My Dear Sophy by Kimberley Truesdale

My Dear Sophy

A simple straight forward love story with not very many complications. The path of true love in this instance did not have many obstacles and it made for a simple reading pleasure.

When one is flat out working, this was an ideal light hearted read. Especially for those who like Jane Austen and its variations.

Sophie lives in Milverton, sleepy where nothing happens. Being the doctor's daughter she is the person who runs the household, looks after her two younger brothers and her father her mother having died years before. She is twenty three years old and has almost given up hope of meeting anyone who will marry her. There is the young curate who is definitely interested and interesting but is he the one.

The arrival of the friendly, outgoing Captain Connie turns everything around and from then one you know where this story is going.

Nice, neat ending! a bit too neat and a bit too smooth without any obstacles but pleasant.

A free download from Amazon.

Sounds good Mystica. Sometimes there doesn't need to be a lot of obstacles to the love match. As you say pleasant to read when you are tired.

This sounds like it would be a nice escape. I will have to look for it.
