#94 (#30) - Mr Cavendish, I Presume ~ Julia Quinn
There really should be a higher than a 5+ *****+ Star rating, as this book deserves it.
The flip side of the story - from the point of view of Thomas, the Duke of Wyndham, before he was dispossessed of his title by Jack (see The Lost Duke of Wyndham). Complicated? Oh you bet ya little cotton socks it is ......... and perfectly written.
Thomas the Duke of Wynham has been engaged to Amelia since they were both in their cradle, but has dragged his well polished Hessians, and never quite managed to make it to the alter. Along comes Jack the Highwayman, who dispossesses him of the title of Duke and marries Grace their grandmother's companion. What of Amelia? Read the book people ................. I love, love, love it ........... no doubt both of the books will be read, and re-read over and over again.
Run and buy it .... laugh and marvel out just what a comic genius Julia Quinn is.
