I thought this book was very engaging and well-written. Butler really made you feel for Morgan and Miranda. Miranda's infirmity was very well drawn and very unusual for a romance novel. This was my first book by Butler, but I will definitely look for more.
I loved this unique and moving Regency. Nancy Butler has dealt with misconceptions and prejudices about loss and the pain of being thought "different" for those whose bodies or appearance are not "normal." Having loved ones who fit into both catagories, I was moved to tears and laughter as I read the accurate representations of the attitiudes and reactions of strangers, as well as, family and friends to those "differences." I congratulate and commend the author for her treatment of a sensitive issue that, for all our "progress," is as prevalent and ingrained now, as it was in the early 1800's. I know this book would not appeal to every reader, but I truly believe that it is a book that everyone should read.
