|Plot Summary of The Grand Sophy|
|"Sophia Stanton-Lacy's father sets off for the Americas, leaving Sophy with her reluctant aunt and her family. Soon after arriving the resourceful Sophy sees that her aunt's family is in turmoil - the eldest son is engaged to a horrible woman (almost as odious as cousin charles himself), the second son is having problems with moneylenders, and the daughter has fallen in love (she thinks) with a totally unsuitable (but admittedly hot) poet. Soon Sophy gets to work - quickly dealing with the moneylenders, she earns the respect and loyalty of both sons, the eldest of whom starts to regret his engagement (with the help of some of Sophy's well-timed and revealing comments about his horse-faced fiancee)...
A more difficult problem, however, poses itself in the lovestricken daughter and her poet. Sophy meets her spurned former suitor, discovers he is still in love with her, and decides to reunite them... by making her so jealous that she will beg to have him back. Who is to be the object of the poor girl's jealousy? Sophy, of course!
But she's not the only who gets jealous - Charles himself is suffering too."
