Review: The Foundling by Georgette Heyer

42503876From the back of the book:

The Duke of Sale is out to prove himself

The shy, young Duke of Sale has never known his parents. Instead, his Grace Adolphus Vernon Ware, Gilly for short, has endured twenty-four years of rigorous mollycoddling from his uncle and valet. But his natural diffidence conceals a rebellious spirit.

A Mysterious beauty provides the perfect opportunity

When Gilly hears of Belinda, the beautiful foundling who appears to be blackmailing his cousin, he absconds with glee. But he has no sooner entered this new and dangerous world than he is plunged into a frenzy of intrigue, kidnapping, adventure, and surprises at every turn.

This book is fantastic. I liked the fact that the book didn’t focus on the heroine, but upon the hero – Gilly. Gilly grows into his own and comes out from under the thumb of his family. Belinda is a nice secondary character, but a bit light on development. Heyer’s books are ones that can be read over and over while still being enjoyable. THE FOUNDLING will definitely have a place of honor on my bookshelf.

the book girl gives THE FOUNDLING a 5/5
