Publisher's Summary

When the beautiful Lady Isabella Scranford finds herself in the family way and her lover refuses to do the honorable thing, she knows her life is at an end. With a reputation for being a cold-hearted bitch, there will be no sympathy for her, only shame and ridicule. Finding that even her best - and only - friend refuses to be associated with her any longer, Isabella decides she cannot go on and makes a fateful decision.  

Henry Barbour is known locally as the Bear of Barcham Wood. Living alone in the vast and decaying splendor of Barcham Place, surrounded by wilderness and woodland, he inspires such tales of madness that no one locally will go near the once grand house.   

When a filthy and frightening man rescues Isabella from drowning, she begins to believe her fate has taken an even darker turn. Yet appearances can be deceptive, and an unlikely bond is created between two damaged souls who need to hide from the world.   

As Isabella comes to understand the meaning of compassion, she begins to realize the most important things in life are not at all what she expected them to be.

Absolutely Beautiful Love Story

We've all read stories that include a vicious BiTcH but in this one she becomes the herione.

But it is the tormented mind of reclusive Henry, our Hero, that is close to my heart. I have two young men in my life that are "special": one with Asperger's who prefers his own quiet room, has great difficulty making or having friends, can't concentrate enough to drive a car but has a wonderful mathematical and technological brain. The other, as Henry is referred in the book, would have been institutionalized, a vulnerable adult who cannot live without aid. Along with Henry's caretaker Jack, I saw similarities to Steinbeck's George and Lenny in Of Mice And Men.

As Isabelle shed's her despicable armor, Henry breaks through his cocoon and a beautiful love story unfolds. Totally 5 stars.
I loved The Winter Bride as well. I have a new man crush on reader Philip Battley (he's very handsome as well!)

I laughed when Henry changed the babies nappy for the first time and so proud of his work holds her up to his wife, "see" and the diaper promptly falls down her chubby little legs to the floor.
