Charity Girl Not one of thesuccessful Heyers, this starts out with the introduction of a billion characters we never meet again, and then involves a lot of travelling in hunt of people, a too large late appearance of a Falstaff, and very little chance to see the main couple even in the same room There s not even a powerful trigger for the change of heart, since the couple appear to see each other regularly, and aren t at any real emotional extremis during the story.Reread notes liked thison thi Not one of thesuccessful Heyers, this starts out with the introduction of a billion characters we never meet aga 1.5I ll just leave this as an explanation for myself I cannot believe the same person wrote The Grand Sophy wrote this You never get the feeling of who should be together One of the positive things in this story is the hero himself He is rarely with the heroine since he is trying to solve Cherry s problem so that could be the reason The rest of them are as annoying as they can get I neither liked snobbish Henrietta, nor Cherry one of the dumbest characters I ve come across in fiction Ev 1.5I ll just leave this as an explanation for myself I cannot believe the same person wrote The Grand Sophy wrote this You never get the feeling of who should be together One of the positive things in this story is the hero himself He is rarely with the heroine since he is trying to solve Cherry s problem so that could be the reason The rest of them are as annoying as they can get I neither liked snobbish Henrietta, nor Cherry one of the dumbest characters I ve come across in fiction Ev When Fate And A Chivalrous Impulse Combine To Saddle Viscount Desford With A Friendless Homeless Waif Named Cherry Steane, To Whom Else Should He Turn In Such A Scrape But His Old Childhood Playmate, Henrietta Silverdale For All They Refused To Oblige Their Parents By Marrying, They Have Always Been The Best Of Friends But As Desford Pursues Cherry S Lickpenny Grandfather And Reprobate Father Around Unfashionable Watering Places And The Seedier Fringes Of Society, Hetta Is Forced To Wonder Whether He Might Not, At Last, Have Fallen In Love Without The Timely Intervention Of His Scapegrace Brother Simon, And Hetta S Worthy Suitor Gary Nethercott, Desford Is In Danger Of Making A Rare Mess Of His Affairs Charity Girl Is A Wonderful Romantic Novel By The Queen Of The Regency Romance, One Of The Most Popular Historical Novelists Of All Time.

book No, really, he s a great guy and that s a good thing It s just that in other Heyer romances, the reformed rakes have been muchentertaining Maybe it s justsatisfying Like Sprigged Muslin, which has GH s wit and carefully crafted characters but little romance, this story involved the hero, a viscount and heir to a title, becoming entangled with a secondary character, the charity girl of the

question has been raised in other reviews, What is this book really about Because it doesn t seem to be about romance I think it could be about Sons and Brothers , or perhaps lord Desmond grows up The relationship between the H and his father and brother is quite lovely Charity s father Mr Steane is a very good character, alarming and funny And there is a beautiful quote toward the beginning of the

young, and naturally you were never in love with him But I was, and I remember how gay, and handsome, and dashing he used to be, and how very happy we were And we still love one another, Not one of Heyer s best, but an enjoyable read This one is mostly a comedy of manners, and while it s never laugh out loud funny, I read it with a smile on my face.The romance is quite weak, although I was glad

no idea why the hero would care for the heroine Its never really explained to us, and its
