The Nonesuch

Disapproved; and the mothers and daughters saw him as the most eligible and elusive man in the kingdomBut one person remained calm When she became a governess twenty eight years old Ancilla Trent had put away romance and at first she could only be amused at the fuss over Sir Waldo who ignored the well born beauties of the district But she found that instead of regarding him revulsion she could very easily be beguiled into flirtation Such a state of affairs would never doTo be Tiffany Wield's chaperone is a serious trial to A. Contains spoilers 45 starsThings I loved1 Sir Waldo I mean what s not to like He s handsome rich athletic virtuous idolized and a PHILANTHROPIST Finally a perfect hero who doesn t cringe at the mere mention of paupers He wants his newly inherited estate Broom Hall to become a school for young orphan boys Needless to say he won my deepest respect from the first and managed to keep it2 Ancilla Trent I LOVED HER She was absolutely amazing She was so genteel elegant and sensible and remained so throughout the story even when she thought that she was being heedless because Sir Waldo had the disconcerting ability to throw her into flutters She decide that her wisest course would be to put him out of her mind After reaching this conclusion she lay thinking about him until at last she fell

slang Heyer went full out in this one Most of the time it was pretty easy to use the context to determine the meaning of wordssentences but I admit that there were a few instances when I didn t particularly understand what was being said But overall I really enjoyed it Heyer sure knew how to write Some of my favourite chuckfarthing fellow Town Tulip Top of the Trees nambypamby nonsense ninny hammer and my new favourite expression making a cake of oneself Things that annoyed me 1 Tiffany She was just plainly atrociously INTOLERABLE As much as I appreciate villains and selfish shallow characters she was just too muchAnd the fact that she was beautiful only made it worse She didn t deserve it Which brings me to2 Every Single Man dangling around her It was so irritating to hear of so and so going after Miss Wield and so and so being jealous and then Sir Waldo yes Sir Waldo giving her encouragement from time to time Of course we know that he is by no means taking in with her but still I would have loved to hear instead that he was the one man who refrained from flirting with her even if he wanted to teach her a lesson 3 Speaking of which she never does learn her lesson She gets what she wants in the end SHE GOES TO LONDON Well I was only glad for the sake of everyone else particularly the Staples folk that they were to be rid of her4 Miss Trent pretending that she isn t in love with the Nonesuch when he proposes to her because she thinks he has a bunch of illegitimate children Of all the absurdities And what was very upsetting the fact that she WON T ASK HIM POINT BLANK WHAT EXACLTY IT MEANS THAT HE HAD WRETCHED BRATS Ah I know that she was very picky with the proprieties but come on She could have found a way to ask him tactfully what was up But no Instead he had to be rejected when it had been so obvious that he was as virtuous and straitlaced as she was and so profoundly in love with her Poor Sir Waldo5 As much as I love the Regency and its customs and manners I can t help but being a trifle annoyed at the exaggeration as to what is sometimes considered an impropriety No lady can do anything by herself but God forbid she asks the help of any gentleman for she is sure then of being reproached of setting her cap at him which would be even worse That part when some of the old matrons are gossiping about how Miss Trent is trying to catch Sir Waldo was too much to bear All because they danced twice Oh my Lord How improper and he lead her on his arm to supper and then later in the evening wrapped a shawl around her It wasn t as though they were seen making out on the terrace And besides as it never occurred to them that hum hello maybe the reason for Sir Waldo s singling Miss Trent out might be that he is IN LOVE WITH HER Why else would he flirt with the governess6 The word lief It was decidedly over used I don t mind the abuse of devil or devilish or damn or dash but if I come across lief again Argh7 The fact that we are never given any insight into Sir Waldo s developing passion for Miss Trent We all know he s falling for her and as much as I appreciate Heyer s show don t tell I would have liked a tad bit of what was going on inside his head We read about Miss Trent s developing feelings so why not his I wanted to know from his perspective why he had fallen in love with Ancilla We got what Laurie thought on the matter Like who cared about Laurie right8 The ending If I can even call it that I know Heyer loves to wrap things up pretty uickly as though she thinks that after the hero and heroine have kissed it s time to end the story as uickly as she can lest she should be tempted to get them into bed action LOL I don t think so I m kidding she wouldn t but really That was exaggerated A little bit interaction between the two lovers after they are agreed to get married I am reviewing the book right now but I still feel like I haven t finished itWhen all s said and done however my annoyances weren t so profound as to

Georgette Heyer the lady whose impeccable writing skill wasisstill second to noneI m torn about rating this one on one hand the main couple was terrific and I loved them to bits but on the other hand this book has THE most annoying character I ve ever met in Regency novels And I m talking as someone who have endured Lydia Bennet in Pride Prejudice many times over Lydia doesn t hold a candle to Miss Tiffany I m too beautiful for this world WieldI wouldn t have minded it her so much except that she was featured uite prominently throughout the story and with 3xx pages it got to the point where I had to skim her parts just to keep my will to finish Because like I said I wanted to finish Ancilla and Waldo deserved at least that from me Oh they were wonderful both as a couple and also as individualsrating

Georgette Heyer ☆ 2 Review

Ncilla because her pupil's bad behavior Ancilla strives to be a calming influence on her tempestuous charge but then Tiffany runs off to London alone and Ancilla is faced with a devastating scandal Sir Waldo Hawkridge a confirmed bachelor who believes he is past the age of falling in love comes instantly to the aid of the intrepid Ancilla to stop Tiffany's flight and in the process discovers that it's never too late for the first bloom of love And a shocking uestion began to form could the celebrated gentleman be courting he. The Nonesuch is a reread for me It has long been a favorite with its comedy of errors Regency era country setting colorful characters and even colorful use of Regency Cant The Nonesuch defies convention and provides a nearly perfect hero to entice and beguile the reader Waldo is perfection but he is engaging and wins hearts by his very nature He is all that and at the top of his game but he is kind and giving as well as shrewd and worldly wise He guides his two younger relations and even a few others while attempting his first real courtship He s the cool guy and the alpha male without all the draw backsMeanwhile the lady Waldo chooses to favor Ancilla is in great doubt of his perfections and manages to disbelieve or misrepresent him due to her own self doubt Ancilla is a superior lady but she has fallen on hard times and must be employed as a spoilt young beauty s companion It is the difference in their status and wealth that make her doubt the most and believe the worst And I get it reputation is of great importance when you work for a living and are at the mercy of othersHeyer fills the story with a series of sparkling wit laugh out loud comedic moments but spares the reader some of the dashing about that can appear Her focus is on a mature couple finding love but also a gaggle of young people coming of age who need to be steered right On the side there is the story of a second cousin of Waldo s who is on the brink of ruin and must decide on which side he ll landSide note a second reading did not render little spoilt Tiffany any less noisome She really did need a comeuppance and I had no sympathy for her poor little rich girl only child no one to guide her when she was young issuesI love this story but if it has a fault it s the abrupt ending It literally just stops The reader is left in no doubt about the main plot threads but there is no denouement to appreciate itBut as always I come away with a smile and a happy sigh for another of the author s ueenish works
