Blurb:
A WARM, WITTY AND CHARMING TALE OF PASSION MISTAKEN FOR LOVE AND OF LOVE LOST AND FOUND

Jane Lockhart is something of a plain Jane. So when charismatic, fiery Evangelical preacher William Harris asks for her hand she is understandably dazzled. Soon after the wedding night, however, she realises that something is horribly wrong. Furthermore, she makes the agonising discovery that the man she really loves is somebody she had always known, an older man, who returns her passion. But he is now about to marry someone else. Only a miracle can deliver Jane from her misery. But a miracle is being prepared.

A Daily Telegraph quote on the back cover says it all;
'As passions seethe beneath quiet gentility, this agreeable Austenesque tale of missed opportunity and thwarted love moves towards its required romantic ending by means of an unexpectedly modern twist. Sue Limb's message is that everyone has a right to happiness, regardless of the conventions of the time, and she conveys this with the most persuasive charm' Daily Telegraph

'Witty, sharp and every bit as charming as its heroine - and that is very charming indeed...' The Times

While that Times quote on the front cover recognises various facets Limb utilises to make this sing so effectively. It's no surprise to find the acutely perceptive eye that informed others of Limb's books I have read, also offers up such a rigorous backbone to this Austensque tale. It's brilliant!

Have a plan to 'release' this at the Old Gang, (of Edinburgh BookCrossers) Meet-Up on Sunday 27th November, 2022. In the interim marking it is as Available.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Released directly into the hands of another lovely BookCrosser, not sure who though, at a wonderful Old Gang, of Edinburgh BookCrossers Meet-Up. In the midst of loads of chit-chat I lost track of the book as it went from hand to hand. I'm so hoping its next reader finds it as interesting as I did.

Here we are, with the closing of the Filmhouse Cafe Bar back at Biblos where we used to meet-up years ago. Hugs rainbow3

I began this one but found it all a bit too obvious and I think it could have done with more of Austen's subtlety. Sometimes that wouldn't bother me, but I found it getting in the way this time. Rather than hold on to this one, I'll be wild releasing it.

Released 1 mo ago (12/4/2022 UTC) at Little Free Library - Meadows Community Garden in Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom
