The undisputed queen of historical romance shows in Grand Sophy all the wonderful storytelling that won her a huge, devoted readership, which continues to this day.

The Grand Sophy Reviews

"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 *
"Sparkling" * The Independent *
