      Summary: "As a lover of animals and nature, Beatrix Hathaway has always been more comfortable outdoors than in the ballroom. Even though she has participated in the London season in the past, the classic beauty and free-spirited Beatrix has never been swept away or seriously courted...and she has resigned herself to the fate of never finding love. Has the time come for the most unconventional of the Hathaway sisters to settle for an ordinary man--just to avoid spinsterhood?..."--p. [4] of cover.

Reviews

LJ Reviews 2010 June #2

Appalled when her beautiful but amazingly shallow friend Prudence refuses to answer a letter from a former beau now fighting in the Crimea, Beatrix Hathaway, while never an admirer of the careless, aristocratic Christopher Phelan, senses his despair and agrees to respond, pretending to be Pru. It is only when the letters become something more that Beatrix knows she must end things, never thinking that Christopher would learn the truth—or be so furious when he does. The unconventional Hathaway household adds a sense of fun to this compassionate romance that examines the life-changing impact of war and the salutary effects of understanding and love. VERDICT Poignant and sweetly funny, this brilliantly rendered romance will have readers smiling through tears. Beatrix is the last of the five Hathaway siblings to marry, and fans will be reluctant to let this engaging Victorian family go. Kleypas (Tempt Me at Twilight) lives in Texas.
