In the midst of divorce proceedings against the cruel lord she had wed a few years before, Lady Melody Bainbridge mistakes Dunstan Hays, Earl of Erroll, for a gardener, when she sees him collecting saplings for his estate

With only 222 pages, this little book, which was published 20 years ago, manages to delve successfully into a serious issue, not just skim its surface. And, although the "fall into love" part of the relationship here is not as convincing as it could be, mostly because of the heroine's behavior toward the hero at first, once they are in love it's a beautiful love story.

Many of Fairchild's Regencies have been converted to e-format. This one and another favorite of mine, LORD ENDICOTT'S APPETITE, have not been, unfortunately, and won't be read by many. Too bad, because this is one of the most realistic looks at divorce in the 1800s I've read in an HR. It wasn't as easy to get a divorce (or even an annulment) as many recently-written HRs would have you believe. Even Prinny wasn't successful in his divorce proceedings against Queen Caroline.

And that brings me to the craftsmanship of this story. It begins with our hero Duncan Hays, Earl of Erroll, stuck in a London traffic jam near the royal residence caused by the swarm of people out to view the scandalous divorce spectacle. Duncan overhears a conversation in a nearby carriage and is entranced by the voice and laughter of a woman addressed as Melody by her carriage companion. They meet again, very coincidentally, at Tunbridge Wells, where he learns that that lovely voice belongs to the scandalous Lady Bainbridge, who has the gall to want to attempt divorce proceedings against her husband.

Melody is prickly at first. Her husband has been consistently unfaithful and both verbally and physically abusive. When she meets Duncan she is covered by a veil to hide her bruises and is not inclined to want anything to do with any man. But Duncan is so kind and so noble and so difficult to ignore that she learns to trust him and to love him.

The love story is quite touching because each is willing to sacrifice for the other. Duncan is willing to give up the chance for legitimate heirs and a scandal-free life just so he can have Melody at his side. Melody knows she must give up the possibility of life with this loving man because she brings too much scandal and baggage to the relationship. Meanwhile, we have the two divorce proceedings going on. Prinny attempting to rid himself of his queen and Melody's seemingly impossible attempts to get out of her abusive relationship.

This isn't a perfect story but it has some beautiful, warm and poignant moments. There are also great secondary characters, especially Duncan's mother, and backstory for Duncan, who had been disappointed in love some years before. All in all, this is interesting, well done and with a masterly ending which finds the H and h in another London traffic jam to bring us full circle.

One minor quibble I have with this is that, although there appears to be some good research by Fairchild to deal with the divorce issue, she is somewhat shaky about titles and address. The hero is Duncan Hays, Earl of Erroll. Shouldn't he be Lord Erroll? Instead she has him addressed as Lord Hays, and his mother is the Dowager Countess of Hays. Just saying. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
