I love Georgette Heyer novels. The Foundling ranks up there among my favorite of her novels so far. In the Foundling, the Duke of Sale, a young man with a very long name, is called Gilly for short. Becoming the heir at a young age, he was guarded from any sickness, calamity, etc. by his well-meaning family and servants his entire life. Deciding to break free at the age of 24, Gilly decides to help out his cousin Matthew by solving an embarrassing problem. Gilly sets off and discovers the world and has many adventures. Some of his adventures were quite hilarious, and all were very enjoyable. I highly recommend this novel!
