Overview

A Girl Named Rose by Betty Neels

Through pure chance, Rose met Sybren Werdmer ter Sane, one of the most eminent surgeons in Holland. Their accidental encounter led to a job for Rose, nursing Sybren's godson. She loved everything about her new life—including Sybren! But surely such an important man wouldn't have time to take an interest in her. Yet what Rose didn't realize was that she had the gift of love, and it touched everyone around her—even hard-hearted surgeons.

Another Perfect Romance from Betty Neels - 4 1/2 STARS Briefly, part of this is from another review, but will explain my bias a little. [Ok, before I go into my review, I feel I have to be 100% honest with you. I am a huge - make that HUGE Betty Neels fan. I discovered her when I was 10 or 11 years old. Over the years, I have collected every Betty Neels novel ever in print. Even special ordering them all the way from England because I was having difficulty finding them over here in the States.] OVERALL: 4 1/2 STARS Story/Plot: 5 - Having read any number of Betty Neels books, sometimes I remember others more clearly than others. There are times I go looking for a specific book and cannot find it because although I remember the book, I don't remember the title. I find this deeply frustrating especially when I have so many books I have to go through just to find one specific book. This being said, I want to help others like me out there, who are fans of Betty Neels or who are looking for a specific title, but feel helpless lost in the sea of her amazing amount of books. So, I am going to post a brief spoiler at the beginning of her books here in this section in the hopes I can help you find that one book you must read again. SPOILER COMMENT: In this delightful romance, our heroine, Rose Comely is vacationing in Holland with a group of nurses from her hospital. She and her beautiful friend are caught in a sudden storm and seek shelter in the house of prominent Dutch surgeon Sybren Werdmer ter Sane. It also bears mentioning this book includes characters Duert and Christina from Not Once but Twice and Rose and Sybren's are mentioned again in The Doubtful Marriage. Of course, much more happens, but I don't want to spoil it too much for you. Those of ya'll that are Betty Neels fans know the general premise is a rich handsome doctor falls for a nurse (sometimes she is not beautiful, she might be under appreciated or from a home of privilege but has recently fallen on hard times). Those of you who are not Betty Neels fans, I highly recommend her works especially if you like Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer. Her romances are usually light, sweet and quick reads (usually no more than 9 chapters). Highly enjoyable any volume you pick up. Re-read Value: 5 - I am always re-reading Betty Neels. Continue Series: - Not really applicable, but I will admit once you read one Betty Neels, you kinda find yourself wanting to read others even if they are similar. Although this is not part of a series, as mentioned above, other characters from other books touch upon this one. Characters: 5 - I never meet a Betty Neels hero or heroine I do not like to be honest. I did feel a little that Sybren rushed things a little at the end, but at the same times, I found in most Betty Neels novels the hero's feelings are not pressing until Chapters 8 or 9. Cover: 3 - 50/50. To be honest, if you didn't know who Betty Neels was when you picked up this cover, you might not know it was a romance from the look of it. But prior to her passing and when she did pass, there were a number of her books that were reissued with these more artsy covers. I also have the original cover this was released in paperback, which does say romance. Genre Fulfillment: 5 - Romance, check. Personal Involvement: 4 - I love all Betty Neels. Although this wasn't a personal favorite, I still highly enjoyed it and love re-reading it when I get in the mood.
