But after Julianna is instrumental in saving his life through her vigilant nursing during a life-threatening illness, he begins to have feelings that are NOT strictly avuncular. But how can he betray his beloved nephew by stealing his fiancée?
Julianna regrets her attraction to her husband because of her pledge to marry Crispin and because she knows her husband does not return her feelings. But there are times when she senses the sexual attraction between them. . . or is she imagining it? Even so, where does Crispin fit into all of this?
Will the two of them be able to overcome their mutual guilt to admit their feelings and fulfill their love?
The difference in their ages is 20 years, no more than Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester. This age difference was not uncommon in 18th century marriages. Frankly, I think vulnerable older heroes can be a welcome change from the younger ones, who have a tendency to flit from one woman to another in the blink of an eye. I'd like to see more older, mature heroes like this because, well, as exciting as it is to imagine being in love with a real Corinthian man-about-town, it's a bit harder to imagine him settling down with just one woman for the rest of his life.
In any case, the attraction fairly sizzles between these two conscience-stricken lovers, and I couldn't put the book down. This is an author who knows how to keep the reader's attention riveted.
I've read this book several times and each time I see more about Edmund and Julianna that I like. All the supporting people in the book are well fleshed out, making everything so believable. The descriptions of the countryside made me want to run through the morning dew in my bare feet!
It all adds up to a delightful afternoon of reading!
