The whole time I was reading it kept reminding me of Persuasion and it wasn't until the end that the author's notes clarified that it was indeed inspired by Austen's fantastic novel. There were plenty enough differences that it was obviously not a rewrite of Persuasion but it had the same second chance at love in its story and the same Austen-like feel. No wonder I loved it.
I loved all the main characters and almost all the minor characters as well. Can't love Mr. Macon. Horrible man. But everyone else was good and kind and lovable. Even the staff were good, loyal and supportive. Society doesn't play much of a role in the story so there isn't even snotty people who think they are better than others to dislike. I guess we can dislike Julia's father also but we just hear about him and never really meet his awful self.
I really can't think of anything I didn't like except a couple things. The death was sad and made me cry. It was heartbreaking reading the Baron's farewell scene with his young sons. So touching. But I would never want to take it out of the book. I just didn't like feeling sad and crying. And the other thing would be that I would have loved to see the court fight with Mr. Macon play out and him get put in his place. I'm sure it would have detracted from the love story wrap up but still the vindictive part of me would have loved to see it happen.
Their physician, Nathaniel Hastings, just happens to be the man Julia fell in love with during her first London season. They are frequently in each other’s company since he tends to Lord Macon.
I enjoyed the various depth to the characters and flashbacks into their past. Clean, sweet regency book. (If you are looking for dancing, dinners or trips to this or that, you won’t find it in this book as Lord Macon is dying)
My reason for 4 Stars- there is a mention of a guardianship issue but it was never brought up later in the book. I would have also enjoyed a follow up of Lady Macon at the end.
Doctor Nathaniel Hastings has a satisfying practice in Bath. He enjoys helping others, even when the patient will not recover. He only wishes his heart would recover from its disappointment. He has tried to get over her rejection, and thought himself successful until Providence stepped in with other plans.
The Gentleman Physician by Sally Britton is a sweet and clean Regency romance. Set against the quiet backdrop of Bath, Julia and Nathaniel must deal with their immediate duties, as well as their feelings for each other. I truly liked both of their characters, as well as the well developed supporting characters. Although the pace was slow, the descriptive writing helped to keep if from being boring. I like that this author is true to the period in both dialogue and customs. I also was please with the satisfying ending.
This is a stand-alone that is suitable for any reader over 12. Although Julia and Nathaniel's story is complete, for an ending to the secondary story of Lady Heatherton, you will need to read The Earl's and His Lady.
