Summary
The magical adventure that might result if Jane Austen wrote Ocean's Eleven, 'Valour and Vanity' is a Regency version of a heist movie with a healthy dose of magic sprinkled in for good measure. Following a family wedding, the Ellsworths and the Vincents set off on a tour of the continent. Glamourists Jane and Vincent plan to separate from the main party and travel to Murano to study with the renowned glassblowers there, but their ship is set upon by Barbary corsairs while en route. It is their good fortune that they are not enslaved, but they lose everything to the pirates and arrive in Murano destitute. Vincent hatches a reckless plan to get their money back. The ensuing adventure is a glorious envisioning of all the best parts of heist narratives, but in a Regency setting - with magic
