Charity Girl

Author: Georgette Heyer

Publisher: Pan (1973)

Charity Girl is an enjoyable Regency Romance by Georgette Heyer. It is one of her later novels, and it perhaps loses a little of the charm that made her books sparkle in previous years. But it is an enjoyable read nonetheless. Viscount Desford is the hero who rescues the young Charity, "Cherry." Cherry is running away from her aunt's house. She's tired of being Cinderella-without-a-prince. She's hoping that her grandfather will take her in.. But her grandfather isn't home...Desford delivers the girl to the care of Miss Henrietta Silverdale and her mother, whilst he goes off on his own to try to track down the grandfather. He tries place after place, city after city, following clue after clue, creating increasing confusion along the way. There are plenty of twists in the tale and the book gains momentum towards the end.

Chloe Marr

Author: A A Milne

Publisher: Bello (2017)

In this 1946 novel, Chloe Marr is young, beautiful and so irresistible that countless men fall in love with her. Her story is told through the eyes of her numerous suitors and her women friends who are drawn to her because of her charm and warmth. But nobody really knows anything about her background, and in London society such mystique carries both allure and suspicion. Her life is a whirlwind of dinners, holidays, romantic trysts and parties told with Milne's signature humour and lightness of touch. A. A. Milne's ability to portray artistic London society is second to none but his novel has a more serious message which is emphasised by Chloe's untimely exodus from the people around her - nobody really knows the truth about anybody else.
