The Scandalous Widow based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Lady Catherine has scandalized her relatives by insisting on doing something, rather than sitting prettily and enjoying her widowhood. In fact, she has opened a school and is teaching young ladies to think for themselves.The Marquess of Charlmont has agreed to investigate this school at the request of his latest flirt. It turns out that they are acquainted.Rather unbelievable romance ensues, dastardly relations try to interfere, but true love conquers all.Not a favorite, as the heroine is not very believable and both main characters are too modern in their outlooks and relationship. I'm put off when writers of historical fiction try to make their characters behave in a way that is acceptable by today's standards. I can't really recommend this one.
