really liked it

The setting for this historical romance is a 'madhouse' to which the heroine has been cruelly dispatched. All her efforts to escape have come to nothing when a new Doctor arrives who might offer hope of escape.

Helen is a fascinating heroine, both captive and wronged and also constantly scheming and trying to figure out ways to turn people and situations to her advantage. She's also deliciously in touch with her own desires and unashamed in pursuing them. Watching her slowly realise that her feelings for the new Doctor are genuine is an absolute pleasure.

The Doctor himself is appealingly humble: restrained, educated, doubting himself, a simple farmworker who has bettered himself but will never consider himself handsome. They're a mismatched pairing in the best way

They finally come together after a goodly amount of delayed gratification, and there's a satisfying happy ever after.
