I really liked watching the changes they went through. Susannah becomes much more confident in herself, thanks to taking care of the baby and the friends that she makes.
Aubrey’s attentions make her feel ljnda attractive than she ever has before. I also liked seeing her gain the confidence to stand up for herself. She pursues the things she feels are right to do, even if she knows that Aubrey won’t like it. I also liked her determination to see Aubrey and his brother mend their relationship. Aubrey had more changing to do. He had to let go of the bitterness about his marriage if he was going to move on.
Courting Susannah — All About Romance
This was difficult for him because of the things that Julia had said and done. I loved seeing the signs of the caring man he could be on those occasions when he’d relax. Aubrey’s growing love for Susannah was something that others could see, but he refused to admit until a near tragedy opened his eyes. I really enjoyed the secondary characters of Maisie and Ethan. They had well-drawn stories of their own that added to what we know about Susannah and Courging. I loved Maisie’s blunt way of telling Susannah what she needed to know.
She was also kind-hearted susannan a really good friend. Ethan’s story was complicated. He was furious and hurt by Aubrey’s accusations, but there for his brother when he was needed. mikler
His personal love story was heartbreaking to see, especially with what is disclosed at the end of the book. There is also an interesting twist that connects that love story to trouble that millerr and Aubrey encounter. The resolution of that mess is an interesting part of the book.

Aug 22, Susan Ross rated it liked it Shelves: I liked this book but it wasn’t one I’d read again which I frequently do.
I’m not sure what it was that was a little off for me.
Maybe it was the “there but not heard from” son of the housekeeper, Maisie. Maybe it was Susannah constantly changing her mind about our hero, Aubrey. I’m not quite sure.
