Overly tall and unfashionable, Vanessa is hired to transform Lord Thruston's shy invalid sister into a healthy and confident lady of the "ton."

And Vanessa begins to change from an ugly duckling into a swan.

BEAUTY RESTS IN THE BEHOLDER'S HEART

THIS IS A LOVELY ROMANTIC CINDERELLA STYLE FAIRY TALE THAT RELATES THE OLD ADAGE THAT BEAUTY DOES REST IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY THAT IF ONE FEELS BEAUTIFUL, ONE LOOKS BEAUTIFUL. VANESSA HOLLAND IS THE COUNTRIFIED DAUGHTER OF THE VILLAGE DOCTOR-SHE IS BRIGHT, HAS AN ENGAGING PERSONALITY AND IS WELL LOVED BY HER NEIGHBORS BUT HAS NEVER KNOWN THE AFFECTIONS OF ANY MAN SAVE HER FATHER. A VERY TALL, WELL ROUNDED YOUNG WOMAN, VANESSA BELIEVES HERSELF TOO PLAIN AND TOO BIG TO WIN ANY MAN'S AFFECTIONS. HIRED BY THE EARL, LORD THURSTON, TO WORK WITH HIS SHY YOUNGER SISTER, VANESSA IS THROWN INTO ALMOST CONSTANT CONTACT WITH THE EARL=BUT HE IS MARRIED ALTHOUGH HIS WIFE IS FOREVER ANYWHERE BUT AT HIS HOME, AND WHILE FRIENDLY, HE HAS EYES, SO OF COURSE WOULD NEVER SEE ANYTHING BUT VANESSA'S UNGAINLINESS. AS MILLIE MAKES PROGRESS TOWARD BECOMING MORE ASSURED, VANESSA BEGINS RECEIVING LITTLE LOVE NOTES AND TOKENS LAUDING HER BEAUTY AND HER WONDERFUL HEIGHT AND WOMANLY APPEARANCE. HER PRIDE IN HERSELF BLOOMS AND SOON SHE IS A MOST LOVELY, ALTHOUGH STILL TALL AND WELL ROUNDED YOUNG WOMAN. THE STORY OR MILLIE'S GROWTH AND VANESSA'S AWAKENING WOULD ENSURE THE PLEASURE GRANTED BY THIS BOOK ALONE-BUT THERE IS ALSO HUMOR, MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND OH MY ALOT OF SWEET WELL DESERVED ROMANCE. I DO NOT THINK IT IS QUITE 5 STARS BUT MOST DEFINITELY IN A FULL FOUR AND MAYBE A FRACTION MORE.DEFINITELY WORTH THE READ.
