Publisher's Summary

The Black Moth, the literary debut of the British author Georgette Heyer, is set around the 1750s. The intricate plot involves the nobility - good and bad - as they indulge in abduction, cheating at card games, duels, highway robbery, and elopement. Fortunately, repentance intervenes and all the threads come together in a happy ending.

Good story distracting narration

This being Heyer's first novel, you can see the beginnings of the humor and wonderful characterizations that are even more apparent in her later works. The main thing that bothered me was the narrator's voice for most of the characters. She managed to make them all sound like 70 yr. old men and women despite most of them being around 30 or younger. My favorite narrators are those that make me forget that I'm listening to a single person by developing a unique and appropriate voice for each character.

Didn't age well.

I love the author, but I had forgotten how abusive some of the characters are seen from today's vantage point. This is not one I would recommend when she has so many better books.
