SWEET'S FOLLY

A cheerfully connived entertainment ""in prime twig"" for the Heyer audience that was, although it's far less reliant on all those period social conventions and uses a new set of givens. Honor, living off two aunts who really need their tuppences for a whole collection of stray dogs and cats, decides to relieve them of her support by marrying Alexander, her friend Emily's brother. Emily arranges this--she's emancipated and has hopes of winning an art prize (she does but it's forfeited when her sex is discovered). Alexander, a distrait geometrician, is remote beyond reach so that the marriage is not very intact, only Honor is. Lively and likable--honor bright.
