Friday's Child

by Georgette Heyer

Georgette Heyer is the only novelist I have ever discovered who writes historical romances with accurate historical detail eg lifestyle and customs of the higher circles of regency society folk. Friday's Child is enormously entertaining. Its the story of 'Hero' who runs away from home after being told that her fate was to be a governess. She is rescued by Lord Sheringham, for whom she nursed a childhood crush. Lord Sheringham himself has been disappointed in love and has vowed to marry the 1st woman he sees - Hero. Hero is catapulted into the society of the young bucks who make up Lord Sheringham's friends falls into various scrapes from which she is 'rescued'. The novel is an amusing escapist romp, and ideal for a dismal Sunday afternoon with a box of chocs.
