Description - Black Sheep by Georgette Heyer
Miss Abigail Wendover's efforts to detach her spirited niece Fanny from a plausible fortune-hunter are complicated by the arrival in Bath of Miles Caverleigh. The black sheep of his family, a cynical, outrageous care-for-naught with a scandalous past - that would be a connection more shocking even than Fanny's unwise liaison with his nephew! But Abby, adept at managing her sweet silly sister Selina, her lively niece, and the host of her admirers among Bath's circumscribed society, has less success in managing her own unruly heart. The Black Sheep is a sweeping, spiritual novel that shows how Geogette Heyer became the most successful and popular writer of her generation and configures to be loved by a huge readership today.
