Day 05 – A book that makes you happy
One guaranteed to pick me up is Frederica by Georgette Heyer
. This is a Regency romance. Our heroine has inherited the rule of her younger siblings and means to have them safely settled. Her focus is finding a perfect match for her gorgeous sister, just out and unaware of her beauty. Frederica has no concern for her own future--but the distant cousin she turns to as her key to the ton finds himself caring very much.
This is a family story. The characters derive their happiness from taking care of each other. The hero had been living an idle life, never asked to do more for anyone than write a check. Having to sort boy's bicycle accidents and misbehaving hounds gives him a purpose.
It's a slice of life, a happy life, a look at a good family loving each other. It makes me happy.( Collapse )
