mp3 dog walking/gardening/mopping read. A wonderful tale of an arranged marriage with Heyer's wonderful descriptive narrative and accurate historical details running alongside the story. Champion!
Georgette Heyer's "A Civil Contract" is an excellent book about a less than perfect woman. It's really good for when you're tired of reading about the "I'm not pretty, my body is too slender and breasts are too big" type of woman :)
