Edward Marsh, Earl of Raymore, is a connoisseur of beauty, whether it be music or art or women. When he inherits two wards, however, and decides to marry them off as soon as possible during a London Season, he finds one of them virtually unmarriageable. Rosalind Dacey has none of the delicate, blond beauty of her cousin, and a pronounced limp resulting from a childhood riding accident has robbed her of grace and self-assurance. She resents what she sees as Edward's ruthless, high-handed tyranny, and he is infuriated by her outspoken stubbornness. Their volatile quarrels soon lead to passion of a different sort, however. And Rosalind possesses talent as a pianist that draws Edward secretly and against his will to listen, enthralled, to her daily practices in his music room.

#LitsyTeaSwap

I feel so special receiving a letter and tea in the mail today! ☺️ I love peppermint tea, it‘s great to drink at work for a calming effect.

Thanks a bunch @Bookwormjillk

Bookwormjillk I‘m glad it made it! 2w
Nutmegnc @Bookwormjillk Mine did too, but it was beat up and open! Guess they really wanted some tea! 🤣Luckily, someone tucked the flap back down so I got them all!! 2w
CrowCAH @Bookwormjillk yes, safe and sound! ☺️ 2w
CrowCAH @Nutmegnc oh no! You still got ‘em. 2w
Bookwormjillk @Nutmegnc I was worried about that! My tea bag‘s seemed really puffy for some reason! 2w

1. Many of my recent photos are for Litsy! However, this is a “regular” photo I took at a local park a couple weeks ago.
2. Short answer: I found a #littlefreelibrary in an unexpected place. Long answer in comments.
3. I‘m grateful that my friend has returned from visiting her in-laws, and now we can start planning things to do on weekdays.

Susanita One day last week I had a setback in my recovery. A couple days after that I had a slightly discouraging post-op visit with the surgeon. I spent the afternoon moping about that before finally pulling myself together so I could enjoy the weekend, which I did. Yesterday at PT I had a good talk with my therapist, and he told me I‘m right on track with my recovery and not to be discouraged if sometimes the progress isn‘t always linear. ⬇️ 6mo
Susanita On my way home from PT I stopped at the nearby recreation center to check out their senior programs. That‘s when I discovered the LFL! Also, the woman I spoke to couldn‘t believe I‘m old enough to take advantage of the programs. I told her she was very kind and assured her that I am in fact over 50. 😀 6mo
Crazeedi @Susanita it can be difficult but your therapist is right, I'm glad you received encouragement. And that you found a LFL! It was a sign!! And a lift to the heart that she thought you weren't old enough 🥰 6mo
Eggs Thanks for playing ❤️👍🏼📚 6mo

⭐⭐ Meh

Not her best. The hero was too hard to like. The herione was likable. I think the courting with the other guy took up too much of the book.
