Softcover; Mass Market PB Berkley Medallion Books: NY; c1957,1975; Reprint 414 pages Very Good- 
Spine and cover creases, light edgewear, book slightly curved. Pages pale tan but clean and not brittle; none loose. Book says "Large-Type edition" but the text is only slightly larger than most mass market paperbacks. The text is not as large as it is in most large print hardbacks. Also published as 'Sylvester or The Wicked Uncle'. ; We agree with the "Time and Tide" reviewer that said they would place this book as high as "The Grand Sophy". A very enjoyable Regency romp. "When Sylvester, Duke of Saleford, posted into Wiltshire to discover whether the Hon. Phoebe Marlow matched his exacting requirements for a bride, he did not expect that the prospect of an offer from him would cause Miss Marlow to flee from her home." Nor did he know that Phoebe, with her very discerning eye, and gift for mimicry, had written a novel... Highly recommended.; This title reviewed and recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DES email discussion group. Image is actual copy on offer.

Venetia knew her neighbor for a gamester, a shocking rake, and a man of sadly character. It was, therefore, particularly provoking to find that given occasion, Damerel could make up his mind to be quite idiotically noble...; 'This book has long been at or near the top of my list,[of books by Heyer] the hero and heroine are both well read and intelligent and share a sense of humor, and I find their dialog to be a delight to read.'- Recommended by Jerri C. of the ATS and DES and AT email discussion groups.

148 2536 JAMESON, Storm Company Parade
Softcover; Trade PB Virago Modern Classics: London; c1934,1985; Reprint Very Good-  
345 pages; Edgeworn and rubbed with light spine and cover creases. ; The sixth volume in the Mary Hervey family saga. This is the story of Britain between 1918 and 1923, and of Hervey Russell, caught up in the fervor of London with her husband away in the Air Force and her baby left behind in Yorkshire. In some respects the novel is thinly veiled autobiography, shadowing as it does Jameson's early domestic upheaval and forays into literature. Breaches of loyalty and failed love are recurrent themes. Wonderful supporting characters are drawn, including the sympathetic portraiture of a Jewish press empire, a rare outlook in British literature. The author called this a "good crowded book" and the reader is likely to amend that to an excellent crowded book.' ; Mary Hervey Family Saga
