by Georgette Heyer | Read by Sarah Woodward

Heyer’s novels tend to be filled with sly wit and great fun, and narrator Sarah Woodward captures both of these qualities perfectly. It’s immediately obvious that Woodward understands the characters and their motivations very well, in particular the titular Sophy, who is both kindhearted and strong headed, and who is determined to put the world to rights as she sees it. Woodward’s performance is occasionally marred with unedited mouth noises. Nonetheless, listeners will be treated by Woodward and Heyer to a romantic, mischievous romp through the upper-class world of Regency London. J.L.K. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
