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.
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.
