Tilda was married off to a rich gentleman over thirty years her senior. A fate all the more cruel because she had already fallen in love with a man who could never be hers. Years later, her circumstances are much changed and she is at last free to live as she chooses.

Oh, it was all just a Big Misunderstanding!

I was disappointed in this book because I'd read another book by Elizabeth Rolls and had become an instant fan. I expected this book to be just as interesting and thrilling but it wasn't. I didn't find the plot engaging and if I hadn't connected with Tilda, I wouldn't have finished this book. Most of the characters were cliche and I didn't see the reasoning for a lot of thing that happened. It felt like Ms. Rolls threw things in that didn't belong in this story.

I didn't see why it was so importa

I decided to read this book because my friend has read a few of Elizabeth Rolls' books and has recommended a few to me. Something I really like in this book is how dominant and strong Tilda was even though she had to go through a horrible childhood. I felt like Tilda was very resilient to most of the negative things that her family did to her when she came back after the death of her husband. Something I did not like was how her Uncle treated her and how she was forced into marriage with some on ...more

I liked the main character very much. She is very strong, but believably so given the time period. I enjoyed the book, until I was about 2/3 through it. The main couple were together, yet the story didn't end. Rolls spent all this time writing about misunderstandings and a boring subplot about poachers. I was disappointed, since the book had started so well.

from abxc 12/11; fairly good English historical romance about a widow who is her cousin's chaperone who finds herself falling in love with the intended during a house party. Which is just as well - the cousin is in love with someone else anyway.

Loved it! A lovely story written with humour and poignancy.
Not one of my favorite ones. I got one more book to read of hers.
I love this author, and this book was great. A little heavy on the tragic misunderstandings, but at least they didn't do anything TSTL as a result.

I think it paled in comparison to other books I have read these days, but overall, it was ok

One of my favourite romance novels. The wordplay between the two characters is delightful.

We live in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia, in a beautiful lush valley full of apple, pear and cherry orchards. We moved here a couple of years back, escaping from the city and it’s just gorgeous. The property is small, only five acres, but we have room for two small noisy boys, three dogs, two cats and several woolly things masquerading a environmentally friendly lawnmowers. Before that we ...more
