And “the veil is lifted” to him He The Dukes Gamble declares his love to her but Janeoes not believe his love will last Then things get interestin. This book is so wonderful I really really enjoyed and loved it There were some humorous parts some tense parts some that were lovely and beautiful and some that made ME WANT TO CRY I LOVED want to cry I loved the life like characters and their Unmasking the Marquess (Hold Your Breath, development was very wellone Definitely one of my favorite romancesMuch of a hidden gem The Rosary follows Jane Champion who thinks herself rather plain and unattractive When handsome Garth Dalmain promptly falls hard for her it takes a horrifying accident for her to accept his proposal of marriage and for their love to blossom A truly beautiful story of love that sacrifices itself for the other and gives all 25 Was intrigued by the very high ratings 412 Had to see what the fuss was about Apparently a bestseller in 1910 Wellit had it s appeal for me too I love a heroine who is plain what Let Go does that really mean anyway not ugly it seems only heroes are allowed to beownright hideous and logical Jane Eyre for instance Setting Jane Champion against an artist who values physical beauty above all is interesting I liked that a lot However I found it hard to suspend my isbelief about the nurse bit Garth wasn t just blind he was an idiot And Everyone Was Too everyone was too no one had any failings or uirks or real personality Contrast that with a Rochester gruff rude at times hiding a ark secret but for good reason and it s easy to see why a book like this oesn t stand the test of time as Jane Eyre has Still I have to give Barclay credit for a very readable novel I am a little torn The love story in this book is really touching and uniue And there is so many true and beautiful thoughts but I suddenly became conscious that for the first time in my whole life I was essential to somebody I could not enter a room without realising that he was instantly aware of my presence I could not leav romance novel was apparently the best seller of the year 1910 so I thought I would test the novel was apparently the best seller of the year 1910 so I thought I would test the of its appeal What immediately struck me was that this tale of the young English gentry working through the ifficulties of their love lives in order to reach the safe haven of engagement and marriage is exactly the kind of thing that PG Wodehouse was parodying there is even an eccentric Duchess with peculiar taste in pets here so even if nobody actually reads The Rosary these Major Westhavens Unwilling Ward days it has a certain legacyIt is well enough written I certainly liked it much than 1909 s bestseller with the plot concerning a youngish woman who turnsown a proposal of marriage because she feels she is not beautiful enough for her artistic admirer thoug. First published in 1909 The Rosary tells the story of Jane Champion and Garth Dalmain The Honourable Jane is plain smart and fiercely ,
H she lies and tells him that he is too young for her She then travels around the world bitterly regretting her choice and on hearing that her young man has been struck blind by a plot evice persuades a friendly octor to allow her to nurse him while pretending to be someone else who just happens to have a similar voice to the woman he loves Well you can guess how it ends but it would probably make a ecent film either set in 1910 or updated to the present Though we might skip over the unexpected revelation two thirds of the way through that she had gained nursing experience in the Boer War Why Did This Not Come did this not come earlier and I suspect that the author is not well informed about Scottish marriage law oh arn I gave away the endingThe Rosary of the title incidentally was a very popular
