A Civil Contract

A Civil Contract - Georgette Heyer Heyer's best and most complex yet (I'm reading them in order). The clash of the rising bourgeoisie with the decaying aristocracy makes for an interesting sub-text. Heyer re-uses some of her standard characters - the helpless mother-in-law. and the wise and crusty one - but gives gives more shape to many of the others. Adam and Jenny are tops. Enjoyed it thoroughly.
