Mr. Robert Wilkins never met his great-aunt, and, yet, after his time as a Captain, Robert finds himself as the sole heir of her estate, Cattersley. Next door to Cattersley is a cottage where 19yo Miss Abigail Rutherford and her grandmother live. Abigail has long suffered because of her speech impediment, leading her grandmother to limit her freedoms for her own good. Does Robert’s new battlefield include saving a damsel in distress?

This is one of those stories that just makes you breathe a deep sigh of contentment when it ends. The whole time, readers hope for the happily ever after while suffering with our clever, but cautious, heroine. By the time everything works out, readers are ready to cheer for our dashing hero and taunt the loathsome antagonist. Robert and Abigail’s story is a cute read, and I enjoyed watching the friendship that grows between Abigail and her neighbors as much as, if not more than, the romance aspect -- everyone needs friends like the Wilkinses.
