We all have different hobbies in life but my absolute favorite thing to do is pick up a book. This blog is dedicated to all of my ramblings.
The Arrangement by Mary Balogh is a most unusual romance in historical romance. Vincent Hunt grew up with a regular life where he was cunning and playful, then he went off to war to make something of himself only to be wounded and was left permanently blind before he can begin to manage his disability he also becomes titled. Vincent has a loving family who is loving him right out of his mind they want to marry him off and “help’ him the problem is Vincent wants to find his own way and be independent. Sophia Fry on the other hand was born into the gentry but she had an oh so charming father who would rather live life on the edge and when he passed away Sophia gets passed around like an unwanted bag of potatoes. Sophia quickly learned it was better for her to stay quiet and out of everyone’s way. Quiet does not equal stupid but Sophia did loose her nerve and sense of self worth.
This is a love story where two people figure out how to be friends which grows into love. No one rescues anyone in this book – but there is this small bond that grows and the figure out how to be independent and to find their self worth. All and all it was quite lovely!
