A Proper Woman has been added to your Cart. The Proper Woman (formerly the nymph of the heather) has only known hard work, grim dedication, family loyalities and duties - together with the beautifully wild scenery of the Island of Corrie. Betrayal, cruelty, loneliness, hard work and sacrifice seem like the price tag on life - until something truly dreadful turns into something inspiring and hopeful. The brothers Grimm have nothing on the magnificent Miss Beckwith, who tells this Cinderella story in a most believable way.

The Proper Woman (formerly the nymph of the heather) has only known hard work, grim dedication, family loyalities and duties - together with the beautifully wild scenery of the Island of Corrie. Betrayal, cruelty, loneliness, hard work and sacrifice seem like the price tag on life - until something truly dreadful turns into something inspiring and hopeful. The brothers Grimm have nothing on the magnificent Miss Beckwith, who tells this Cinderella story in a most believable way.
If you are not familiar with Miss Beckwith's tales of the life in the Hebrides, I would highly recommend tracking down THE HILLS IS LONELY, THE SEA FOR BREAKFAST and THE LOUD HALO. Absolutely charming armchair travel!
Invissibale
Almost 30, never been married, never been kissed. This lovely woman trudges through her life, with little to no lovely moments. She is betrayed by her brother, humiliated for 10 years by a psuedo husband (still no hugs and kisses) when she finally "takes charge" of her life, and starts a wonderful journey toward love. Too bad there isn't a sequel. I wish Ms. Beckwith's novels were not so hard to find. They're beautiful and inspiring. The review by Mamalind (a favorite reviewer) says it all.
