This is a many time reread for me. It's the book I go to when I'm in a slump or struggling with what I'm reading at the time.
It's a wonderful story of a doctor who has to turn his back on his wealthy upbringing and work in the very poor part of Brighton. He meets Anne, an heiress. Of course they fall in love but there are many obstacles in the way. Anne's aunt was a great character and I enjoyed reading her part in the story. She has her own romance too which comes about kind of by accident.

One nice quote but the other 99% of the book was ruined by both the characters.

"Lui si congedò con la consapevolezza che nonostante i suoi tentativi non era riuscito a convincerla a stargli lontana. Anne non intendeva voltargli le spalle, proprio come lui non poteva voltarle a lei. Era impossibile."

La trama di base è abbastanza banale, ma ci sono tanti piccoli tocchi di originalità che mi hanno piacevolmente stupita ^_^ a cominciare dal protagonista Justin: non è la è prima volta che trovo l'accoppiata "lei più nobile di lui" ma a differenza dei soliti plebei arricchiti (K

I read this book hoping to learn a bit more about how to write a romance. I didn't enjoy the read, but I did learn three important things NOT to do:

Lesson number one: If you put your hero and heroine together in a scene, something important had better change or develop between them. (There were far too many scenes between hero and heroine where one or the other of them made an excuse to leave before things got interesting.)

Lesson number two: The hero may be flawed, and he'll be all the more real
It was good though the ending with Sophie seemed a little rushed.

Born in Singapore to a Dutch-South African father and an English mother, Mary Nichols came to England when she was three and considers herself totally English. Her father, like many people who learn English as a second language, would have no sloppiness, either spoken or written, and Mary puts her love of the language down to him. He was also a great reader and there were always books in the house ...more
