“It is abominable, Sophy!"
“Yes, if the motive were not pure!”
The Grand Sophy - Georgette Heyer
While I love way too many women in books my first thought and my final choice is Miss Sophia Stanton-Lacy, from The Grand Sophy.
She is nosy, bossy, unmanageable, independent, funny, different and so bright and everything I wish I were.
