Sylvia Thorpe wrote this book in 1960. Described on the cover as a Georgian Romance, it appears to be set immediately before the Regency times.

Sylvia Thorpe wrote this book in 1960. The heroine penniless Caroline Cresswell sets out to help her friend, dearest Jenny to elope rather than wed the odious Mr. Ravenshaw. He reminds me of the best Georgette Heyer heroes. One person found this helpful.

I'm a huge fan of Sylvia Thorpe, and this is a great one! Caroline, a heroine living on the reluctant charity of extended family, meets Guy, a wealthy hero in the best Mr. Darcy style, on an accidental adventure. Great writing and great characters, this is a keeper.

When little Theodore Mallory inherited Garth House from an aged and distant relative, it seemed to his eldest sister, Dione, the answer to many problems

When little Theodore Mallory inherited Garth House from an aged and distant relative, it seemed to his eldest sister, Dione, the answer to many problems. Against all advice, she persuaded her widowed mother to remove the family from the luxurious London home where they were living on the charity of rich relations and to set up house at their newly acquired property in the country. The newcomer nodded an acknowledgment of the greeting and shot a quick glance past the innkeeper toward the two young women. He said pleasantly: In no way, Hobkin, that cannot wait until you have attended to these ladies.

This was a slow grower to me. I liked it; I think I'll keep it with the other dozen Sylvia Thorpe books I've read that I'll keep. I'm having trouble putting my finger on why I didn't give it a better rating, though. It's clean, appropriate for very young readers, and free of supernatural elements. It's not gloomy or oppressive--pretty sunny, actually. Maybe I'll revisit this later.

Sylvia Thorpe wrote this book in 1960. Described on the cover as a Georgian Romance, it appears to be set immediately before the Regency times. The heroine penniless Caroline Cresswell sets out to help her friend, dearest Jenny to elope rather than wed the odious Mr. Ravenshaw. The elopement doesn't go exactly to plan, Jenny and Roland get away but Caroline finds herself in a dangerous predicament that only the odious Mr. Ravenshaw can assist her. The action is set mostly in the country with only a few scenes set in London's high society.

I love this novel! Guy Ravenshaw is the quintessential Regency hero: older, knowledgeable and adroit, unobtrusively protective, and totally in love with the heroine from the moment he meets her. He reminds me of the best Georgette Heyer heroes. Caroline is a thoroughly satisfactory Regency young heroine, and it's easy to believe that Guy loves her. This early Sylvia Thorpe novel (1960) clearly shows the influence of Heyer, and it's all good!
