Matthew Cleaves has always put the people of Bidderstone first before himself and his life, then again that is what his father expected of him as the squire. When Matthew married Elizabeth, he never expected that his wife would have an affair with another and leave him, making him withdrawn and unable to focus on his work. When Jane announces that she is to move to Bath with her maid, everyone is shocked even more so Matthew who doesn't even know how to react to the news of possibly losing Jane from his life forever.
After Jane arrives in Bath, it doesn't take her long to feel at home and have a passion to help children who are without in the worst parts of the city. When she needs Matthew's help with getting the job she is hesitant to ask as she knows that he would become a part of her new life, something which she didn't really want. Something shifts in both Jane and Matthew's relationship causing their feelings to come out in a dangerous way that would go against the vows that Matthew made and Jane's pride in her new life. This makes them realise what they knew all along and how it will change their lives as they know it.
My favourite character would have to be Jane, she is so strong and it made her seem so sure of herself even though she still has moments when she is unsure. With her independent streak and loveable nature, she is someone who people could look up to and you are rooting for her to get what she wants in her life as she deserves it.
Her One True Love is a heartbreaking story about love, friendship and finding your place in life. With the passion, love and moving story, it tells you about how sometimes your one true love is in front of you all along. If I had to sum this book up in three words, they would be Inspiring, Captivating and Sweet.
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.
In the end, I loved Jane and Matthew's story. It took awhile for them to finally get to the end. At times, I wanted to slap Matthew upside his head for being an idiot but in the end...he did that himself.
In closing, I hate that the series is ended (?) or will be ending. I have fallen in love with Thomas, Monica, Emily, Will, Laura, Adam, Jane, and Matthew. You write such beautiful Victoria romances that it will be hard for me to pick up another one. They are intelligent, well thought out, with characters that are well developed and that you care about. As you know, most historicals bore me because of the details. I love characters and your's come to life every single time.
