When the most eligible Earl of Rule offers for the hand of the beauty of the Winwood family, he has no notion of the distress he causes his intended. For Miss Lizzie Winwood is promised to the excellent, but impoverished, Mr Edward Heron. Disaster can only be averted by the delightful impetuosity of her youngest sister, Horatia, who conceives her own, distinctly original plans . . .

The narrator was excellent- great characterisations
Horatia and her brother are annoying characters, story too long winded.

A pretty silly story with annoying female characters, but Gil and Ferdy saved the novel. These lesser characters and Eve Mathieson's dramatisation made it a good listen.
