She'd clutched her purse to her chest all the way back to their room and muttered to herself under her breath. to know what Dr. Roberts had told he. Nothing. Bess held the handbag so tightly Livvy was afraid it would break in two. "What did she give you?""Give me? Nothing. Nothing I'd ever use, anyways. Now she had Livvy's curiosity piqued.

Stephanie Mittman will bring you totears and then to laughter! Beautifully written! The Marriage Bed is warm . The Marriage Bed is a great book. But throughout it I wished I could jump right in the book and shake both Spencer and Olivia.

The Marriage Bed is a great book. They irritated me, Olivia being too nice and innocent and Spencer just being too grief ridden to care about anything but his own pain. But even with those annoyances I made allowances for them.

Set on the Williamson Farm in 1897 Wisconsin, we are introduced to Olivia and Spencer on their wedding night.

I read it on a recommendation and am please to pass the positive feedback along. The book has very funny, laugh out loud moments as well as times where your heart goes out to the characters. Others reviews said that the h was naïve and the H was selfish, both comments completely true. However, what I felt was endearing about the story was that we see the characters grow and loose these faults and become characters that the readers can cheer for. In the end, the h stands up for herself and the H actions are become altruistic. The reader suffers through the heartache of the characters but also enjoys the HEA. Great story, a must read!

The Marriage Bed is a great book. But throughout it I wished I could jump right in the book and shake both Spencer and Olivia. They irritated me, Olivia being too nice and innocent and Spencer just being too grief ridden to care about anything but his own pain. But even with those annoyances I made allowances for them. With Olivia I seen that she finally learned to care about and stick up for herself. With Spencer he redeemed himself 100%. He knew what a big mistake he made (and it was a HUGE mistake) but he stopped at nothing to get her back. I would recommend it to anyone.

Between the poor pathetic Prologue and page 19, I already hate the hero.

Did.Not.Like.This.

The hero is a pity partying schmuck; the heroine is soooo much in love and is duped by the big jerk. The hero is still in love with his dead wife and in such mourning over the loss of his whole family (wife, three kids and his mother to diphtheria which, okay, is a lot) he doesn't want anything to do with his new wife who has ALWAYS loved him. He's been withholding completion of the sex act for the past three years because he doesn't want any more kids. She's too naive to know the difference, and bears the shame of the town not only knowing of her unrequited love but her supposed infertility.

She adopts her dead sister's kids against his will. A miraculous accident wakes the hero up, but when she figures out how he's been duping her, she is DONE.

Toss in a smarmy OM and
SPOILER:
the sad, sad suicide of a secondary character and YUCK.

This is my first book by this Author and if this book is any indication, go buy the rest of her books! This is a very well written romance and tugs at your emotions at exactly the right moments.
When I'm introduced to a new author, my first question is always, which well-known author compares to this author? I'm hesitant to say Pamela Morsi and Lavyrle Spencer. Because I've known folks who liked Morsi but not Spencer & vice versa. Mittman is in a wonderful class all by herself. Her style and her way of telling a story is down-to-earth, heart-wrenching yet warm and folksy with a touch of sensuality to boot! Most of all, it's easy to read and from the first word, it draws you in and holds you until the very last page, the very last word. (I love Spencer but Mittman is not as wordy as Spencer, thank goodness!)
It took me a while to find a copy of this book and by the time I got it, it had been recommended to me several times and rated five hearts (and such) by more than one professional romance book reviewer on several websites. Therefore, I did have high expectations. I was not disappointed and I'm happy to report that all the praise was well deserved.
The first chapter had my stomach in knots. But at least I wasn't bored. I usually prefer the man to fall in love w/the woman first and spend the rest of the book making her fall in love w/him. Well, this book starts off the opposite way.
What I love about this book is how it fools you and lets you think it's about a push over woman who is content to be a doormat for a guy who is emotionally dead. After the first chapter, I was convinced it was going to be one of those Grapes of Wrath sad stories about suffering and more suffering on the woman's part. I couldn't have been more wrong.
This book was easy to read but the story is complex and Ms. Mittman handles it so wonderfully that all you can do is hang on and stop speculating about what's going to come next and just enjoy the ride.
The editorial review about the story content tells you what the book is about. But I just wanted to make sure that not only will you enjoy the story line but the tone as well. Story is great but it's only as good as the story teller. Two people can tell a story or a joke but one is obviously better at telling the story or joke. Ms. Mittman is one fine story teller. She had me clinging onto her every word and turning the pages. A sure indicator of a keeper!
