I did nothing to promote the scene; I refrained from adding as much as one twig to the flames; and when I did intervene it was from motives of chivalry. From what?’ she gasped. From what?’ she gasped valry,’ he repeated, meeting her astonished gaze with a grave countenance, but with such a twinkle in his eyes that she was hard put to it not to laugh. A look of such piteous entreaty was cast at me –’ ‘No!’ protested Miss Trent. Not piteous! I didn’t!’. Piteous!’ said the Nonesuch remorselessly.

Talk about The Nonesuch

Many many many years ago my sister-in-law was addicted to Georgette Heyer books. She worked in a book store, owned every one her works and drove me nuts trying to get me to read one. I refused.

A month ago I was stuck somewhere with no car and no books. Laugh, if you must but this is my version of the 7th circle in the house of the devil! I was in a panic. There, on a dusty shelf was a single novel: The Nonesuch. I had a niggling feeling that karma might be real and maybe didn't always wait 'till you were dead. And it was, of course, a book - my cocaine. On principal I waited as long as I could before I just grabbed it and started to read. Well!

Admitting nothing, I can only write that I am ever so happy that these books are easily available. I intend to read every single one. Of course, there is no reason for me to mention to anyone how completely, idiotically wrong I was. "For no one now lives... who remembers."
I've read this and listened to it a couple times, and I like it, but don't love it. This time while I was listening to the audio, I focussed on what bothers me and it's definitely Tiffany! As a secondary character, there's way too much of her and she's incredibly annoying! Have you seen the original Willie Wonka movie, with Varuka stamping her foot and screaming "I want a golden goose!" That's Tiffany in this book. Spoiled rotten, terrible temper which she uses to control the household and get what she wants with absolutely no regard for others' feelings or comfort. She's horrible. I get tired of reading about her.

Sir Waldo is a fine hero, handsome, talented and rich. But he's kind of the strong, silent type and we always seem to be kept at a distance. I preferred his good natured, younger cousin with his open, confiding manners. Fortunately he's prominently featured and gets his own romance in the book. Ancilla is one of my favorite types of heroines - attractive, mature, competent and gracious. This is a good book, but it never wows me and the only strong emotion it illicits is annoyance at Tiffany.
One of the Heyers that I've read a few times but it's not among her best. I really liked Waldo Hawkridge and Ancilla Trent and some of the supporting characters. I could have stood a bit less of the unlikable Tiffany, but she was the catalyst for much of the story development so maybe that wasn't possible. I love Heyer's writing and there was enjoyment to be found there but I would have welcomed one or two comical characters to add a bit more of the savor Heyer is known for, like a Lord Bromford or an Augustus Fawnhope or even a Claud Darracott. The ending seemed very abrupt, especially coming so quickly on the heels of the protagonists working out the miscommunication problem that had separated them, and it's a big part of why this story earned a lower rating.
I've read more than 20 Georgette Heyer books and this is my favourite. While all of her stories are well-written, the Nonesuch is a joy because the hero and heroine are both very likeable and the book is full of whimsical supporting characters. The dialogue is very funny, and contains many 'home truths'.

Unlike some of Heyer's other heroes, Waldo, has no obvious character faults - despite being handsome, incredibly rich and an excellent sportsman, he is not proud, bored, full of angst, an alcoholic or a gamester. The heroine, Ancilla, is beautiful but by no means the prettiest girl in the village, and makes the best of any situation. Each of them shows good sense and humour in dealing with the scheming and spoilt beauty, Tiffany (and in Waldo's case, his disgruntled relatives). So when we get to the inevitable happy ending, we can be fairly confident that they really will be happy ever after.

The Nonesuch places these 2 paragons in an ordinary village setting. There are no arch villains, no dramatic turns of fortune. Instead, we watch them engage in the delicate task of steering Tiffany and the young Lord Lindeth (Waldo's favourite nephew) away from making poor choices. While Ancilla, as Tiffany's governess/companion, works to persuade her to behave better because it is in her own interest (since it is useless to appeal to Tiffany's better nature), Waldo encourages Tiffany to expose her character in front of Lindeth. The other supporting characters add humour to the situation and make the book a joy to read.
Possible Spoiler! This book has the worst ending! It is completely hacked off just when things were getting interesting. Yes, the proper pairings have occurred, but nothing is completely set in stone and of course there is the scandal to deal with. This does not actually interfere with my absolute love of the rest of the book. The characters were sublime, the plot was engaging, and the writing was as fabulous as ever. I was simply not prepared for the sudden, crashing halt. I was expecting at least another chapter, if not two. But it just ends. As if Heyer had reached her word length goal and simply put up her pen. This is not to say that the book was bad, it wasn't. It is actually one of her best efforts. I was so caught up in the story that the ending came as an almost physical shock. And it is my only criticism. Everything else about the book was a solid 10. Very very highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.
