      After learning that her mother has spent their last penny, Elizabeth Watson discovers that an elderly man she never met has died and left her a large bequest. Mr. Lucius Atwater left Elizabeth the money because he so enjoyed a book she wrote on the Second Punic War (Ancient Rome). There are two conditions, however.

      A well-written regency with a twist on the usual "how will we get the heroine to London for the Season" plot. 3 1/2 stars.
