Summary ã PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Georgette Heyer Charity Girl Read ✓ 104 A young and lovely runaway alone on the road to London Miss Charity Steane is running away from the drudgery of her aunt's household to find her grandfather Not expecting her visit the old gentleman is not in London but is away in the country The first time the young Viscount Desford saw the girl he thought she was a child A child in trouble running away But she was a girl nearly seventeen and when Viscount encounters her walking to London Charity Girl is one of Georgette Heyer s later and lesser offerings but I still found it a fairly amusing and engaging read Thirty year old Viscount Ashley Desford after getting chewed out by his ailing father for not getting married to Henrietta Hetta Silverdale the neighbor his father picked out for him years ago I love her but only like a sister is Desford s excuse takes off to visit his aunt She invites him to join her at a small country ball being held at the home of her neighbors the Bugle family There Desford meets and flirts with the lovely eldest Bugle daughter Lucasta He also meets Charity Cherry Steane the Bugle s sweet destitute niece who lives with them and is bullied and treated like a servant The next morning as Desford is driving his carriage back to London he meets Cherry trudging along the road She s run away from the Bugles and is hoping that her grandfather Lord Nettlecombe will take her in even though he disowned her father many years ago Cherry s mother is dead and her father disappeared a year or so ago and is presumed dead as well One thing leads to another and soon Desford is entangled in a series of misadventures as he tries to help Cherry find a permanent place to stay Luckily he s able to drop Cherry off at his good friend Hetta s home while he s off scouring the countryside for Steane relatives in an effort to help CherryI avoided reading any spoilers for this book so it was amusing to try to figure out which lady Desford is going to end up with I had my suspicions but wasn t entirely sure until Heyer tipped her hand about halfway through the book with a few fairly blatant clues Desford is heroic and goes far beyond the call of duty Hetta is intelligent and clear eyed Cherry is sweet and unselfish There are some fairly funny scenes with various colorful relations of Cherry s Unfortunately none of these characters is particularly memorable Even than most of Heyer s other novels Charity Girl is really a comedy of errorsmanners a mix of both much than than a romance What romance there is is extremely perfunctory taking up less than two pages But the characters and witty dialogue were enough to see me through it in good humor I wouldn t recommend that anyone except a Heyer completist really go out of their way to find and read Charity Girl It s rather slow paced but I enjoyed it well enough though it s not going on my reread someday list Don t expect too much from it and you might find it amusing
