  • Rich girl Poor boy story The story was nicely written but not exactly romantic The author s in depth characterization of the protagonists as well as the secondary characters was both plausible and fascinating The heroine is a poor little rich girl, easily manipulated by her mother especially, as well as her circle of family and friends, to do what s expected of her The hero, a boy from the wrong tracks who disdains these upper class snobs but falls like a house of cards when meeting the heroine, [...]

  • Available on Open Library.This was pretty good The heroine was a bit of a bitch, but the Hero could take it They met when the heroine was 18 and Hero 25 She was already engaged to a man she loved Hero at the time was unemployed, so I can understand her misgivings, despite there being a strong attraction between them Also since she was just 18, it s entirely possible that what she was feeling was merely an infatuation So she goes ahead and marries her fianc.She gets widowed 5 years later and the [...]
