The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
Random House 1991

Requiring an eligible husband Sophy arrives in London in a chaise drawn by four steaming horses. This arrival is most impressive, but how can Sophy find a husband when she lacks beauty and has a mind of her own, a wretched thing in a woman? Heyer's romantic comedies are a meticulous recreation of the Regency world of manners down to the smallest detail of social code, dress, food, conveyance and language.
Georgette Heyer was born in London.
