My Lady Caprice Reviews
I'm baffled. How did Farnol go from this gentle, sweet story to Winds of Change? Dick is a poor young man with an unfortunate habit of being a boy's best friend (better known as the Imp), to his own detriment. He gets turned into Little John, The Black Knight, a pirate and even an Injun.It kind of reminded me of Station Jim. There was the incorrigible Imp, the young man who was always getting into scrapes in front of his lady love and Lisbeth, who tried her very best to appear serious and annoyed, but just couldn't manage it. It's a comical and fun romp, I wouldn't recommend it as a first Farnol since it is so different from his others. If you like The Money Moon, you would most likely enjoy this. I don't think its as well worked out, but it does have a more likable heroine. The only complaint I have is that all the misunderstandings could easily have been cleared if the characters gave each other the chance to speak.My favorite memory from this book is the runaway boat…G rating,a few Ds, nothing else. Note: If this story hadn't made me laugh a few times it would have been 3 1/2
The Chronicles of the Imp, more commonly known as My Lady Caprice was a very light romance novel centering on Dick trying to woo Lisbeth into choosing him over another with more prospects. Dick strikes up a sort of friendship with Lisbeth's nephew known as the imp. Dick uses the imp to get closer to Lisbeth, but he really does enjoy the little guy. Very cute story and wonderful scenery description!
One of his early books, and it is fun and light-hearted.
4.5 Stars. Another book by Farnol that I enjoyed reading. I love The Imp, what a fun and entertaining character.
A fun, light-hearted romance. Not so much romance really but more of a romp with the Imp. So funny.
Farnol wrote a fine ripping yarn and this is a good example of his work: Regency setting, unconventional female protagonist, well-defined and interesting villains. Well worth tracking down.
