Great plot, unusual twists and turns. I prefer hardier romance novels to the milk and water novels of my youth. Feather delivers a heroine with strength, depth, fortitude and complex character. Great plot, wonderful read!!

I read this book years ago and could not put it down. It was a true picture of how the heart loves who it loves. It is still my most favorite book.

Redonk Nutshell: Illegitimate daughter of renowned parents falls in love with her married guardian On a whim, I pulled this off the library shelf because a) I want to read more of Jane Feather and b) I liked that it was set in an earlier period of history than what I usually read. So here's what we get: Magdalen is born amid a betrayal of her mother, who was French, to her father, who is English. Because of her illegitimacy, she is sent off and raised with supporters of her father. When she turns eleven, she is shuffled to the care of Guy de Gervais, a handsome and chivalrous knight. Guy explains she is destined to marry his nephew, Edmund and she accepts it as her duty. Though spirited, Magdalen knows her responsibilities and expectations leveled upon her. As she grows up in the Gervais household she becomes even more enamored with Guy. Guy is happily married and has a huge brood of nephews and nieces under his roof, and dismisses Magdalen's attachment to him as innocent. Which, honestly, it is. But Magdalen is an old soul, and she knows in her heart she loves him. On the night before her wedding to Edmund she professes her love for Guy and tells him her arrangement with her fiance is ill advised, but Guy dismisses her. Years later, Magalden is grown up and married several years to Edmund. When a conspiracy unfolds to remove Edmund and Magdalen from the picture, Magdalen is removed to her husband's land under Guy's escort. When Edmund is attacked along the road and presumed dead, a romance between Magdalen and Guy reluctantly unfolds. When Edmund turns up over a year later, both Magdalen and Guy are forced to face their actions and emotions. Lawd, I had a time of it getting through this one. It started off intriguing enough, but from moment one the plot was one predictable cliche after another. Magdalen is a hard heroine to like, and while try not to hold that against her, I had a heck of a time sympathizing with her. She's just...meh. Bland. In fact, most of the characters are. By the halfway point of the book I found myself skimming through the pages. In fact, the last quarter I didn't really "read" at all. It was the "epic" conclusion involving a kidnapping and rescue in which only one of her men will live. And we all know which one it will be. Definitely not my favorite read of Ms. Feather's, though I haven't given up on her. Almost Innocent by Jane Feather, 432 pgs, 1990 Rating: D Romance: 2/5 Raunch: 3/5

It's the best book I've read in a long time. One that can't be beaten easily! I thought it was one of those boring books, but I was wrong! I didn't put it down until I finished it (literally).

This book showed the true meaning of love. Magdalen loved Guy with all of her heart and soul, and together they created a child. She might have been married to Edmund de Bresse but her heart belonged to Guy de Gervais.

This book was really boring and the heroine was really heartless. Her husband got killed because she wanted to marry the hero. It was soo boring that i left it incomplete. I have read alot of Jane Feather's books but this one was the worst!!!!!!!!!!!!`

I thought this book was terrible. I had read one of Jane Feather's previous books and enjoyed it but I had a difficult time staying interested in this one. Too much description...detail, etc.

This book is so Good!!!!! I thought the story line was wonderful with Magdalen and Guy and everything they face. I could really not stop turning the pages, this book was terrific. I think everyone will enjoy this book as much as I have. Jane is a great writer and I can't wait to read all of her books.

This book is probably one of the worst books Jane Feather ever wrote. I found the heroine, Madeline, incredibly annoying. She nursed her childhood crush for Guy and as soon as Edward was out of the picture she didn't waste any time in seducing him. Guy's character was also annoying and weak. He was disturbed with Madeline's advances towards him especially when there was no concrete proof of Edmund's death. He also knows about all the political shenanigans surrounding her birth and marriage yet he still has an affair with her. Some would argue that this book shows true love but I think it shows the "love" of a short-sighted, selfish girl. The book dragged on; the "evil" characters were boring; Madeline and Guy were both annoying and Ms.Feather made it seem that their love was justified because Edmund was a poor lover and therefore not The One.

At first, I didn't enjoy reading this book at all. There were too many details and it was just plain boring at first. However, once i finished reading this book, it instantly became a favorite. It wasnt your average love story that would just end in a happy ending. It had meaning and sent out a message. I definately recommend this book, but dont lose patience at first!
