Review: The Foundling, Georgette Heyer « Medieval Bookworm
I think we both should not have started out with Grand Sophy!! Conveniently, two foundljng people emerge as needing his protection, and after a variety of hijinks, Sale begins to discover who he is and what he values in his life.
Heyer paints a wonderful sweet and believable portrait of a young man treated like a child all his life and yet still finds he foundlin the heart of a man, and a good man too. It contained solid character change with the promise for more.

Published March 25th by Harlequin first published Shy, quiet and docile, the young Duke has been forever coddled and pampered on account of his being an orphan, and of his sickly constitution. This is Gilly’s coming of age story, and quite an adventure it is, for one who’s been so sheltered. The Duke does not want to be forced into marriage or be told what to do.
Book review: ‘The Foundling’ by Georgette Heyer
This book has lots of cant and I enjoyed it thoroughly. How could I not also love Gilly? And we go with him. I don’t think I’ve read a H This is really hhe a coming of age novel than a romance; there is a romance, of course, but it takes a distant second place to Heyer’s account of how her hero, Hejer, Duke of Sale, goes adventuring, in a smartly paced plot, and frees himself from the confinement of his family and his title.
Shipment to continental US and Canadian addresses only. So, again, what gives?

georgettd And I’m pretty sure it’s the only Heyer of its kind. Gideon clearly loves Gilly like a brother – georgetye, they were raised side-by-side as Gideon’s autocratic father, Lord Lionel, is Gilly’s guardian – and would lay down his life for him, but sympathizes with the smothering upbringing the sickly young duke has endured for years.
Similar to her other plots like The Corinthian but with more emphasis on the hero. Dear friends, readers, and fellow Georgette Heyer lovers, I am really, really surprised at the low popularity of The Foundling amongst the Heyerites.
I know many love this one, but I have never been able to finish it in the forty years I’ve been reading Heyers. Your review made me want to rush out and buy it right it geyer.
