I loved Darby and Sadie.
Darby is a startling man. Distant, harbouring secrets, yet generous to a fault with his friends.
Four survivors of the Bonaparte wars and prison forge a friendship that will become a mainstay for them all back in the genteel world of the ton.
Little did Darby Travers, Viscount Nailbourne, know that when he assured the prison camp's surgeon John Hamilton that he would assist him in any way possible, that that promise would in a few years time result in having a ward--of the female variety! Not only that she is accompanied by an uptight contrary aunt as chaperone, one Miss Sadie Grace Boxer.
I quite felt liked I'd walked into a shades of Oscar Wilde story with all the comings and goings of the household and friends.
Humorous and romantic with intrigue and a couple of cads thrown in gives an entertaining read.
