Georgette Heyer: Envious Casca

24 Festive Tasks: Door 21 – Christmas, Book:

Read a book whose protagonist is called Mary, Joseph (or Jesus, if that’s a commonly used name in your culture) or any variations of those names (e.g., Maria or Pepe), or a book with pines or fir trees on the cover, or a Christmas book.


I’m using Georgette Heyer’s Envious Casca (recently republished as A Christmas Party) — this month’s Christie Centenary side read — as my book for Christmas. It’s not only set during a (hyper-acrimonious) Christmas time family gathering; it also features a character named Joseph.
