The Grand Sophy, CD-Audio
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Resourceful, adventurous and utterly indefatigable, Sophy is hardly the mild-mannered girl that the Rivenhalls expect when they agree to take her in.

Kind-hearted Aunt Lizzy is shocked; stern Cousin Charles and his humourless fiancee Eugenia are disapproving.

With her inimitable mixture of exuberance and grace, Sophy soon sets about endearing herself to her family, but finds herself increasingly drawn to her cousin - can she really be falling in love with him, and he with her? And what of his betrothal to Eugenia?

Review by

This is the first book to which I have listened in 2013 and I can see why my friend likes this book so much. Sophy is a great character. The actions which could be written so as to appear silly are not that way at all. I kept comparing the various sensibilities of the times to some of the Victorian novels I have read lately and having to remind myself this was the Regent era. I think the story could have been easily transported into the Victorian or Edwardian era as well. i was only sad that they had only the abridged version and would definitely like to listen to the unabridged version.
