    4.5 Right from the beginning real life war hero Harry Smith crackles with life energy for the most part, so did this book, other than one part where GH just seemed to show off her research skills She obviously drew extensively on George Simmons diaries I don t think most of his appearances drove the plot along much.Juana Smith is well drawn she is a fascinating mass of contradictions brave, hardworking loyal, but also jealous

    I ve given this a B for narration and a B for content at AARAlthough Georgette Heyer is principally known for writing a large number of sparkling Regency Romances and Comedies of Manners, she also wrote a number of mysteries and several books of historical fiction based on real events One of the best known of these is An Infamous Army, which is said to include some of the most well researched descriptions of the Battle of Waterloo, a

    A Regency romance with the focus on Captain Brigade Major Harry Smith and the Spanish bride he takes into his heart, Juana, at the end of the siege of Badajos For a switch, the marriage takes place at the beginning of the story while their married life plays out against the Peninsular War of Napoleon versus Wellington.You cannot pick up a novel or history of the Peninuslar War without some reference to Captain Harry Smith and his Juana Whil

    This barely fictionalized true story was so engaging I read Harry Smith s memoirs, and then Captain John Kincaids memoirs Imagine my surprise when some of the dialog Heyer used was right out of their own pens Not just a wonderful love story, but a great and exciting history of the Peninsular War and livestyle of Wellingtons officers and troops Harry and Juana spent the rest of their lives together and she went on almost every posting he had in his

    Oh, my gosh When I saw that this was based on a true story I didn t realize that it was based on real, and very famous people Harry Smith, who was with Wellington at Waterloo and other campaigns against Napoleon, was also part of the brigade that burned down the White House which he said was one of his biggest regrets and was in South Africa for many years Ladysmith is named after his wife And what a wife she was Married in order to give her his protecti

    My Eleventh Georgette Heyer Based on the true story of Harry Smith and his wife Juana Mar a de los Dolores de Le n Smith, this book ismilitary fiction than romance Heyer did a great deal of research in order to bring to life army life, their comradeship and hardships While she does portray the army patriotically, she does not gloss over the damage they can and do inflict.Convent raised orphan Juana is introduced in the 9th chapter and it s insta love between h

    Without a doubt I have enjoyed this book and I appreciate Heyer s work a want to be most historically accurate.This novel reminds me An Infamous Army very much And like with that book I am torn with the rating To really appreciate the information one can find here I should have read it with a detailed map on my desk and I should constantly have marked the movement of armies But it isn t something that I am interested much in.The story of Harry and Juana was interestin


  8. Hannah Cobb Hannah Cobb says:

    I never know what to expect from a Heyer novel because she was such a prolific writer This one was frankly disappointing It s pretty much a four hundred page history text about the Peninsular War 1808 1814 , and Wellington s many victories against the French The protagonists Brigade Major Harry Smith and his fourteen year old bride, Juana are engaging, but largely because this is based in fact, not fiction they never develop or do much of anything except fall in love and sur

    With this one, if you wade through the many paragraphs on fighting and history their is a really sweet story The writing dialog isn t Heyer s best, it readslike a biography to me, and parts of it dragged Although, the second half of the book gets much better and the battlesenjoyable to read Even for just getting to see Heyer s research skills Plus, if you like Heyer s Regencies, towards the end of the story, Juana hangs out in London it reminds you of her other books just a b With

    This is so not what I expected The foreword had warned me and I should have put back this book on its virtual shelf then.The strength of Georgette Heyer regards historical romance is her ability to twist the plot, to involve too many melding and interfering characters, all that written in a light and rather humoristic tone, that makes it all generally a fluffy but highly entertaining romantic comedy.In this case, this is not too be expected.Georgette Heyer had most probably been enthralle
