The Grand Sophy & Augustus Fawnhope
I literally LAUGHED OUT LOUD when I read at the bottom of p. 24 -
"Augustus will be remembered long after you have sunk into oblivion!" to which Charles replies (in what I hear in my head as a very dry voice), "By his creditors? I don't doubt it."
OH MY STARS!! Cheeky retort!
I am loving the clever wit written into The Grand Sophy, aren't you??
What our members thought
"That clever wit is what has kept me reading and reading Georgette Heyer for 50 years!! It never gets old; no matter how many times I have read one of her books, they can STILL make me laugh aloud!!"
"She is a literary genius!"
"Charles was quick with that one!"
