It was a story about a marriage of a 25 year old woman, who was apparently not so attractive to to a Sir Paul of England, a surgeon. And although you knew that they cared for one another, neither of them seemed to be aware of this.
Emma, after a tragic loss of her mother, finds herself in financial difficulties. Her mother's doctor, Sir Paul Wyatt comes to call and they find themselves enjoying one another's company. They carry out the marriage of convenience and Emma seems to find herself alone a lot and with some competition for the attentions of her husband.
The book is a fast and fun read and taught me some British - English terms that I hadn't heard before, but could easily figure the meaning to from the sentence context.
I enjoyed it.
