Miriam was beautiful both inside and out, but very few saw her warmth, beauty and intelligence but focused on her legs that were crippled in an accident as a young child.I was so invested in Miriam's character that I was eager to see how her life with Vincent
would unfold. Her story was told with humor,warmth and great sensitivity.
When Miriam father dies she loses her home to her cousin, land and title are handed down to the next male in the family. Women either get married or live off the male relative that takes over. Miriam doesn’t want to get married, she doubts anyone would really want her since she has been lame since she was very young. She is a one of the few lucky ones, her father before he died make sure she had enough money so she wouldn’t have to get married or maybe he make sure she would have enough money to temp a man to marry her. Whatever the reason he loved her enough to take care of her.
With no where to go since she cannot find a home to fit her needs that she can afford she decides to enter into a marriage of convenience with Vincent. Vincent’s father just died and he has found he can’t get his money until he is either 25 or married. He is touched by the beautiful Miriam and knows her family is trying to wed her off to anyone no matter how old, fat or ugly he might be. He finds that he would very much like to marry her but just for convenience sake so he can help her and he can get his money. From here the book takes off with them dealing with issues, people looking down on them and people not being able to believe he would pick this women. For me this is where the book gets interesting, life has a way of turning the tables on even those with the kindest of hearts.
I found the characters to be delightful, you have a love story inside of a love story. I thought Miriam was a lovely lady who knew what she wanted. She was strong and stood her ground but at the same time had the kindest heart even when she was put down. Had she not been a cripple she would have had men chasing her down for her hand. People didn’t really see her beauty what they saw was her being a cripple. Once they got to know her they not only saw her beauty on the outside but on the inside as well.
Vincent is a sweetheart in so many ways, a strong male who know what he wants and goes after it. He saw past her being a cripple and gave back what she gave him. Even his mother who I tried not to like became a wonderful, loving, character that I just loved. All their friends were outstanding even though they might not understand. There is hurt and pain caused by each other and other people. This is going to be a long road for them to travel if they can only look deep and are will to admit they need each other. People and distance get in the way, can these two find their way into a loving marriage?
The only issue I really had with this book was the repeats at the beginning. He told the story and then she repeated. I felt if I read it once I didn’t need to reread it, but as the story moves on the author changes this and there are not many repeats at all. I did feel the book was a little slow in the begging but in no way does it take away from the story. It is pretty much a clean read but there is lots of passion as the book moves on. Wonderful passion of learning and giving. I recommend this book to anyone who just wants a wonderfully told story with light heartedness and humor. This was really a very humors read that will keep you smiling.
I truly enjoyed this book. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this genre.
