    E–pub/E–book [Lady of uality] I've seen mixed reviews for this one with GR readers but I have to say I enjoyed it on the wholeI liked Annis A strong independent woman who knew what she wanted and went after it Leaving her brother's house to live alone was an unusual decision for a woman of the time She came across as hard and uncompromising at times but I think that had to be her outward appearance in the world she lived in Otherwise she would have not been taken serio

Summary Lady of uality

Summary ê Lady of uality 107 The spirited and independent Miss Annis Wychwood is a beautiful heiress and hopelessly single has twenty nine and well past the age for falling in love When she sponsored young pretty Miss Lucilla Carleton's coming out the town's social elite were shocked After all how could Annis find Lucilla a husband when she could not choose one for herself Then Lucilla's handsome an Heyer s last book It was published in 1972 before a series of strokes and a fatal bout with lung cancer 80 cigarettes a day will do that to one carried her off in 1974 Definitely not the best work she didInterestingly Dame Agatha Christie s last book came out in 1972 the absolutely execrable Elephants Can Remember and Dame Ags died in 1975 These ladies were contemporaries though I know of no evidence showing that they ever met I d ve paid top dollar to be present when they did Your attention please time travel agencies I want a cut of the bucks from that alternate timeline tourThe books were not the finest in the respective authors ouevres Heyer s not best however was about as far from her normal output as any other author s not best as Christie was suffering from dementia she headed a great deal farther down from her own peak In this book Heyer s accustomed subtlety and witty misdirection are entirely absent There are pleasant passages of smile inducing drolerie but few standout moments and then almost always deeply familiar from past works Ninian the very recent schoolboy whose arc to maturity resembles that of Nicky Carlyon from The Reluctant Widow has probably the most memorable humorous lines in the bookWell I don t scruple to say that I never had the least turn for scholarship Ninian somewhat unnecessarily disclosed He added a handsome rider to this statement saying with a beaming smile And I promise you ma am no one would ever suspect you of being bookishOverwhelmed by this tribute Miss Wychwood uttered in a shaken voice How kind of you Ninian to say soNicky s boyish enthusiasm for espionage in that earlier work contrast tellingly with Ninian s fuddled motivations and interest in this story Ninian graduated from Oxford as opposed to Nicky s rustication therefrom is as bumptiously energetic as Nicky though considerably less interesting He s a Regency dudebro out with the boys and making light work of his childhood friend Lucilla s Bath coming out sort of season He is no patch on the juvenile leads from earlier Heyers but he is energetically amusing whenever he s in the frameMiss Annis Wychwood and Mr Oliver Carleton are peas in a pod they recognize kindred free spirits in each other from the first Neither of them was much given to conformity each has economic independence both are older and wiser than all of the conventional folk around them regardless of calendar age Does this sound familiar Heyerites Black Sheep anyone I should probably review that one one day soon They are crashed into each others spheres of influence and as a result of their shared indifference to Society within the bounds of propriety in Annis s case can t go too far from reality discover they will do nicely as spouses to each other In a tellingly complete rundown of his character flaws at the end of his proposal to Annis Oliver fails to promise Happily Ever After and Annis accepts him with clear eyes and a happy heart I can but hope that represents Heyer s own marriage to George RougierHere s the thing None of this is accomplished with the subtlety and panache of previous iterations It s just out there from the first and so there s no tension or conflict to resolve that s worthy of the name This book is a canter down the bridle path on your oldest horse a treat for the old creature and for you a visit to the site of many familiar pleasures But how man and beast long for the fences and the hedges of steeplechasing youth

Summary ê Lady of uality 107 D egotistical uncle and guardian Mr Oliver Carleton arrived to approve the sponsorship But when Annis embroils herself in the affairs of the runaway heiress Lucilla she is destined to see a great deal of her fugitive's uncivil and high handed guardian Oliver Befriending the wayward girl brings unexpected conseuences among them the conflicting emotions aroused by her guar Late in her career Georgette Heyer published two novels set in Bath Both have heroines who are mature late twenties and both have heroes who defy the gentlemanly conventions of the Regency Black Sheep the other one of the pair tends to be the preferred book and I can see reasons for that although I enjoy reading both because I tend to prefer Heyer s older heroines Venetia being an exception for meIn Lady of uality Annis Wychwood is a beautiful woman of nearly thirty who has turned down a number of marriage proposals She is independently wealthy and sees few inducements to exchange her independence for the married state Annis has even left the protection of her brother s household her parents being no and set up her own establishment in Bath She finds life a little dull there but has a circle of friends that make it appealing than being buried in the country under the thumb of her pompous self important brother who can t rid himself of the notion that he must guide and control herHis parting shot was to saddle her with a companion of his choosing an impoverished kinswoman named Maria Farlow who proves to be an airhead and an inveterate gabster Annis tries to put up with her but for her as for the reader a little of Maria s inanity goes a long way There are moments in the book that jarred me with how unkind Annis could be to her tiresome companionOn their way home from a visit to her brother s estate Annis and Miss Farlow encounter a pair of young people benighted on the road by a carriage accident Annis takes up the young lady to convey her to Bath and hears her story She is a young orphaned heiress Lucilla Carleton a year or so shy of her debut who is escaping from the loving but smothering guardianship of an aunt who is determined to marry her off to her childhood friend Ninian El Ninian was the other half of the pair found by the roadway having been dragooned into assisting Lucilla with her escape The young people are fond of each other but have no wish to wed hence the ill considered flightAnnis on an eually ill considered impulse decides to invite Lucilla to stay for a while as her guest Lucilla is a sweet girl but Annis soon discovers that the duties of a chaperone are trickier than she foresaw especially when Lucilla s guardian her uncle Oliver Carleton appears on the scene Oliver is a well known libertine renowned for his brusue uncivil manners and his entrance into staid Bath society is like throwing a cat among the pigeonsThis is a very promising setup but in this last of Heyer s novels it is clear that she is running out of creative energy Ordinarily Lucilla and Ninian would have storylines as well developed as the heroine s their subplot having almost as many twists and surprises as hers But in fact despite lots of sparkling dialogue from Annis s uarrels with Oliver to Maria Farlow s nonsense not a whole lot happens Annis s position of independence doesn t allow for a lot of opposition however inappropriate her choice of partner might seem to her loved ones and Lucilla ends up making much less trouble than you might expect I enjoy the primary couple despite Annis being forced in the proposal scene to utter the canard that makes me dislike Venetia so if you cheat on me it will be my fault and enjoy following two self aware adults as they fall in love but I miss the complexity and challenges of her earlier books I even found three passages where Heyer repeated herself within the same book a failing made poignant by my knowledge that she was reaching the end of her long and productive career It s hard to escape the conclusion that this was written on autopilot Still the least of Heyer s Regency novels is better than anyone else s Regency novel that I ve yet encountered so as an occasional reread Lady of uality toes up to the mark
