A fairly slow moving story. Litrik fell in love with Sarah at first sight but is uncertain about pushing his claim. Sarah has been browbeaten by her Whiny mother and brute of a stepfather for years and lacks self confidence.

If anything, he is too cautious and several times it looks like he may have waited to long and given Sarah too many opportunities to meet other men or decide on a career.

All the the same it is a sweet and easy read. Nice to see one of Betty Neels enigmatic Dutchman pining rig

Sarah is on holiday in Holland with her mother and step-father when they are in a car crash. Unfortunately, neither of the parents is killed. Forgive me while I go off on a tangent here: Why on earth did TGB kill the lovely parents in The Vicar’s Daughter but allow the nasty/whiny/selfish ones here to keep living and making Sarah’s life miserable?

This book, I would say, is quite poignant and speaks of the old times. The story line moves subtly, nice representation of characters and good language, but somewhere in the story there were parts which I thought was weird.

Cute, light and frivolous.
Truly terrible. I was surprised since I thought Betty Neels is the British queen or romance, akin to Nora Roberts in the States, but this book is just badly written. There is a plot, I suppose, and the international angle is curious, but there is no sense of development of relationship, no emotional buildup, and the secondary characters are at times more vivid than protagonists. Its a mercifully short read.
It was fine, lots of meddling by the doctor.

Betty Neels was born on September 15, 1910 in Devon to a family with firm roots in the civil service. She said she had a blissfully happy childhood and teenage years, which stood her in good stead for the tribulations to come with the Second World War.
