Book Description: Arabella Birch had a less than happy introduction to Holland when she became involved in a road accident. It seemed destined that the first person on the scene should be Dr. Gideon van der Vorst, who took charge of the situation--and Arabella--in a very commanding way. When Arabella found herself involved professionally with the imposing doctor, she began to wonder if destiny had known what it was doing. Once her glamorous cousin Hilary caught sight of Gideon, it would be no use falling in love with him.

A Wonderful Betty Neels "rich, good-looking Dutch Doctor / plain, kind, British Nurse" tale that any Neels fan is sure to enjoy. Doctor Gideon van der Vorst is Hospital Medical Director in Doesburg while Arabella Birch is a Pediatric Nurse with a stammer. The issue of the stammer is well-done in an endearing manner. Arabella's beautiful, selfish, nurse-cousin is surprisingly more evil than usual and she, with the help of her family, works to "interest" Gideon in her instead of Arabella. Gideon's patience, persistence, and the manner in which he achieves his goal, though entertaining and satisfying, is "different" to say the least.

This is the story of Arabella, who is much put upon by her relatives. Her aunt and uncle aren't actively malicious, but they put her down and expect her to babysit and generally be a dogsbody when she is home from her hospital training.

Her cousin Hilary however is a nasty piece of work who is not above lying and manipulating to get her way. We know she is evil because she is dating a married man at the beginning of the book rather than go with a bus load of children with cerebral palsy to Holland as their nurse. Naturally she cons Arabella into doing it for her thus leading to her meeting our leading man.

Gideon is the rescuer when the bus crashes and he sees immediately the sterling worth of our Arabella, who shines in adversity. Thrown together when she nurses two of the children who were injured in the crash, they get to know each other and he invites her and the children to his home where he resides with his beautiful and lovely sister.

But the fly in the ointment comes when Arabella returns to England and Hilary immediately hones in on this attractive and very rich doctor. Hilary lies to everyone in her attempts to snabble the doctor.

Luckily, apart from one brief aberration, Gideon is immune from her manipulations. Even Nanny gets a happy ending.

Beauty is only skin deep as aptly portrayed in Ms. Neels' characterization of Hilary. Arabella, on the other hand, was quite beautiful because of her internal goodness. Gideon --- a wonderful character.

The story line was very good. Arabell is a believable female a little unsure about herself her problem with speech and the way her family treated her. Love prevailed and she is the winner.

Wonderful romance story. Always love the endings even though they leave you wanting more of the story. Love that they keep you interested all the way through.

I have read all her books, some a second time. They are like coming back to a good friend. I wish she had written more.

I have been buying Betty Neels books for my mother (in her 70's) at her request, as an introduction to using a Kindle. I can say without hesitation that she loves all of these books. As she has said, "The plots may all be somewhat similar and the stories quaint, but I enjoy them immensely and find them endearing." What better recommendation could there be? And the Kindle Paperwhite? She loves the backlight and the ability to make the font larger.
