Sprig Muslin

Sprig MuslinSprig Muslin by Georgette Heyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

La! What a pleasure to read. Yes, it's a romance from a bygone era. Most thankfully, it is well-written. Would that any number of current romance and Chick-Lit authors were able to write as well as Ms. Heyer.

Like several other reviewers, I need to confess that I have never read any of Ms. Heyer's novels before. Guess that makes me a Newbie. I hope the others prove to be as good a diversion as this one. Extra points for a heroine who is past her prime, and a much younger silly twit as the comic foil. Us older ladies do enjoy that angle in a story.

    Learned whilst reading this book that in British slang, muslin used to refer to women or femininity. So, a bit o' sprig muslin -- fresh. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, know what I mean?
