Summary

When Matilda's father retires through ill health, the family's new life in Much Winterlow is forced into reduced circumstances.

To make ends meet, Matilda applies to be Dr. Henry Lovell's receptionist. She does her best to ignore the strong attraction she feels for him - dreaming of white weddings and a happy marriage is not for her, and, after all, Henry is engaged to Lucilla. But Henry won't leave the village despite Lucilla's wish to live in London, and as he gets to know Matilda he becomes more intrigued by her.

Happy Ever After

I loved this new reader, her voice is gentle, like you imagine Matilda's voice to be. The story was believable, and had the right balance of happy as well as unhappy things happen.
I love the tangled plot Betty Neel's weaves in her books, and the unhurried way she brings her story to it happy ending, just right for a book at bed time.
I love these morally clean little books, and wish all of Betty Neel's books could be made Audible, since I go to sleep listening to the story, setting the automatic switch off, that makes sure I never lose my place.
