" "As a lover of animals and nature, Beatrix Hathaway has always been more comfortable outdoors than in the ballroom. Even though she 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?

Captain Christopher Phelan is a handsome, daring soldier who plans to marry Beatrix's friend, the vivacious flirt Prudence Mercer, when he returns from fighting abroad. But, as he explains in his letters to Pru, life on the battlefield has darkened his soul--and it's becoming clear that Christopher won't come back as the same man. When Beatrix learns of Pru's disappointment, she decides to help by concocting Pru's letters to Christopher for her. Soon the correspondence between Beatrix and Christopher develops into something fulfilling and deep...and when Christopher comes home, he's determined to claim the woman he loves. What began as Beatrix's innocent deception has resulted in the agony of unfulfilled love--and a passion that can't be denied...

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-06-15)

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.
