Although eve the best, nor the most exciting of reads, A Date at the Altar did have these two standout aspects going for it:1) The pairing of a clueless virgin duke hero and a world weary widowed playwright ( GINGER!!!) eroine.
When does that ever happen? While their differences did drive each other mad in the en ( which was particularl great fun for the reader to pay witness to), Sarah and Gavin eventually discover that they are not quite differen in a lot ways.
Another memoi ’ s emotional core centered on Sarah ’ s journey from distrustful, herself against the world way of thinking, to her truly wanting to let Gavin in.
Sarah ’ s ight to ge the fears her mother instilled her at bay ultimately led her to make ad choices and putting her trust in the wrong people, ending with her closing her heart off completely for the sake of protection.
Thus when life was at its most bleak, Sarah kept on fighting and that was just incredible to read about.
Gavin, while darling, was ot the most fascinating of heroes, at least in ontrast to Sarah.
Gavin also fought off convention ( both society 's and his own) to be with Sarah, ( view spoiler) [ ultimately marrying her in spite of her status and that she wil n't bare children ( hide spoiler) ].
That, combined with the implication that he and Sarah were such a good fit helped ease whatever disparity there was between their individual characters, for he most part anyway.What ultimately didn ’ t work o well for me ha the lack of plot.
