[Charity Girl] begins with Viscount Ashley Desford making a summer visit to the family estate in Hertfordshire, where his father, Earl of Wroxton, is laid up with gout and exceedingly grumpy. From there, our hero proceeds to his aunt's house party in Hampshire. He accompanies her to a country ball hosted by Lady Bugle whose daughter is the local beauty. Taking a timeout in the hall after waltzing with the beauty to check his appearance, he encounters Charity Steane, known as Cherry, the poor cousin living with Bugles, who is spying on the ball from the stairs. And thus the adventure begins.

The day after the ball, Desford heads for London in his curricle. He encounters Cherry running away from home. Treated as a despised servant and accused by her maternal aunt of attempting to steal Desford from the beauty, she decides that she'll have better luck with her estranged paternal grandfather in London, who disowned his son before Cherry was born. Concerned what could happen to an innocent teenager on her own, he gives her a ride, but alas, her grandfather's house is closed up. Now what to do? The only option he sees is to track the old man down and meanwhile leave Cherry with his childhood playmate and lifelong friend Henrietta Silverdale, who still lives at home with her mother at the neighboring estate of Inglehurst Place. He's annoyed to see that Hetta is being courted by Cary Nethercott, a new neighbor who recently inherited yet another nearby estate.

A comedy quest ensues. Who ends up with whom? Is Cherry really an orphan? No one's heard from her disreputable father for years. Will her grandfather refuse to take her in? Has Desford fallen for the pretty little innocent? Will Hetta finally get married? What could go wrong? What misunderstandings ensue? It's a standard Regency rom-com from Heyer. ( )

Amusing but a little too similar to 'Sprig Muslin' for my liking. Entertaining scenarios as the two [eventual] lovers discover their depth of feeling for each other. Some tedium in passages that didn't particularly add to the main theme, such as [Spoilers] Desford's ill-fated travels to find Charity's (Cherry Stean) grandfather. More development of the backstory could have been included to characterize the relationship of Henrietta and Desford. ( )

Nothing wrong with it, nothing exciting. Very similar to another Heyer (ah, it's Sprig Muslin), though this time the wandering girl who makes the hero and heroine realize they're in love and always have been is far less obnoxious - boring, a bit, but very sweet, not like the spoiled brat of the other book (I forget which one, I read it relatively recently though). I quite like most of the characters here - the (of course) handsome, intelligent, independent hero, his crotchety father and lovely (mentally and physically) mother, his young but reasonably sensible brother, the sensible and intelligent heroine, the wandering girl (that's Charity), and even the hero's valet and groom who are very loyal to him and very jealous of each other. Oh, and the nice-but-dull suitor who provides the final answer to the puzzle. The heroine's mother, Charity's aunt, cousins, and grandfather, and Charity's father (who deserves a mention all to himself) are appropriately nasty and occasionally useful despite that. Enjoyable, not particularly memorable. I don't think I'll bother to keep it (or Sprig Muslin); I'm glad I read it, but not interested in rereading. ( )

Viscount Desford is titled, wealthy and smart, but no woman has yet caught his eye. Then he encounters Charity, a young lady whose parents were the despair of society and is now living on her aunt's sufferance. Desford is moved by her unhappiness, and sets out to find her grandfather, who he hopes will take charge of her. Everyone fears that Desford will fall for the penniless, unconnected Charity, who has nothing to offer Desford but a good heart and "taking" ways.


SPOILERS: Luckily for everyone, the adventure of finding Charity's grandfather leads Desford to realize that he is in love with his old friend Henrietta. I didn't get a good feel for any of the characters, and there wasn't a great deal of plot. This was enjoyable, but compared to Heyer's other books, lackluster. ( )

As far as it was possible for an elderly gentleman suffering from dyspepsia and a particularly violent attack of gout to take pleasure in anything but the alleviation of his various pains the Earl of Wroxton was enjoying himself.
