More About the Author

Romance readers around the world were sad to note the passing of Betty Neels in June 2001. Her career spanned thirty years, and she continued to write into her ninetieth year. To her millions of fans, Betty epitomized the romance writer, and yet she began writing almost by accident. She had retired from nursing, but her inquiring mind still sought stimulation. Her new career was born when she heard a lady in her local library bemoaning the lack of good romance novels. Betty's first book, Sister Peters in Amsterdam, was published in 1969, and she eventually completed 134 books. Her novels offer reassuring warmth that was very much a part of her own personality. She was a wonderful writer, and she will be greatly missed. Her spirit and genuine talent will live on in all her stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Betty Neels, An old fashioned Girl! 18 July 2002
By Sylvia Skinner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Yes, she wrote a book by that title, but it fits her very well. Her books are reminisicent of the novels of the 1940's and early 50's, before they becaome so explicit. Her plots are re-used and predictable, but her characters come alive, and a reader becomes attached to them. She brings them back in later books, they are all acquainted with each other, and it's very pleasant to encounter them again. I know literary critics will laugh at me, but her characters remind me of those of Jane Austen, set in a more modern time.
I haven't said anything about Fate is Remarkable...I think it is my favorite of her books, an early one, before the plots became a little thin. Sarah and Hugo fall in love, unexpectedly, and all is well.
If I have missed any of her books, I don't know which it is, have owned all of them at one time or another. May they live in print a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One I Read Again & Again 7 April 2006
By Virginia Allain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Betty Neels' plots usually involve an English nurse and a Dutch doctor's evolving romance. Their gentle predictability might make one think they will be dull, but somehow her character development teamed with loving descriptions of English and Dutch scenery creates devoted fans.
I've read hundreds of romances, but save only a few for rereading. I have almost all her books carefully stacked away for a rainy day read. The familiar plots are like comfort food and never fail to invoke a cozy feeling.
Fate is Remarkable is my very favorite of all Betty Neels' books. It is the touching story of Sarah and Hugo struggling to make their marriage of convenience work. It really is a remarkable book to take a formula romance and turn out such a satisfying love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars FATE IS REMARKABLE COLLECTOR'S EDITION BY BETTY NEELS 22 Aug 2010
By Bekah132 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
FATE IS REMARKABLE IS SEARCH OF COMPANIONSHIP AND ROOTS. "WHY are you so surprised?" Hugo asked. "We're well suited, you know......many marriages succeed very well on mutual respect and liking-and I ask no more than that of you, Sarah---at least until such a time as you might feel you have more to offer!" Sarah Dunn had worked with Hugo Van Elven for a long time, and she was astounded when he suddenly proposed to her. Both of them were still smarting from previous unhappy love affairs which was why Sarah decided to accept; surely neither of them would wish to get emotionally involved again for a very long time?

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet romance set in England and Holland 8 Feb 2014
By Fiona - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love these Marriage of Convenience stories. Sarah has been working for Hugo van Elven for around three years, just about the same length of time she has been going out with Steven. When Steven breaks up with her to marry his bosses daughter, Hugo seems to be always around, offering distraction.

His offer of marriage is a surprise to Sarah, but she accepts on the understanding that he too has been crossed in love. AFter all it wouldn't be fair if he loved her when she couldn't return his love. Oh how we deceive ourselves. Sarah may not have realised it, but her feelings for Hugo long before she realised it, were stronger than mere Doctor and Nurse professional respect.

Hugo is adorable but he makes the usual mistake of not being open. In fact they both do, holding back the vital piece of information about their feelings until the return of Hugo's lost love at a crucial moment almost derails everything.

A really sweet and emotional story.
