I liked this book but I didn't love it. I found the first half of the book a little slow but I really liked the second half.

An inspiring story of a teacher at Miss Martin's School for Girls who is invited to visit Joshua Moore's household (his wife is Lady Freyja, one of the famous Bedwyn's) along with her son David. Anne was never married, and even though she wasn't willing-was blamed for becoming pregnant. During her stay with them, she meets Wulfric's steward Sydnam Butler, who had suffered horribly during the war and because of his physical scars-believes that no woman will have them.
Can an unwed mother and a war-scarred veteran find love?
A very good, and inspiring novel.

The "Simply" series has resparked my interest in the historial romance...having been diverted by the paranormal genre! What wonderful deeply scarred characters...filled with all the "what ifs" and misinterpretations that make love an exciting adventure! Well worth the read.

I think this is my favorite Balogh book to date. I just loved everything about it. The two wounded characters who find love and healing within each others arms, simply perfect. It was a beautiful, engrossing, angst-filled read and I have no nits to pick. It totally captured my attention and will be one I save to reread.

From the moment he was introduced as a secondary character I waited for Sydnam's story. Only a truly wonderful, special person was worthy of Sydnam Butler. I was very disappointed to see Mary Balogh give us a weak, watered down love interest such as Anne.

I won't go into all my dislikes about her - that would give away to much of the story - but suffice it to say, I found myself wanting my money back, even though I paid nothing for the book.

Although I enjoyed this book and it was a sweet read, I found it a little bit implausible. When Anne first meets Syd, she literally runs from him, his disfigurement is so terrible. Eventually, the two learn to look past physical beauty to see the real beauty within. Anne, an unmarried woman, has an illegitimate child as the result of a rape. Yet when she and Syd first make love, she has no qualms until she is within the act itself....a little unbelievable there. But overall, this is a good read, just not my favorite by her.
