Happy new year to everyone here! I hope it's a good one for you all, full of wonderful books.

Something suddenly struck me as I was reading the other day, and then I found it again when I looked at the list of heroes on here... has anyone else noticed that GH has an overwhelming propensity to award grey eyes to her main male characters?

I'm halfway through False Colours at the moment - it's wonderful! I love Kit and Evelyn, and thier mother is hilarious!

Happy New Year to all...

Anna, your question reminded me of one of my recent GH observations, because Sprig Muslin is one of those books where the main plot is not what makes me reread it; it's the secondary characters and the descriptions. Lady Hester is a type of GH heroine (yes I know that Amanda is the nominal heroine but she does not end up with the hero; she's rather like Belinda in The Foundling or Cherry in Charity Girl; a plot device to help the hero find out who he is and what he wants) who is very shy and yet rises to the occasion, like the women who end up with the heroes of those other two books.

All of which to say, Sprig (it really is Sprig, it's a kind of fabric with a little print on it; the allusion is to a rather demure fabric suitable to a young unmarried woman, and it's a joke because Amanda is anything but demure) Muslin is a GH so read with confidence! But what I like about it is the secondary plot.

I saw that Stephen Fry loves GH - I suggest that we mount a campaign to get him to use his (considerable) influence to get some films made!

My favourites are The Corinthian, Sylvester and Cotillion.

BTW I have found several errors in my copies of the romances. For example, in The Corinthian, Wroxhall (now North Wroxall) in Wilshire changes half way through the book to Wroxham – which is in Norfolk!

Hello All GH lovers!

Just want to wish you all a very Happy New Year. I want to ask if anyone has read Spring Muslin, and if so is it good like all the rest of her books.

Sally how can I thank you for having this wonderful website? You are the best!!!!!!!!!

Regards

I just finished "Lady of Quality". The story was great, I loved Annis' common sense and truly feel I could understand her unconventional way of thought in a society very intent on keeping her conventional. This is by far one of the BEST in terms of plot and tying in the aspects of romance.

I've just finished An Infamous Army... I didn't much like it at first because it felt like Judith's character was being presented much less favourably, but by the end... wow. I'm blown away. Such detail in the battle of Waterloo, and it's really very moving... An amazing piece of writing, I think, all the more so as it's unusual amongst her more light-hearted romances.

Hello,

I just finished reading The Convenient Marriage last night, and enjoyed it very much! I love all the characters, especially Lord Rule and Horatia. Horry is such a likeable character, especially in her first scene with Lord Rule. It is all very amusing, and I definitely recommend. It's joined the ranks of my favourites.

Reading Powder and Patch at the moment, and liking that as well. It seems as if she has written it in a different style; more lighthearted, and easygoing.

Louisa.

Hello Jemima, I visited your blog-review, would like to comment that when I meet both intellectuals and snobs I am proud to promote GH because Heyer is a first class author.

Regarding The Reluctant Widow, I find it a perfectly shaped mistery-romance-social-psychological novel. It is rich in its finesse, irony and characters’ feelings must be read between the lines.
(I love Elinor, Carlyon, Becky, Francis Cheviot – all of them)
Ciao and Warmest regards to the visitors of PumpRoom

Vidal is amazing... I was just reading Devil's Cub again last night and I only wish that there were more scenes between Vidal and Mary! Georgette Heyer's humour never fails to leave me smiling.

I just finished Arabella this morning, and I love Ulysses! And the way Robert talks to him is just so funny! Laugh

Sorry, Louisa, I forget to mention in my last post - I haven't been able to find many of her books in shops either! :( Luckily my local libraries have quite a few, but otherwise I think ebay is the best way to go, as Gracie said.

I love georgette heyer!! ithink they should make some movies, i think Jeremy Northam should be a leading man, like he would make an awesome Vidal or even Lord Rule.

Thank you, Gracie. I've been looking around, and I will hopefully find some.

I have just read Devil's Cub, and enjoyed it immensely! I loved all the scenes with the old characters from These Old Shades. It was such a great book, and I loved Mary. Vidal was pretty amazing, too. So like his father. :)

I'm going to read The Convenient Marriage next, so I hope it is good.

Also, I can imagine Richard Armitage as Vidal. Someone seriously needs to make some GH movies.

Audrey, I agree on Richard Armitage. ;) I can see him as Vidal in Devil's Cub...

I haven't read any Dorothy L. Sayers, Angie (oh, and I agree completely about GH's beautiful phrasing), but my mother has heaps - they're next on my list once I finish GH. I just wish that there were more of her books - it'll be so sad when I've finished the last one! If only it were possible to wipe my memory so that I could read them all again for the first time.

A favourite heroine? So hard to pick! For me Sophy will always be one of my favourites - the way she handles Charles and, in particular, Mr. Goldhanger always leaves me smiling. I also like Mary in Devil's Cub for her strength in the face of Vidal's anger, and of course Frederica for all the reasons you listed, Emma. (I have quite a soft spot for Jessamy, too.)
