An Advantageous Marriage is a classic historical novel by Alice Chetwynd Ley: a traditional British, Regency romance, set in nineteenth-century England.
The scheming Turville family have met their match…
The aristocratic Turvilles had always deplored an unfortunate connection with Trade through the marriage twenty years previously of the Baron’s brother with the daughter of a Yorkshire manufacturer.
But, Eugenia, only child of this marriage is not only an orphan — she is also her grandfather’s sole heir and extremely wealthy.
Keen to keep the Turville money in the family, Lady Turville deigns to overlook her niece’s rustic manners in order to force a match between Eugenia and one of her sons.
But Eugenia is not the simple country girl she was expecting…
Will Lady Turville’s plans come to pass? Could Eugenia fall for one of her cousin’s charms?
Or will she make an advantageous marriage elsewhere…?
