Faced with the ultimatum of finding her own husband or being forced to marry Mr. Matthew Swift, Daisy Bowman stopped reading her book to take a walk down by the wishing well. The wishing well had served her ‘wallflower’ friends well, each of them were now married to a man they each loved. If only that same wish could come true for her too. Matthew Swift had watched Daisy and her family together for ten years now, he knew how her father treated her, he also knew he had no rights to her. His past prevented him from anything more than his overwhelming desire to see her and be around her. Daisy had been in England for two years now, she never realized how much someone could change is such a short amount of time. Mr. Swift was at one time a bag of bones and just like her father, but now he was different. Daisy didn’t want to like him for any reason, that would make her father happy.
Another great Wallflower book from Lisa Kleypas. Daisy Bowman was a very complicated character, she loves to read her novels and she is shy but at the same time, she has such spunk and a strong will. Despite her fathers cruel treatment of her and her sister, they both are so self assured. Another strong female character. Matthews secret is well hidden till the right time, I had a few guesses, but the end result was better. The return of all the girls and their men to Stony Cross Manor was fun, to see the difference in them after marriage. Actually enjoyed seeing Lillians anger about Matthew and how everyone seemed to like him but her, hormones and her personality made for some good sparks.
