The King's untimely death may have cheated the headstrong Lady Jean Conway out of her first season, but it had nothing to curb her romantic imagination. To the dismay of her more sensible twin Margaret, Lady Jean proceeded to fall hopelessly in love with the silver-tongued, seditious poet, Owen Davies--and catapult her entire family into social ruin...

$16.95. f The year is 1820, and England is in an uproar over the death of George III, new king Prinny's trying to divorce his queen, and the unlawful activities of humanitarian reformists (neo-pantisocrats!). At the same time, the country manor of Brecon is rocking from the antics of a madcap pair of twin girls, a seditious poet, and an aspiring politician. The romantic adventures of these four youths become enmeshed with their country's problems to form a humorous regency with more substance than most. Characters from two of the author's previous works, Lady Elizabeth's Comet and The Bar Sinister , also appear in this story. Recommended for libraries with regency collections.Leslie A.
