Connecting with The Grand Sophy

My oh my!

First, I want you to know that I have been beside myself with excitement to share Georgette Heyer & The Grand Sophy with you!

Over a year ago (February 2021) I posted something on PL's Facebook page asking for people to add their favorite authors and titles to my TBR pile. And OH MY STARS was that a popular post! It was on that post that I first heard of Georgette Heyer - thanks to Lynda and Deborah. 

A few months later, Georgette Heyer came up again - this time during our 3rd Thursday Virtual Book Club.

After that, "frequency bias" took hold and I began to see Georgette Heyer in all the nooks and crannies of my life.

By December, I was reading my first Georgette Heyer novel (the one featured in this book box) and I was finally beginning to understand what all the fuss was about. (Not only did I gift The Grand Sophy to my mother-in-law for Christmas, I became obsessed with tracking down the exact copy you got. Why? Because unfortunately, a lot of G.H. novels have the cheesiest, most 70s-inspired covers that ever made you cringe. And well...that just would not do for you!)

Second, I would love to connect with you while you experience The Grand Sophy for yourself. Don't be shy. You can reach me at ericka@prettyliterate.com. I'd love to be your go-to person while you get to know Sophy and find out why she is, indeed, so very grand.

Third, while it's not required that you love The Grand Sophy, I truly *think* you will. I hope you will. Sophy was a hoot and I confess that I called my sister shrilling screaming, I LOVED THIS BOOK! the moment I finished reading it. That was the moment I knew I had to curate a book box featuring Georgette Heyer and her unforgettable heroine, Sophy.

Fourth, the novel treasure is the absolutely PERFECT accompaniment and I hope it is one of those things that will bring a smile to your face for years to come. Every time I slip it on, I am awash with the memories from Sophy's visit with her cousins, the horseplay, the adventure...and I hope you will be, too.

Here's to a GRAND time inside the pages of The Grand Sophy, my friend.
