Facebook page highlighted last week some of their historical writers and as the author s name popped up, I knew I do have to read this book as soon as possible.And I am so happy and glad I did it.This was a magnificent tale of acceptance and understanding while healing in the process.lord Anthony Ashcroft came back from war fields an empty shell, wounded and scarred, a shadow of his old self.Numbness having replaced his usual humorous and risking personality He sees life from behind a veil, a veil he uses to hide from the pain of losing so muchthan his perfectly functioning limbs.Lettuce Barton is an wonderful heroine as I like them, she is an oddity in herself, always awkward and insecure in polite society because her interests do not line on the classic way She chose a risking path but this is the one that fulfills her inner soul, the one she feels she was breed to be but men have a different view, why she lives a double life, and is content with it.She always seeks for the logical and scientific answer why she is unsettles when in close contact with Tony, she feels like her body and mind are betraying her.But it is her bluntness which brings solace to his wounded soul She does not avoid his scars, she looks straight to him, not repulsed by his change of appearance, she accepts who he has become.But can he repay the favor I loved how Mrs Eleanor Webster unfolded the intrigue, bringing them closer with quips and witty banters to better tear them apart until they might accept who is the other and what can be or can not be embraced in the name of Love A first read by Mrs Webster but certainly not the last I really loved this book A forthright, trailblazing heroine who struggles her way through fulfilling her dreams and living the life she wants while operating within the societal s and strictures of her era Sign Me Up A wounded hero suffering from PTSD captivated by a woman so unlike any other he s ever known, only to predictably be hurt and

voluntarily reviewed it All thoughts and opinions are my own 4.5 stars, review to follow Good book with an unusual theme Letty Barton was fascinated by the world of medicine from the time she was a child, but as a woman becoming a doctor was impossible Not one to back down from a challenge, Letty found a way Now she leads a double life society miss, with a secret identity as Dr Hatfield, and

with an unusual theme Letty Barton was fascinated by the world of medicine from the time she was a child, but as a woman becoming a doctor was impossible Not one to back down from a challenge, Letty found a way Now she leads a double life society miss, with a secret identity as Dr Hatfield, and lives in constant fear of discovery While helping a pregnant woman, Letty encounters her brother, a man she had met briefly several years earlier.I liked both Letty and Tony Letty is a misfit She has no social skills and really doesn t care, which irritates her matchmaking mother to no end Letty would much rather be reading a medical journal than attending a society event She is methodical and scientific in her thoughts and actions, reluctant to believe in anything that doesn t fit I loved her determination and how she found a way to get her medical training Her satisfaction at helping people far outweighs any thought of marriage Though ill at ease in social situations, Letty is confident in her abilities as a doctor and willing to stand up for those abilities Tony is no longer the cheerful and charming man he used to be He is scarred and haunted by his losses and the things he saw on the battlefield and suffers from nightmares and flashbacks He feels numb to everything around him.I liked the development of the relationship between Letty and Tony I liked their first meeting at a ball before the war Letty pulled her usual disappearing act, hiding out in the library and reading Tony, the object of several determined young women s pursuit, also ended up in the library He was intrigued by the young woman who didn t try to flirt and wasinterested in the article about cowpox than in him She was surprised to find a man who honestly seemed interested in what she had to say But this was only a brief encounter and their lives took different paths, though each remembered the other.Letty encounters Tony several times, both as Dr Hatfield and as herself Tony is still intrigued by Letty, who reacts to his scars far differently than anyone else Her forthright attitude stirs feelings in him that have been missing for a long time Letty is wary around Tony, and fears that he will discover her secret In an emotional scene, Letty intervenes during one of his nightmares The sparks between them flared into an unexpected passion, which then sent them both running for cover Neither feels that being together is a good idea A man in her life would end her work as a doctor, and he feels too broken to be good for anyone Things becomecomplicated when Tony discovers Letty s deception in a painful confrontation I ached for Letty as she faced the loss of the work she loves and the man she has come to love I hurt, too, for Tony whose battlefield memories got tangled up with Letty s work, causing his over the top reaction The ending was complex, with Letty s passion for her calling helping Tony come to terms with his past and his future, and his honest interest in her work giving her a feeling of validation she d never had before But there was still the issue of feeling that they couldn t be together to overcome I loved their big moment at the end when they

characterisation I liked both Letty Tony, I loved how Tony s injuries both physical mental were highlighted I always have difficulty with women masquerading as men found it hard to believe that Letty

Eleanor Webster It is the first book I have read from this author but it definitely won t be the last.Back in the day when women weren t allowed to be doctors that is exactly what Letty Barton wanted to be She wanted to help the people that couldn t afford medical care, but of course, if she ever had to look after a wealthy person she would But not as herself In order to perform as a doctor, Letty had to dress as a man She had all the training, done under the guise of her alternate self, Dr Hatfield, but had none of the qualifications because of course, she couldn t falsify her name Lord Anthony Ashcroft used to be a charming, happy flirtatious young man When Letty met him at a ball years ago, there was a definite spark between them Life got in the way of anything coming from that one meeting Since then Ashcroft has become an embittered, scarred war hero after fighting at Waterloo He lost his brother and his father, and the things he saw in battle forever haunt him.Ashcroft has the chance to meet Dr Hatfield when Elsie, his widowed sister in law, his very pregnant sister in law needs a doctor and her usual one is unavailable She is showing all the signs of pre eclampsia, although of course there wasn t really a name for it at the time The other doctor told Elsie that she mustn t drink anything except the occasional sip of water Letty was quick to tell her otherwise She left with Elsie feeling much better but didn t expect to see her again in her guise as the doctor because Ashcroft thought the other man her superior.Letty gets to meet Ashcroft again but this time as herself when she finds an injured man on the road and has to take him to the nearest house, Ashcroft s, to see to the man s injuries She knew it wouldn t be considered unreasonable for her to be able to sew a few stitches in a head wound After doing just that she gets to spend time with Elsie and pretty much from that moment Elsie decides she wants to match her brother in law with her delightful new friend.What follows is the budding romance between Letty and Ashcroft The spark of attraction is still there but Ashcroft believes himself too scarred both physically and mentally to be any good for any woman Letty can t let herself get involved either because of her double life So they can t give in to that attraction Or can they I fully enjoyed the romance of this story, and I very much looked forward to a happy ending for Letty and Ashcroft I couldn t see how it could happen, especially when of course Letty s double life is to be discovered I was very happy with how things turned out for them What I also enjoyed about the story is the subterfuge employed to allow Dr Hatfield to exist It was very cleverly done, although it s rotten that Letty couldn t be a doctor as herself I am so glad we don t live in those times now I am very happy to recommend this book Lettie Barton wants to live her life on her own terms, something not easy to do in a society where women are expected to marry and raise children She contrives to go to training and becomes a doctor Dr Hatfield No one must know that he is really a she When she responds to an emergency, she finds herself
