By Singing Light

The Black Moth - Georgette Heyer I can’t make up my mind whether I like this one or not. I guess I do, but the heroine is so wimpy! I prefer the heroines along the lines of Frederica or Mary Challoner or Drusilla Morville. (June 2008)


Her earliest book. The characters overall were pretty flat, except for the villain, who was at least annoying. It’s also a little more on the wild side of her books, and more and more I’m gravitating towards the other kind. [Feb. 2010]
