If you choose to read The Elusive Miss Ellison because you love Regency, you might wish to investigate first, then choose. On the other hand, if you want a ‘Christian’ story, this might well be just your cup of tea.
For the life of me, I can not understand why a person would choose to set a book in the Regency period, and not include any part of the glitter and glam and sparkle and above all – wit! — that made it one of the most interesting decades of all time Technically, the Regency was from 1811-1820, when Prince George served in lieu of his father, King George III, who was ill. The younger man became George IV on the death of his father, and was king until his death in 1830, so some sources extend the Regency from 1800 until 1830, when the next brother, William, became King. Still, it is not a totally elastic time frame.
