WOMAN BUT SHE S A WOMAN but she s a woman modern woman can appreciate intelligent with scientific and artistic hobbies a keen sense of right and wrong and a constant chafing against the double standards of the world she s born into But when she marries Roger all of her independent spirit and refusal to take crap seemed to melt away into a generic puddle of goodness and sweetness After a few chapters in which the story spins its wheels with episodes of Jane trying to establish dominance over her household staff and Roger meeting with Maud yet again this time to try to get back the explicit When the Crowd Didnt Roar letters he wrote her the plot takes a sharp turn to theeft when it turns out Maud is dying All of the sudden her characterization shifts from a storm of every conniving other woman stereotype in Regency romance to a poor pitiful invalid who has been cruelly treated by her husband who will just Thunderstruck (Thunder Mountain Brotherhood, let her and her unborn child die rather than allow anyone in his employ to help her Jane with her new goodness and sweetness upgrade decides it is her duty to care for Maud Without any apparent internal conflict or struggle against baser emotions Jane devotes most of her free time to nursing the dying woman who is pregnant with her husband s child all while the half delirious woman spews hurtful stuff in her direction Through it all Jane comes to feel deeply sorry for Maud and never says another negative word about the woman When Maud dies Jane bullies her family members into attending her funeral yes I know Regency women didn t attend funerals but the author doesn t browbeats theocal clergy into treating Maud Partner Programming - Installation like a perfectly respectable woman and adopts her daughter as her own defying all kind of scandals in the process Where is Roger while Jane is ascending to sainthood He seems to take aot of vague business trips and then he is busy investigating who is threatening them by killing random sheep Gee I don t know could it be Maud s cousin the servant who has been consistently described in creepy ways throughout the story who has already delivered Maud s compromising Essence - A Clean Slate letters to both Jane and Roger who has been unbelievable forward and disrespectful to both of them and yet still has a job because reasons Somehow this is a pressing mystery that must consume all of Roger s page time until almost the end of the book Honestly Roger does veryittle in this book besides meet with Maud angst about how Jane will be upset if she finds out he met with Maud brood about his approaching fatherhood and show up in Jane s room naked under a robe I Control Program - Discovery lost count of how many times that exact phrase was used to initiate sexytimes When he wasn t being an unfaithful deceitful idiot he was about as interesting as slightly burnt toast After having attempted and then hastily resolved sometimes told in a summary paragraph four conflicts that could have been the focus of the book at the bitter end the author decides that the real obstacle keeping Jane and Roger apart is Captain Stephen Sir Giles son who Maud previously flung her charms at and who has apparently always had a thing for Jane Stephen is in fact a better match for Jane in every single way which both Jane and Roger mentally acknowledge But after a super awkward public conversation in which Rogeraughs at a DecemberDecember romance blossoming between minor characters and claims he has been in My Sisters Brainwash - Rinse love dozens of times and in which Jane shoves his many affairs and indiscretions in his face claims all he knows about isust and that if his gross and disgusting My Sisters Brainwash - Repeat letters to Maud areove she wants none of it Roger has an epiphany that maybe he is not a fabulous husband shows up naked in a robe in Jane s room tells her he Uniform Daze loves her and that is the happy ending A great author could have taken all those plot points and turned it into a complex bittersweet tapestry of human relationships with the theme that society s expectations cannot truly be overcome and all the hapless mortal can do is try to find contentment It wouldn t be a romance at all ateast not in the modern meaning of the word and it would be at Soft Bots - Wind Up least three timesonger It still wouldn t be something I would enjoy reading but I would respect its existence As it is though there s nothing to respect and nothing to enjoy Just an unfocused stilted tale of a good woman forced into a marriage to a bland feckless cad Read this years ago but still remembered my only reaction was seriously Regency.
