Sor Dominic van Wijkelen Certainly he admired her nursing skills He confidently asked her to take on his private cases which took Abigail from London to Holland then S I love Betty Neels and her writings and I'm deeply thankful for each book and novella she got published I cannot deny however that she held a disdain for Americans; whether it stems from a simple prejudice or from a bad personal experience I have no way of knowing Most often in her books Americans appear as fat rich men who whisk the Veronica out of the picture to leave the Hh to their HEAThis book is different as it features an American couple that the heroine actually likes Abigail Trent has begun to work for an agency after her mother's death She has no one in the world except Bollinger the FFR for whom she feels a great affection and to whom she owes back wages during her mother's illnessMr and Mrs Goldberg are living in Amsterdam he is some sort of diplomat and a female friend of theirs becomes ill Mrs Goldberg engages Abigail to care for said friend and of course meets the consultant and our RDD Professor Dominic van Wijkelen She doesn't like him because he is terse and arrogant and always appears irritatedAfter her job with the Goldbergs has ended Dominic hires her to nurse a friend of his Professor de Wit A charming Elderly and scholarly gentleman And after that for another old friend Mrs Macklin You get the picture – Dominic does not want Abigail to go back to EnglandHe kisses her a few times He even tells her that she has restored his faith in women Dominic had been married as a very young man to a Faithless First WifeThe problem is that Dominic also forget to pay Abigail She does make her way back to England after Mrs Macklin recovers Then Dominic calls Abigail to accompany him from Spain where his young niece has become ill after swallowing some pesetas While they are talking on the phone Dominic realizes he hasn't paid her He makes arrangements for her to get money from a bank there in LondonAfter they get Nina back to Holland and Dominic surgically removes the coins Abigail stays at his home and nurses Nina It's obvious that Dominic has fallen in love with Abigail and obviously she reciprocates After Nina recovers and goes back home with her father Abigail helps out at the hospital After some snogging one night Dominic says they have to talk but that he will be away for a couple of days Abigail is on cloud nineDominic gets back early and come straight to the hospital When he walks in Abigail is talking to Henk the registrar about his latest girlfriend but Dominic thanks they are talking about him and is infuriated He thinks that Abigail has played him false and that he is too old for her He tells her she is no longer needed at the hospital and she leaves almost immediatelyWell guess what He has forgotten to pay her again So now she's penniless She goes off to a tiny village in Friesland to a friend of Mrs Macklin's and ends up working in the village shop Which is where Dominic finds her eventually up on a ladder dusting bottles of pickles He grovels sufficiently declares himself and proposes and of course Abigail accepts He says they will be married in the church in the BegijnhofI like this one for 2 reasons 1 Abigail is feisty and has backbone 2 In spite of his misogyny Dominic can't help falling in love with her And he does try to fight it but it was over the first time they met For me that warrants forgiveness for his thoughtlessness in other areas like forgetting to pay her Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed

Betty Neels æ 1 SUMMARY

Pain But all he seemed to feel for her was intense dislike Did Dominic not trust women Was she too plain Whatever the reason there was little Abigail could do about it 5 Stars When her mother had become deathly ill Abigail left her nursing position to care for her For several months they lived on her mother's little pension A week after her mother's death Abigail finds herself at an agency looking for work and with luck there's a live in position available for a few weeks in Amsterdam Abby did her careful calculations and she just had enough left of her savings to cover her fare and if she's careful with her money she had enough to send back to London to the elderly gentleman Bollinger who had been their gardener and helper for many years The woman she is to take care of is a wealthy American staying with friends and she had a stomach ailment that may reuire surgery Dominic is a very prominent surgeon specializing in all things gastric While he is remarkably good looking he is also very abrupt and often rude From the moment they met Abby was certain that the Professor disliked her tremendously She bumps into him at the post office where she is dismayed to learn that in Holland you cannot send money by post He offers to post it for her when he goes to London only when he gets there he delivers it in person Abby is surprised to find that the Professor has brought Bollinger back to Amsterdam with him to work as his own gardener And when her position ends the Professor finds her another temporary assignment He does this again and again Abby's not sure why he helps her as he continues to dislike her but from time to time she sees the man he hides behind his cool mask She realizes that something has happened to him to make him so bitter and she falls in love with the man she sees he can still be This is so far my favourite love story by Betty Neels From the first paragraph I was taken up with Abby's sad situation Not once complaining she was determined to face each day and make a life for herself and Bollinger Dominic is a kind hearted man who was badly hurt and vowed to devote his life only to his career Abby's selfless generosity shakes him Is she for real or a great actress trying to charm herself into his life By the time he realizes she is for real he nearly loses her From tears to laughter and outrage and tears and then pride in Abby's resolve my heart was involved from the very first pages in only the way Betty Neels can do I'll not soon forget this love story
