He is Ivo van den Werff, a Dutch doctor going home from Edinburgh and getting lost in the snow Over the next few days, they all are forced to band together during the snowstorm with no telephone or electricity, along with diminishing food supplies.
Ivo and Julia are instantly attracted to each other and once they begin to make preparations to leave Ivo asks Julia to go with This fairly early Neels is first rate all the way Nurse Julia Pennyfeather is just wonderful not a mouse, not a shrew but one of Neels most well balanced young women Dr Ivo van den Werff is, I believe, the youngest RDD rich Dutch doctor that Neels has given us He s a mere child of 30, instead of pushing 40 Oh my, and he and Julia get on quite well There is, of course, a fly in their soup of happiness Marcia Jensen Once again, a well developed character dear Marcia is a great other woman.

I would rate this 3.
5 stars Julia is one of the interesting heroines that BN has penned She is young, feisty, beautiful, quirky yet lovable She makes incredibly selfless decisions, yet is never downtrodden and gives as good as she gets The secondary characters sister and father added dimension to the story and the evil OW was quite evil She was a nasty, self centered, jealous, vindictive, two timing shrew I just loved to see her in action They don t come better than this What disappointed me though, was Ivo s logic and that caused me to deduct stars For the life of me, I could not figure out what guilted him into keeping OW around His inability to bounce OW out on her keester lessened him and almost cost him his HEA Thankfully, BN s always saves those last pages in the story to give him the opportunity to redeem himself But for me it was a day late and a dollar I don t think cd players, active cases of polio, and ladies wearing bonnets with their coats occur in the same time period, do they This is one of the nicest of Betty Neel s stories in that the hero is extremely romantic at the end and gives meaning to the title.
