characters The Nonesuch

Illa because her pupil's bad behavior Ancilla strives to be a calming influence on her tempestuous charge but then Tiffany runs off to London alone and Ancilla is faced with a devastating scandal Sir Waldo Hawkridge a confirmed bachelor who believes he is past the age of falling in love comes instantly to the aid of the intrepid Ancilla to stop Tiffany's flight and in the process discovers that it's never too late for the first bloom of love And a shocking uestion began to form could the celebrated gentleman be courting her.. The Nonesuch is a reread for me It has long been a favorite with its comedy of errors Regency era country setting colorful characters and even colorful use of Regency Cant The Nonesuch defies convention and provides a nearly perfect hero to entice and beguile the reader Waldo is perfection but he is engaging and wins hearts by his very nature He is all that and at the top of his game but he is kind and giving as well as shrewd and worldly wise He guides his two younger relations and even a few others while attempting his first real courtship He s the cool guy and the alpha male without all the draw backsMeanwhile the lady Waldo chooses to favor Ancilla is in great doubt of his perfections and manages to disbelieve or misrepresent him due to her own self doubt Ancilla is a superior lady but she has fallen on hard times and must be employed as a spoilt young beauty s companion It is the difference in their status and wealth that make her doubt the most and believe the worst And I get it reputation is of great importance when you work for a living and are at the mercy of othersHeyer fills the story with a series of sparkling wit laugh out loud comedic moments but spares the reader some of the dashing about that can appear Her focus is on a mature couple finding love but also a gaggle of young people coming of age who need to be steered right On the side there is the story of a second cousin of Waldo s who is on the brink of ruin and must decide on which side he ll landSide note a second reading did not render little spoilt Tiffany any less noisome She really did need a comeuppance and I had no sympathy for her poor little rich girl only child no one to guide her when she was young issuesI love this story but if it has a fault it s the abrupt ending It literally just stops The reader is left in no doubt about the main plot threads but there is no denouement to appreciate itBut as always I come away with a smile and a happy sigh for another of the author s ueenish works
