By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on May 10, 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
An enchanting Regency for first time writer Dorothy McFalls. I have seen a review slashing at this book, and frankly, all reviewers/readers need to take a deep breath and step back. All writers are first time writers. It's not an easy process, and if you cannot do it yourself, then you need to have compassion for those brave enough to achieve this amazing feet. Only one in maybe one hundred thousand books ever see print. So celebrate another writer who got that golden ring. McFalls has a wonderfully fresh voice, which quickly pulled me into the story. She has a good sense at storytelling; she laces it with a good sense of humour and produces a very enjoyable tale! As for any tiny glitches, lighten up, and enjoy this fun tale.
Viscount Radford Evers was injured at Waterloo when his horse fell upon him, leaving his leg crippled. Currently in Bath taking the waters, hoping it will help his bad limp, he is a foul mood despite the teasing of his best friend Lord Nathan Wynter, who is determined not to let his friend wallow in his fit of self-pity. This day, Radford felt more than self-loathing - he felt trapped. His mother arrived the night previous and is pushing Radford to find a bride. Whether to actually zero in on finding a wife or just to forestall mother dearest, Radford hits upon the idea of making a list of all the requirements of the perfect wife for him.
Humble tenant of Viscount Radford Evers, May Sheffers intercepted the eviction notice in the morning mail before her ailing Aunt Winnie saw it. May's parents has been off awandering, as they are apt to do, and her uncle is trying to have them declared dead. This has caused a shortage in their funds, one May hopes is temporary. May has petitioned Mr.

I enjoyed this book. The heroine is very likeable, and after trials finds
happiness. The book was inexpensive enough that I bought it based on the
blurb with out reading the reviews. I went to to buy the some other books by
McFalls: "The Marriage List" is the first McFalls' novel I have read and I will enjoy reading
more of her work.

I had no intention of writing a review, but saw the relatively low score for the book.
After reading the reviews, I found a number very negative,
which given the excellent storytelling in this book, was surprising.

Still recovering from injuries from the Battle of Salamanca, Viscount Evers has decided to succumb to parental pressure and marry. Even though he has a badly injured leg and he may always walk with a limp, Evers is still a matrimonial prize. And because he's still angry and bitter about his injuries, and because he has no real interest in exerting himself too much in order to find a wife, Evers makes a list of all the qualities he wants his future wife to have: good birth, respectable dowry, beauty, youth and a pliable nature. All the qualities that the lovely Lady Lillian Newberry possesses and non of which May Sheffers, a tenant of his that is being evicted for non payment of rents possesses. And yet Evers finds himself being unexpectedly drawn to the intelligent but dowdy young lady, making a mockery of his marriage list...

"The Marriage List," Dorothy McFalls, debut novel has more strengths than weaknesses. It is a very well written novel (though one of the previous reviewer's complaints about too modern language and phrases is true), with a nicely drawn cast of characters and a good plot that is competently and powerfully executed. And if you're looking for an emotionally engaging read with a strong character portrayal of the heroine, then you're bound to enjoy "The Marriage List." It's been a while since I've read such a poignant novel -- Dorothy McFalls did and excellent job of making me feel May's panic, hopelessness and her pain. I also thought that the author did a rather good job of making us see how confused Evers felt about his unexpected feelings for May, and how torn he was between doing the expected thing of courting the exceptional Lady Lillian and wanting to spend more time with May.

This story is long and painstakingly written, with so little hope for the principals you want to put them out of their miseries. The men are callous villains, manipulating the lives of the ladies. The ladies are frustrated individuals, vacillating between desperate grasps for happiness and self-sacrificial determination to throw over all happiness so others might be happier. The only humor in the piece is the horse. If you can make it through the first half of the book, you may well like the second half.

Viscount Radford Evers in surviving the battle at Salamanca sustained a crippling injury that eventually sent him to Bath in an effort that the healing waters would help to cure him. While the waters might heal the injury to his leg, the waters, so far were doing nothing to heal the bitterness in his soul because of the injury that kept him from riding his beloved horses. Forced to walk with a limp on a foot and leg that pained him constantly, his once cherry personality was decidedly grim. His best friend, Lord Nathan Wynter, was not about to let him wallow in self-pity and on one of his unannounced visits and on a whim they decided to make a list of attributes Evers considered essential and should look for in selecting the perfect wife. It was on this particular afternoon that May Sheffers and her best friend Iona stormed their way into Evers study, and Radford's life would never be the same. Other than good broad hips [perfect for child-bearing] May Sheffers held none of the attributes he desired in a mate.

May's parents had left her in the care of her Aunt Winnie and gone off to seek their fortune and adventure in exotic places. After not having been heard from for several years, May's uncle, a controlling Earl, had petitioned to have her parents declared dead, thereby as head of the household, gaining control of and cutting off May's funds. Since this had happened, the rent on May and Aunt Winnie's cottage in Bath had not been paid and Ever's man of affairs had sent an eviction notice. May needed to convince Evers to intervene in stopping the eviction and give her time to sort out the financial tangle.
