Overview

Lady Jean Conway is wildly in love with Owen Davies, a Shellesque poet who is cataloguing the Brecon library, whereas her twin, Lady Margaret, has a tendre for Lord Clanross's private secretary, who is in love with Jean. Both Johnny Dyott, the secretary, and Owen are involved in Radical politics. So is the Earl of Clanross, who wants an immediate reform of Parliament, to the horror of Lady Anne, his political sister-in-law. His wife, Lady Elizabeth, wants to study comets, and his best friend can't decide whether to give away the fortune he's inherited or buy his wife the country estate she yearns for. These intertwined stories play against a canvas of public events, including the divorce of Queen Caroline, in 1820, the silliest year in English history.

    I stumbled upon this author and I am soooo glad I did. What a jewel of a regency novel. This author has a magnificent grasp of the politicical and socio-cultural history of the Regency. She even uses antique spelling but does it in a way which is organic and not fake. Her characters have back stories, therefore they are not one dimensional or flat. Her female characters are smart and capable and her male characters are charming. I bought all of her Regencies. I wish she would write Regencies again!

    This novel is about twins Jean and Maggie Conway, cousins of the Earl of Clanross. This novel is about them coming of age in post Napoleonic Brittain, at a time when Prinny is about to ascend the throne. England is undergoing some social and cultural upheaval as the debut is postponed but the twins, young ladies ad they are becoming, get into trouble. Also, this novel fits in as an ongoing story to Lady Elizabeth's Comet and Bar Sinister.

    I highly reccomend all of this authors Regency novels.
