    A Cinderella romance

    Having read the Oregon Trail series, I was curious to see where a more contemporary romance would go. An interesting facet brought out by Ms Stapleton's book is the effect of the cycle of abuse on a person. The consistent breakdown and denigrating of a person's personality has severe long term consequences. In this Cinderella-type romance, Jane had the family from hell, but she has never had the strength to stand up to them. When her sister, pregnant with the groom's child, effectively stole him from Jane at the altar, one would think that she would have thrown the temper tantrum she was entitled to. However, Jane swallowed it and let them take everything from her. The best man David stepped into the breach and took Jane under his wing, giving her shelter and helping her to get her life together again. However, Jane's family weren't finished with her and the results were devastating. David had the patience of Job as he kept trying to reel Jane in and show her that there was another way of handling her family. He was attracted to Jane from their first meeting, but because he was the best man, he refrained from hitting on her. However, when Alan jilted Jane at the altar, all bets were off. The book is sad in many ways, because Jane's reaction to her family's abuse is not a rare occurrence, and every time her mother and sister went on the attack, Jane was rubber-banded back into her youth. Although this book is part of a series it is nevertheless a stand-alone and has a positive ending. The book is well written and keeps the reader engrossed, even when you want to stop reading because of the nastiness of the individuals. Ultimately, this is a very enjoyable book.
