About this title

Synopsis:

Raven-haired Minerva, eldest daughter of an impecunious vicar, When the Reverend Charles Armitage, an impecunious country vicar in Regency England, announces that raven-haired Minerva, the eldest of his six daughters, is to have her coming-out in London, the news is not well received by the rest of the family. Mrs. Armitage has one of her Spasms and has to be brought round by burning a quantity of feathers under her nose. Annabelle, the nearest in age to Minerva, is clearly jealous, the boys are all surly, and the other girls just start off crying. Minerva is despatched to Town under the wing of the disreputable old Lady Godolphin. Her task - to find a rich husband and thereby restore the ailing family fortunes. But the other five daughters will all get their chance, because "Minerva" is but the first volume in "The Six Sisters" series by Marion Chesney.

Product Description:

[Read by Charlotte Anne Dore]

The eldest of the six Armitage sisters, Minerva is enchantingly beautiful-- but a prude. Her father indulges a hearty passion for hunting instead of worrying about the girls' dowries. But when he wants to send his boys to Eton, the money must be found-- and how better than by marrying Minerva off to a man of fortune? Dispatched to town, Minerva experiences her first season under the wing of an elderly relative. But age, it seems, is no guarantee of respectability, and Lady Godolphin's plan for a good time scandalizes her young charge. Minerva's moralizing ways make her the subject of a shocking wager among the rakes and dandies of Regency London.
