When Sophy goes to stay with her cousins in Berkeley Square, she finds them in a sad tangle of affairs - some romantic and others of a more pecuniary nature. Perhaps the Grand Sophy has arrived just in time to save them.About the Author:
Georgette Heyer's novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades. English Heritage has awarded Georgette Heyer one of their prestigious Blue Plaques, designating her Wimbledon home as the residence of an important figure in British history. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success.
Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. A very private woman, she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or personal life. Her work included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard.

Book Description Arrow, 2004. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neu Neuware, Importqualität, auf Lager, Versand per Büchersendung - Fünf Fuß neun Zoll ist Sophy groß, und das schon in Strümpfen. Als sie im Haushalt von Lady Ombersley eintrifft, gibt es einen mächtigen Wirbel, und nicht nur wegen ihrer Körpergröße heißt sie bald die Grand Sophy. Mit Temperament und Humor zeichnet Georgette Heyer eine gescheite und vorurteilsfreie junge Dame, deren eigensinnige Nonchalance nicht nur die Wohlanständigkeit englischer Landadeliger provoziert. Keck, aber mit gewinnendem Charme setzt sie sich über die ungeschriebenen Gesetze der feudalen Gesellschaft hinweg, mischt sich in alles und jedes, stiftet unentwegt Verwirrung und entwirrt zugleich ein ganzes Knäuel von Mesalliancen und fehlgeratenen Verlöbnissen. 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. 352 pp. Englisch.
