Sylvester, or, The wicked uncle, by Georgette Heyer. Sylvester stood in the window of his breakfast parlour, leaning his hands on the ledge, and gazing out upon a fair prospect.
Sylvester, or, The wicked uncle, by Georgette Heyer. II. Title: Sylvester. III. Title: Wicked uncle. No view of the ornamental water could be obtained from this, the east front of Chance, but the undulations of a lawn shaved all summer by scythemen were broken by a cedar, and beyond the lawn the stems of beech-trees, outliers of the Home Wood, shimmered in wintry sunlight.
This was the third novel of Georgette Heyer’s that I found, again under the guise of an audio-book narrated by Richard Armitage. As usual his reading was perfectly paced, pleasant to listen to, and his vocal range deeply impressive.
I find Heyer entertaining more as a humorist than as a romantic. This leaves me in the weird position of having enjoyed the book even though the romance utterly failed me.
At first one wants to throttle Sylvester when one read how proud and vain he i. is only redeeming quality at this point is his love for his ill mother. However, when he's thrown into a situation where the tables are turned on him Sylvester is humbled by Phoebe, who only striking feature are her laughing eyes. I find Heyer entertaining more as a humorist than as a romantic. I think this is the first time I've gotten to the end of a romance and found myself wanting a fix-it fic where the main couple stays apart.

Sylvester or The Wicked Uncle. But when they reached the Roehampton Gate he was agreeably surprised to find his sister-in-law already there, and was beginning to feel quite in charity with her when he suddenly perceived that the sprig of fashion with her was not her brother but Sir Nugent Fotherby. Sir Nugent knew that Sylvester did not like him, but it never crossed his mind that Sylvester, or anyone else, held him in contempt. If he could have been brought to believe it, he would have known that Sylvester was queer in his attic, and he would have been very much shocked.
