To ensure this, older sister Frederica calls upon a distant relation, the Marquis of Alverstoke, to help launch Charis into society. So far, so meh. But luckily Frederica has three brothers, and the younger two, sixteen-year-old Jessamy and twelve-year-old Felix, are the glorious, and very funny, heart of the book.

Felix is obsessed with mechanical devices of all kinds and is charming enough to succeed in dragging a very reluctant Alverstoke on a trip to examine a foundry, amongst other delights.

Jessamy is trying to study to be a worthy clergyman, in time, but would really rather be out on horseback. And both of them have a great propensity to get into deep trouble, whereupon they promptly turn to Alverstoke for help. And so, by very gradual degrees, Alverstoke learns to care for someone other than himself, and Frederica learns to depend on someone other than herself, and by even more gradual degrees they fall in love.

With the downside, of course, that she never quite realises his intentions and he never quite finds himself in a position to raise the issue. They manage to create the usual end-of-book crisis, which is fortunately resolved rather quickly here.

Book Review: Frederica by Georgette Heyer

I hope it's a wonderful discussion! I haven't read Frederica in much too long - I may have to pull my copy off the shelves again. I still remember my first time, so many years ago, when I was so delighted to find Heyer's books on the shelves in England, after so many years of making do with the few on the library shelves. I had no idea then how many books I still had to discover! Post a Comment.

Review: Frederica by Georgette Heyer

January 23, by Vic. Inquiring readers: This is my second review this year of a Georgette Heyer book to help you while away the winter doldrums. When SourceBooks sent Frederica my way I went into paroxysms of joy, for I recalled loving the book when I first read it just out of college. Years later I like it even better. After reading Frederica I thanked my lucky stars that Georgette Heyer was such a prolific writer and that she lived a long life.

But with his enterprising — and altogether entertaining —country cousins getting into one scrape after another right on his doorstep, before he knows it the Marquis finds himself dangerously embroiled. For all intent and purpose this is my first Heyer. I know I have read a book of hers years ago in Russian, but I cannot for the life of me remember what book it was.
