Sylvester: or The Wicked Uncle

Sylvester: or The Wicked Uncle - Georgette Heyer At first glance, the subtitle of this book was somewhat confusing. Granted, that's likely because the copy I borrowed from the public library was a (first edition?) hardcover completely lacking a dust jacket, so there was no summary or blurb or anything else of that sort. Still, it took a bit for the "wicked uncle" part to be made clear.

Sylvester, Duke of Salford, and Phoebe Marlowe are delightfully entertaining characters, with plenty of quirks. I also loved the various secondary characters in this story--Edmund is a particularly adorable little imp.
