‘Her One True Love’ is a beautifully-written love story set in Victorian England.
Jane Danes is a young woman, living in the small, rural village of Biddlestone. For many years, Jane has been in love with the town’s Squire, Matthew Cleaves. However Matthew has never known of Jane’s love for him, marrying another woman, and leaving Jane heartbroken.
After both her parents die, Jane decides to move out of the village and into the family home, located in the city of Bath.
She wants to make something of herself, and help others in the process. She feels that the time is right to move on, knowing that the one person that she has loved forever, can never be hers.
Matthew is a decent, hard-working man, who married his wife Elizabeth without actually being in love with her. When Elizabeth leaves him for another man, Matthew is humiliated, more than upset. He doesn’t want other peoples’ pity, and certainly not Jane’s.
This is a story of two people being so very much in love, that they are to blind to see how the other one feels.
I loved Jane’s character. She is a very headstrong young woman, with a fire in her belly, and a determination to change her life from the path that she is destined for.
The book is set in an era of change for women. An era of suffragettes, and women realising that they can be independent, and that they don’t have to just become wives and mothers.
Rachel has broken all norms that you associate with Victorian England.Read more ›
You have done it again with Jane and Matthew's story. Was I fan of the whole thing about Matthew married in name only thing? Not really because I have a thing about cheating and adultery but you handled it very well. I honestly thought we'd see more of Elizabeth but her scenes were perfect for the story. Karma is good, right?
Speaking of karma...seeing Monica and Thomas living so happily was a joy to see. Monica is still tough when it counts but she understood why Jane had to leave. It's got to be a sister thing with those two. Living at the manor for both of them was stifling and to go out on your own in Victorian England was just unheard of. Jane had spunk, just like Monica and it showed. Loved her scenes with the board and especially the house that she ended up working with.
I would have to say that I'm most impressed with Laura and Adam since we last saw them. True friends to the end for the Danes sister and the talking to that Adam gave Matthew was priceless. :) Also, the scenes at their house with their children. LOL! It was easy to picture those two without a nanny and truly being hands on parents.
Matthew...I have to admit that I didn't like him in the beginning. Sorry but I just didn't. He had so much more growth to go through than Jane. In fact, it really wasn't until he decided to sponsor Jane and Jeannine that I actually started to like him. I found him to be too eager for Jane and without resolving his marriage with Elizabeth...and also his handling of the business with the town. He had to figure out a way to be with Jane and not sacrifice what he was born to do. At the same time, he needed to realize that Jane was an independent woman and had her own goals.Read more ›
Miss Jane Charlotte Davis lives in Marksville House with her sister, Monica and her husband, Thomas. She has been in love with Squire Matthew Cleaves since she was a child.
Matthew married another woman who ended up leaving him to be with her lover. Even with his pain, he tries to carry on with life. The prosperity of the town of Biddestone depends upon him.
Things between Jane and Matthew have been strained. Jane is also angry that Matthew has been so devastated by his wife’s infidelity and she would like to see him stop brooding and get a grip on his life again.
Jane was the caregiver for her mother for many years. The woman was hateful and difficult and unthankful to Jane. Now that her mother has passed away, Jane has decided that she wants to move to Bath to live in the home that was left to her by her father. She plans on working there and will take her maid, Jeannie, with her to be her companion.
Once in Bath, Jane find a boarding house for children where she wants to volunteer her help. The children she sees there don’t seem happy and that upsets her.
When Matthew and Jane meet up in Bath, he is happy to do what he can to help Jane get a job providing what help she can to the children in the boarding house. Their togetherness sparks an attraction that has always simmered between them. This realization is what makes Matthew decide that he must finally take action and divorce his wife.
Jane is a very independent young woman and while she loves Matthew, she knows she will not be content to just be a wife. She needs to be involved with helping people.
Will there be a future for their relationship?
This is a clever and clean story which I enjoyed. I’m sure other readers will as well.
