A dashing man of honor...

En route to propose to his sensible acquaintance Lady Hester, Sir Gareth Ludlow finds young, pretty Amanda wandering unattended and knows it is his duty to bring her back to her family. This turns out to be a challenge as Amanda seems to possess an imagination as intriguing as it is dangerous.

A shocking refusal...

Lady Hester stuns both him and her family when she refuses him. At her age, no one would expect her to turn down such an eligible suitor. But Lady Hester has met the indomitable Amanda. How can the quiet, intelligent Hester hope to compete with such a lively young lady?

"Wonderful Heyer! You must readthis one, really it's one of her best ... charming and funny."

"Crisp, funny, and wonderful to read."

"The best Regency-era romance novel ever written ... I had exactly the same reaction to Sprig Muslin that I had with Austen's Pride and Prejudice-an overwhelming sense of relief and satisfaction that it had ended in exactly the way I had wanted it to ... So excellently done and such fun!"

"Hilarious. I recommend Georgette Heyer to anyone in need of a bit of cheering up."

I liked it mostly but was severely disappointed in the ending. No one ended with the people I wanted them to be with!

I enjoyed this book, but had to try to interpret the meanings of many phrases that are not common in English speaking Canada (of today). Even the title is difficult to decode without reading the book. I simply had to skim over many colloquialisms without understanding their intended meaning. I never had this much difficulty when reading any of Jane Austen's work.

Not Heyer's best, but a fun, frothy romp nonetheless.
