She did not disappoint in this book. The hero was young and really wanted to go fight in the Napoleonic Wars. His father told him he would buy him a commission if he would marry the daughter of a friend, who was only 16 and still had her puppy fat, etc. He was head over heels in love with a sophisticated beauty - who affianced herself to his brother right before the wedding. He agreed to marry the young girl for the commission to join the army, but did not have the maturity to make the best of the situation (and the beauty he was in love with was piling on the agony for him). He said some unforgivable things before he left, was disowned by his family, and essentially there were only a few letters (with more missed in between) between him and his wife and any other member of his family.

He is injured, and writes to ask his wife to come and she refuses. He finally makes it home after the war and finds himself not welcome at all. He has matured, accepts his responsibility, wants a solid marriage and family. He does not accept responsibility for the missed letters and I think he is right. There were some things he just had no way of knowing, and having come through the war, this man knows what to take responsibility for and what is just chance. My opinion is that he stepped up when he got home. There were a bunch of bad reviews about this book, but I thought both characters were depicted realistically. There was no insta-forgiveness. It took time for the relationship between the hero and his wife - and his son - to become a healthy one.

I highly recommend.
I could have really liked this book but as the other reviewer already stated a lot of this book was flashback and not intersections between characters which made it hard to become invested in the characters. Once the H and h FINALLY talk it is 80 pages into a 200 page book. Unfortunately, instead of the H apologizing for his wrong doing and making amends he plays the "poor me" card and actually said that he was MORE wronged than the h. He apologized, that should be enough, get over it. I found very little redeeming qualities in the H. Even in the end he said to the h that beauty is not the most important thing in a female therefore he has fallen in love with her. What kind of back handed complement is that?

If you want to read a book with a very similar plot and a better H, Try Courting His Countess. This H also does the h a great wrong, leaves for six years but upon his return, he completely owns his actions, apologizes and takes steps to build his relationship with the h. Even though this story is shorter, it is much better than this one.

I liked this book - worth maybe 3 1/2 stars -- the storyline was good. Much of the beginning was Scott remembering the past. I would have preferred conversation during the actual events then just the memories. It contains a typical storyline -- man marries then abandons wife for war. Wife (who is usually mousey) turns into attractive and admired woman, then man returns-- What was different is that Scott truly put Laura through the ringer before he left telling her how much he disliked her and why. Scott was forced to marry his pudgy childish country neighbor because his father wanted him to. Deep in debt, Scott was promised the freedom of a commission in the army if he agreed to his father's wish. Laura had been told that he wanted the marriage and was devastated by his callous treatment!

The bulk of the story is after Scott's return from war. He is older and wiser and wishes to make a real marriage. Laura who never really stopped loving him guards her heart carefully. There is rivalry for her affections by an old enemy of Scott's which also adds a little intrigue into the story. Also, the woman Scott had loved before marrying Laura makes her appearance. She married and was then the widow of Scott's brother (the former Earl). There is also a "secret" which I will not reveal. The use of letters in the beginning of the book is very appealing. You find out how words can be misinterpreted when seen in another light.

Good book but I never got over my dislike of Scott's early treatment of Laura. I didn't think he apologized very well and I am not so sure I would forgive him as easily as Laura, though he does secure her affections in the end.
