Eulalia Warburton is working in a flower shop and struggling to make a life with her old friend, Trottie and her deceased cousin's eight year old son, Peter. Fenno van Linssen is a wealthy doctor who walks into her flower shop and much to her dismay, keeps showing up in her life. Fenno is engaged to a beautiful but selfish woman who is only marrying him for the prestige of being a doctor's wife. Fortunately, he realizes this before he marries her and works things out satisfactorily between him and Eulalia.
The characters are great, Peter and Trottie are especially well-written. There's even a second love story that will make readers smile.
Reading Betty Neels is like drinking hot chocolate on a cold winter's night, her books makes you feel warm and cozy.
