About this Recording

HEYER. G.: Faro's Daughter (Abridged)

Fiery, strong-willed Deb Grantham, who presides over a gaming house with her aunt, is hardly the perfect wife for the young and naive Lord Mablethorpe. His lordship’s family are scandalised that he proposes to marry one of ‘faro’s daughters’, and his cousin—the proud, wealthy Max Ravenscar—decides to take the matter in hand. Ravenscar always gets his way, but as he and Miss Grantham lock horns, they become increasingly drawn to each other. Amidst all the misunderstandings and entanglements, has Ravenscar finally met his match?
