Book review: ‘The Foundling’ by Georgette Heyer

Georgette Heyer died in at the age of seventy-one. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? I have just re-read this book for the umpteenth time. I know many love this one, but I have never been able to finish it in the forty years I’ve been reading Heyers.

My first draft of this review had a full paragraph devoted to him, but it was cut to meet the word limit. Lord Lionel being an advocate of what he considered a neat, plain dinner, only two courses were served at Sale Park when the family dined alone.

The Foundling by Georgette Heyer

Nov 12, Kevin rated it it was amazing. It was wonderful, fun, different, and just so entertaining. Gilly is one of the first type B heroes in Heyerdom and also one of the youngests, perhaps he is not so appealing to a great number of female readers, but for them as you have already said, there is his cousin Gideon. The main hero had his heroine, but their interactions were a little at the beginning and then at the end.


The plot meanders, never catching my interest; I just do not like her long-suffering heroine plots. I almost fell in love with Gideon at one point, myself.

Considering the relative simplicity of the plot, The Foundling is a surprisingly long novel. But Harriet is not getting her due!

He had a lot of servants, though, and several guardians. The story works a little better than Charity Girl, but it is still full of rather too much of the things Gilly is trying to escape, which is hard to endure in a book, let alone a whole life.

I completely loved it, and would have given it a full five had it not been for the few scenes here and there that were a tad too slow, and that often focused on characters I did not overly care about.
