A Civil Campaign

by Lois McMaster Bujold

Don't switch off if you usually don't read science fiction. Essentially this is a romantic comedy and, although futuristic, has the flavour of a Regency romance. One of a number of books featuring Miles Vorkosigan, it stands on its own but could draw you into reading the whole series.


'You, my dear, have a very eligible offer.'
'Offer of what?' Rosalie wasn't likely to be bringing her a new garden design contract. But surely she couldn't mean -
'Marriage, what else? And from a proper Vor gentleman, too, I'm pleased to report. So old fashioned of the man, he sent a Baba all the way from Vorbar Sultana to your Da in South Continent - it quite bowled the old man over. Your Da called Hugo to pass on the particulars. We decided that after all that baba-ing rather than do it over the comconsole someone ought to tell you the good news in person. We're all so pleased to think you might be settled soon.'
