NonFiction: Georgette Heyer’s Regency World

Georgette Heyer’s Regency World: A definitive guide for all fans of Georgette Heyer, Jane Austen, and the glittering regency period”

 By Jennifer Kloester

This is a really interesting  and entertaining book, full of information on society during this period right down to the real address for “Gunter’s confectioner’s shop” (which opened by an Italian pastry Chef  in 1757 at 7 Berkeley Square in London ) pertinent to Jane Austen’s novels, however this book references more closely the novels of Georgette Heyer.

I particularly liked the real history of the various institutions and individuals mentioned in most regency novels, this background information is not usually mentioned in either novels published in the past and or current novels. I find these details illuminating and gives a deeper perspective on the times.

This is a well researched and interesting reference.
