Publisher's Summary

The accomplished Corinthian Sir Richard Wyndham is wealthy, sophisticated, handsome, and supremely bored. Tired of his aristocratic family constantly pressuring him to get married, he determines to run away after meeting the delightful, unconventional heroine Penelope Creed. Penelope - literally - falls into his life late one night as she hangs from the window of her aunt's house - she too attempting to escape the pressures of forced marriage. The two allies become embroiled in a series hilarious madcap adventures as they cross-dress, run into escaped criminals, have a case of mistaken identity, and save people from their own dramatics. Little do they predict their feelings for each other blossoming into romance.

Narrator exaggerated characters

Loved the story
Narrator unfortunately overplayed the characters making it difficult to enter into the story. Overall good.

Madcap romp

The Corinthian is an enjoyable story full of plot twists which ( mostly) get resolved; our hero and heroine fall for each other over a three day caper through the Somerset countryside all the while foiling diamond thieves, Bow St Runners, irate fathers and sundry other nefarious characters. Well read with good accents and while this is by no means Heyer at her best, it's a pleasant way to pass the hours.
