Publisher's Summary

When Fate and a chivalrous impulse combine to saddle Viscount Desford with a friendless, homeless waif in the engaging shape of Cherry Steane, who else should he turn to in such a scrape but his childhood playmate, Henrietta Silverdale? And although they refused to oblige their parents by marrying, they have always been the best of friends.
But as Desford pursues Cherry's grandfather and father around the seedier fringes of society, Hetta is forced to wonder if he might not, at last, have fallen in love. Without the timely intervention of his brother Simon, and Hetta's suitor Gary Nethercott, Desford is in danger of making a rare jumble of his affairs.

Not my favorite - worth a listen but not a credit

What does Daniel Philpott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I know that I enjoyed this story more with the reader then I would have if I had just read it.

Any additional comments?

My favorite Georgette Heyer books have more interaction between the main characters. But Desford spends a lot of time looking for Charity's relatives. There were also a few too many pontificating relatives for me. If you like Heyer books because of the glimpse it gives you into that time, you might enjoy knowing more about a healing town other than Bath. The book was free for me, and well worth a free listen. But I would not have wanted to use a credit for it.

Funny and Charming Heyer Classic

What did you love best about Charity Girl?

One of my favorite Heyers! Begins with a marvelous scene with the hero and his father – just classic Heyer. Both the hero and heroine are delightful, as were all the minor characters. I loved the hero’s mother and younger brother, and many of the other minor characters were hilarious. Lots of humor and an appealing, intelligent, and mature central couple – all of the best aspects of Heyer to me.Philpott is also my favorite Heyer narrator. He voices all the different characters so well, male and female, and has a wonderful voice to listen to.

What did you like best about this story?

The humor, the characters, and the marvelous narration.

Which scene was your favorite?

Either the wonderful scene at the beginning with Desford and his father, or the madcap and touching end to the book.
