Simple pleasure

I simply enjoyed the story! I am most grateful to Eve Matheson, who does not over-play the parts, as I felt was done in the Reluctant Widow. Matheson gets the wit and irony just perfect.

In the story, two admirable and intelligent lovers get star-crossed and find their way again through their own decency and common sense as well as the the help and hindrence of various other characters. And a separate scene between Tiffy and Lawrence -- shallow and self-centered throughout -- is worth reading for. I found myself laughing as Heyer continued to reveal new levels of their self-centerededness.

In any audio book, I want an author and a narrator who develop characters that I increasingly grow to like or at least understand. For a love story, this was great.

Delightful

Heyer at her marevelous, amusing, historically accurate best. In The Nonesuch she overturns one stereotype after another, and just when we think we have all the characters sorted out, she offers a startling glint of sympathy for some provoking character, or silliness in someone generally wise. Eve Matheson's excellent reading helps keep me chuckling; I notice new humor each time I listen.
