Summary

Esmeralda Jones was a very nice girl. It seemed to Esmeralda that she was also invisible to the opposite sex. Perhaps the real reason for this was the impaired foot she had struggled with since childhood.

When the brilliant surgeon Thimo Bamstra offered to cure her, Esmeralda was over the moon. Thimo also managed to mend her broken heart. Esmeralda had never imagined marriage as part of her future, but now she could dream of little else.

Love is blind?

A thoroughly satisfying story. The characters are believable, and I love Betty Neels way of making one feel happy, by caring for animals she introduces along the way, cats dogs donkeys and horses. They are rescued along with girl, she describes the food they eat, and the roads travelled are real. Nursing skills and hospital routine quickly involve you making you feel as tired and as hungry as those nurses we read about. Happy ever after? Of course! I have all Betty Neels books, I wish more were put onto Audible, because I like to listen to the story before I go to sleep. Audible switches it off for you, at 82, I still love a story read to me, with a happy ending!
