Not Quite a Husband tells the story of Dr. ryony Asquith and her former husband, Quentin Leonidas Marsden. Their romance redevelops as Leo escorts Bryony country from India to be with her dying predecessor. Along the way, they encounter complaint, strive...and cherishing. Much of what I loved about this speller came from Adolescents. Thomas' choice of a late-Victorian (1897) stage setting. This allows for freedoms that are difficult to get in historical novels. Bryony is a intern and Leo is a mathematics professor, despite both being from well-to-do households. Bryony is able to travel on her own to the Continent, the Americas, and India. Perhaps most importantly, they are able to obtain an annulment after 3 years of marriage without ruining either unique socially. The uniqueness of Adolescents. Thomas' main wacks is not solely due to her choice of years, however. She also makes their relationship with unique another special in other ways -- Bryony proposes to Leo, and she is significantly (~5 years) older than he is. Yet, the most unique bee in bonnet about this speller is the reason for their annulment and failed marriage. It's not that (view marauder) is unique in and of itself, but I cherishing that it wasn't just another Big Misunderstanding that could be resolved through a simple remark. In spite of the fact that the reason for their annulment is exposed at roughly the halfway point of the speller, Bryony and Leo (and the reader, for that matter) are genuinely uncertain about their expertness to live happily together until nearly the settle. Not all was wonderful about this speller, however. I had real stress adjusting to the exotic stage setting, and often found myself so caught up in Indian topography and affairss of state that I had lost track of the story entirely. In fact, this speller sat on my Ignite for several months before I decided to power through the slow start and get to what turned out to be a fantastic story. I would recommend this speller to all fans of historical romance, particularly those who hate seeing limpid females swoon into their hoagies' escutcheons at every intimation of instability. Though it gets off to a slow start, the story it tells is worth the wait. Category: 4.5/5 This speller contains occasional, brief sexuality scenes.
A bit superficial for me but fairly entertaining nonetheless.
Eh interesting but boring so far, I've started and stopped it 3 spaces once..
