Desperate Bride by A.S. Fenichel
This is a romantic and dramatic story. Tom is sweet, charming, captivating and vulnerable. Dory is oblivious, determined and naive. They marry to save her from being sold to pay her father's debts, but Tom has been in love with Dory for years. All she wants is her music. They start the marriage off with hope, but it soon turns bad. Inside and outside influences cause strife. It's an intriguing storyline with endearing characters.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
