I found the heroine's success as a Shakespearean scholar from an almost completely ignorant start a nonsense. As I did the idea that the male academic community, supposedly so against intelligent talented women, would applaud the suggestion that Shakespeare was a woman. Her argument that only a woman could portray female characters so well, based simply on opinion backed up by no factual research, also has a major flaw. If a man cannot portray women, then why should we suppose that a woman can portray men; Shakespeare does just a few of those rather well too.
Usually, too, Carla Kelly creates very likeable characters (even if there is a growing sameness to them as I read more of her books; sort of the same characters just in a different situation). However, the heroine in this one really began to irritate me. In my own forty year academic career, I faced many instances of male prejudice, but it didn't stop me from marrying the man I love who has always been my supportive main stay. Why would this silly girl hold out for so long against the proposals of a truly good and admirable man because she isn't sure what love is, yet seriously consider marrying a dull man she has never found appealing? Altogether, she came across as an emotional ninny.
I ended up having to skim the last part of the book. Certainly not one of Carla Kelly's better ones and not recommended.
highly amusing. The theme of this story is not the common variety romance,
but slightly different which gives the reader even more pleasure.
This series one is grateful to note, is printed in
paperback size of "old", excellent for reading in bed.
