Summary from Goodreads:

Manchester, 1850

Isabelle Rackham knows she will not marry for love. Though arranged marriages have fallen out of fashion, hers has been settled for some time. Alexander Osgood is handsome, well-known, and wealthy, but he is distant and aloof, spending much of his time at his textile mill.

Moreover, Northern England is nothing like Isabelle's home in the Lake Country, and her marriage is far from the fairy tale she expected. Conversations with Alexander are awkward, when they happen at all, and Isabelle struggles with loneliness.

Sensing his wife's unhappiness, Alexander brings Isabelle to his country estate. During their time together, the couple begins to build a friendship, opening up to each other about the details of their lives. But when a tragic accident leaves Alexander unable to walk, their fledgling relationship is tested.

Isabelle is determined to see to her husband's recovery, and in caring for him, she discovers within herself an untapped well of strength and courage. In learning to rely on each other, the couple has an opportunity to forge a love connection that they both have longed for but never dreamed could be.

I really feel in love with this beautiful story. Its a heart warming tale of resilience and passion.

Isabelle is a strong character, written with such warmth and a good head on her shoulders. Alexander is proud, almost too proud, but he really does have the best of intentions. The way Rebecca Anderson plays the characters off of each other, creates tension and makes you want to read more to figure out if they will working things out. It's really done well.

This was another well written historical romance and another author on my watch list.
