In most of Heyer’s novels the weather is fine and characters are rarely stopped from driving in the park or doing some shopping. But in Sylvester the weather at the start is cold and miserable, Keighley gets a bad cold and Sylvester has to do more than he bargained for. Alexandra Harris’s excellent book Weatherland: Writers and Artists under English Skies is a fabulous look at changing English attitudes to the weather and how it is reflected in books, poems and paintings.
