Hannah Fletcher is determined to fulfill her promise to her now dead mistress to look after the children in her care. When Colonel Gavin Romney, Earl of Hawkehurst, arrives from battle, injured and exhausted, she decides to use the time to help him bond with his children. Can these two readjust the judgments they made about each other and find love along the way?
This one left me conflicted. They both made vows to dying vows, but neither one was willing to see things from the other's point of view. Hannah herself annoyed me the majority of the time. While I could understand her feelings, I found her to be pushy and I found myself skimming over much of her dialogue.
Gavin did not annoy me as much, but he did make me roll my eyes quite a bit. I'm hoping the rest of the series is a bit more entertaining. (less)
Because this was a story about a man dealing with the loss of his best friend at Waterloo and the promise made, it was a bit too much war and Napoleon. But the story did give you more insight for why men choose war over family. The romance part was more a counseling for the soldier and the governess. Each had previous, negative family experiences to get over. It was a lovely read and the immense research of that part of history was appreciated.
I love these novels about this group of young orphans who helped each other survive and find their happily ever after that they all assumed would never be them. Wow... that was a mouth full! There are many meaningful moments that are very inspiring. Here is an example: “I put so much energy into guilt and regret, yet they could not change a single moment of my past. All they did was spoil the present and threaten my future.” Very profound.
I really enjoy these stories of the 5 orphans but the only suggestion I might give is this. Please shorten the poor ramblings of the characters minds. My goodness I had to skip over some of the ridiculous conclusions these characters come up with.
Knowledge does help bring understanding. As Gavin and Hannah learn more about each other it brings understanding of the reason for their actions, close family ties and eventually love. This group of ladies have certainly earned the love they find.
