Gold as Heart
This story didn't grab me right away and didn't keep me interested. Jumped to the end.

I really enjoyed this book by Jeanne savery. She really had a great talent in writing. I have been reading her books as I can get them via inter library loans through my library and have been enjoying them. Her books a lot of readers have felt are slow and not page turners. It is true that her stories are more dealing with the simple day to day activities of life back then and the emotions of her characters. There is not much action in most of her books it is more character development. I enjoy her books because her characters come alive and you know them by the end of the book.

In "The House Party," Jeanne Savery takes on the monumental task of dealing with four romance subplots with varying degrees of success.

Almost 20 years ago, beautiful and talented actress Diane Runyard said good-bye to her lover, Steven Cartwright (later Baron Cartwright), when his father secured an advantageous marriage for him. Now, Diane is one of the leading comedic actresses of her time, and, in a twist of irony, is being courted by her ex-lover's only son, 18 year old Steven at Lord Witherspoon's country estate. (Lord Witherspoon is an aficionado of the theatre, much to his practical daughter's, Francine, despair, and has just finished building a new and spectacular theatre on his estate. Lord Witherspoon hopes to stage a new production of "Oedipus" and has secured the services of Diane and her friend and colleague, Roger Brown, to help train the amateur actors, all members of the ton who are interested in the theatre.) And when Baron Cartwright gets word of the fact that his only son and heir is making up to an actress, he descends on Witherspoon's estate, determined to strike the fear of God into this upstart actress' heart. The last thing he expected was to see Diane again, looking to vibrant, lovely and appealing, or to come face to face with all his old, suppressed feelings of love. Can he hope to secure Diane's affections again? And what of the complication of his son?

While "The House Part" was a pleasant enough read, it suffered from having too many things going on. This meant that the author was unable to focus with real depth on the subplots -- in this case, the more interesting subplots. The main focus of this novel was the Diane-Lord Cartwright-young Steven subplot. Unfortunately, while Diane was an engaging and appealing heroine, the same cannot be said for Baron Cartwright, who came across as a stiff and arrogant man. His frequent dismissal of his son was a tad grating, and the author's later bid at explaining the coolness between father and son didn't really cut any ice with me. And truth to tell, the very young and immature Steven, was a better drawn character -- one even got the sense that with a few more years and maturity, that young Steven would be a hero to contend with -- and even the baron's dead father made more of an impression, than the baron did. The character that stole the book, however, was the cynical and sarcastic Sir Cyrall, who displayed unexpected depths, intelligence and sensitivity, and literally carried the book. Unfortunately, his romance subplot took on shades of the gothic, and was more "told" than "shown." The other two romance subplots left a lot to be desired as well. (And I really couldn't understand why the supposed bluestocking of the book, Eustacia Fairchild, never bothered to figure out why her friend never bothered to figure out the significance of her name and why her friend, Rafe, refused to call her by her given name, until the very end of the novel. It's the sort of totty-headed behaviour bluestockings frequently indulge in in these Regencies, and which usually drive me to fits of exasperation! )

The real trouble was that because the main romance subplot proved to be a rather uninteresting one for me, I had counted on the other subplots to pull me in. But because these were minor subplots were really background fillers for the main storyline, they were not properly developed, so that the overall effect was that this was a nice read but that something, ultimately, was lacking. On the other hand, "The House Party" was a very well written novel, with some fairly interesting and appealing characters (namely Diane and Sir Cyrall), so that all in all I'd vote this as an averagely good 3 star read.
