    (EBOOK FREE) [The Grand Sophy] by Georgette Heyer One of Georgette's best loved Regencies it is impossible to read it any other way than as the story is told breakneck the smile never left my faceWhile Sophy stays true to the period in a lot of ways she is a far modern heroine it simply doesn't occur to her she can't be independent or that she doesn't know what is best for her cousins the Rivenhalls when she is sent to stay with themThe whole family reminds me of the Vo

The one thing that always puzzles me is people s tendency to compare Georgette Heyer to Jane Austen As well compare Crime and Punishment to a John Grisham novel I am not denying the literary merits of either genre far from it in fact However that doesn t change the fact that one is trying to compare chalk and cheese Jane Austen s purpose in writing her novels was not merely to tell a story In fact the story was merely a vehicle to examine critically the s and customs of the society of her times In an era where women academicians and philosophers were all but unknown Austen used the only avenue open to her to espouse her brand of social commentary the novel Georgette Heyer on the other hand wrote to entertain Full stop Her books are not and were never intended by her to be anything than a pleasant way to pass time That being said in the context of the Regency romance she is the unparalleled expert Her knowledge of the ton or Regency high society is unmatched by any novelist save those who actually lived in those times Frivolous and flighty though her work may be the authenticity of her voice cannot be denied The Grand Sophy is my favourite Georgette Heyer book I have a special place in my heart for each and every one of her novels but in The Grand Sophy she brings to bear all of the skills that are her forte Sophy is charming and strong willed a force to be reckoned with Unlike with most of our recent Regency romances her heroines are never milk and water misses I do not think I have met a single Heyer heroine who could not kick the ass of our current crop of romance heroines Working within the boundaries of a rigid society she manages to make her women intelligent witty and charming Sophy is a devious meddlesome schemer who manages to win our hearts and the hero s without ever submersing her personality What draws me back to Heyer time and again is the sheer sense of fun that she manages to impart to each and every one of her novels The plots are never standard nor are the heroines or the heros Take for example Gilly from The Foundling He s no alpha man he s a timid weak aristocrat who still somehow manages to be adventurous and find himself and his path in life Or Freddie from Cotillion a dandy with no great physical prowess or good looks who manages to get the girl of his dreams simply by being kind and reliable These heroes are so real so much believable and lovable than the rich dissolute alpha males of our contemporary historicals who manage to win the heroine simply through the hardness of their abs and the hugeness of their manhood Georgette Heyer s books will live on long after the Harleuin historicals fade from our memories simply because she is superlative at what she does making you believe in romance Not lust not soulmates but romance

READ á The Grand Sophy FREE DOWNLOAD ô eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ¶ Georgette Heyer Er mixed up family from itself Everyone is hanging out with the absolute wrong person and the whole place is in an uproar Luckily Sophy knows the shocking tricks to straighten things out and it starts with throwing a really grand party. I wonder if I ll ever read a Georgette Heyer and not fall madly for itThis one is definitely in my top favourites It was funny witty engaging and just awesome It was about Sophy s ingenuous plans in rescuing everyone s problems than an actual romance but it was so engaging and hilarious that I didn t really mind All the characters were so special and uniue and just such FUN DThe hero was very different from other Regency romances In fact he acted mostly like an anti hero what with his tyrannical and spiteful ways and his immense dislike of Sophy But I couldn t really blame him because I felt so sorry for him that he was engaged to Miss Wraxton who was undoubtedly the most proper dutiful and well bred woman in London and it really was no wonder that such a dead bore of a Bluestocking would turn him bitter Imagine having to spend the rest of your days with a woman who made it her duty to report to you even the most insignificant gestures of your relatives And who actually enjoyed talking about the plants that grow in Jamaica Yeah very tedious Why Charles proposed to her in the first place is still a mystery I m trying to solve The reason I wasn t turned off by him was that Heyer would show us glimpses of his warm loyal and loving side from time to time and we were given to understand that he was just a man who had a lot of difficulties to bear and who needed the right woman beside him to help him through themSophy is independent bold courageous and delightful and she loses no time in taking the town by rage and resolving in untangling everyone s problems And she does it brilliantly Her exploits were indeed wonderful and so hilarious She was so kind and always acted with the best intentions in mind I think she might be my favourite Heyer heroine so far She was very modern minded and if she lived today she would be just the kind of woman who would make an excellent counsellor Or possibly she would prefer to be a zookeeper as she seemed to have uite a passion for animals She arrived in Berkeley Suare with a monkey a dog and a parrot and it is later discovered that she keeps ducklings in her houseThis is what makes Heyer s novels so much fun She always adds super random elements that give such a comedic turn to everything that one cannothelp but to burst out laughing Lord Bromford who was a male version of Miss Wraxton and his cold and mustard bath were simply hilarious There were also two extremely funny shooting scenes a poet who was so lost in his bubble he didn t even have a clue he was getting married a man with the mumps and a lovely girl named Cecilia who was so sweet she deserved the best view spoiler I was never glad than when she ended up with Lord Charlbury The man was such a sweetheart and I felt bad for him that he might acuire the reputation of a rake because of Sophy hide spoiler
