Delightful historical romance. Businessman Tremaine is at the Bellefonte manor to look over the prized merino sheep, when the earl’s sister, Lady Nita, catches his attention. They bond over a visit to the frozen pasture, where a newborn lamb lies not breathing. Tremaine undoes his clothing “right down to his skin and held it all open so Nita could put the wet, frigid lamb into his shirt, against his bare abdomen.” The woolly treasures are coveted by a scheming neighbour, and enter into many playful conversations.

Nita’s passion for treating injured and ailing community members with poultices, tisanes and herbs draws her beyond the dictates of polite society. The earl is unhappy that Nita risks infection in these forays, despite lives saved and suffering eased. This issue becomes a sore point with the besotted Tremaine, as he refuses to let his future countess be placed at risk. Likeable characters struggle with real concerns, and we can’t wait to see how they will come together in the end. It doesn’t hurt to be surrounded by caring family, who may grumble, but see with open eyes and an open heart.

Interesting view of treatment of illnesses in regency period. A lady healer who cares for the poor. Characters who change. All good.

“I’m afraid when I wake up tomorrow, I’ll find that I dreamed you,” she said. “You never visited Belle Maison, or if you did, you rode on your way, having bargained Nicholas’s sheep away from him. I’m nobody’s fiancée, I’ll be nobody’s wife. I’m plain, dependable Lady Nita, and always will be.” … Nita had lost the courage to hope, and how well Tremaine knew that poverty. Life became a matter of tackling challenges, of focusing always ahead, never behind. / And never inward. (p. 298-299)
