About the Author: Betty Neels

Betty Neels was born on September 15, 1910 in Devon to a family with firm roots in the civil service She said she had a blissfully happy childhood and teenage years This stood her in good stead later for the tribulations to come with the Second World War She was sent away to boarding school, and then went on to train as a nurse, gaining her SRN and SCM, that is, State Registered Nurse and State Certificate of Midwifery.In 1939 she was called up to the Territorial Army Nursing Service, which later became the Queen Alexandra Reserves, and was sent to France with the Casualty Clearing Station This comprised eight nursing sisters, including Betty, to 100 men In other circumstances, she thought that might have been quite thrilling When France was invaded in 1940, all the nursing sisters managed to escape in the charge of an army major, undertaking a lengthy and terrifying journey to Boulogne in an ambulance They were incredibly fortunate to be put on the last hospital ship to be leaving the port of Boulogne But Betty s war didn t end there, for she was posted to Scotland, and then on to Northern Ireland, where she met her Dutch husband He was a seaman aboard a minesweeper, which was bombed He survived and was sent to the south of Holland to guard the sluices However, when they had to abandon their post, they were told to escape if they could, and along with a small number of other men, he marched into Belgium They stole a ship and managed to get it across the Channel to Dover before being transferred to the Atlantic run on the convoys Sadly he became ill, and that was when he was transferred to hospital in Northern Ireland, where he met Betty They eventually married, and were blessed with a daughter They were posted to London, but were bombed out As with most of the population, they made the best of things.When the war finally ended, she and her husband were repatriated to Holland As his family had believed he had died when his ship went down, this was a very emotional homecoming The small family lived in Holland for 13 years, and Betty resumed her nursing career there When they decided to return to England, Betty continued her nursing and when she eventually retired she had reached the position of night superintendent.Betty Neels began writing almost by accident She had retired from nursing, but her inquiring mind had no intention of vegetating, and her new career was born when she heard a lady in her local library bemoaning the lack of good romance novels There was little in Betty s background to suggest that she might eventually become a much loved novelist.Her first book, Sister Peters in Amsterdam, was published in 1969, and by dint of often writing four books a year, she eventually completed 134 books She was always quite firm upon the point that the Dutch doctors who frequently appeared in her stories were not based upon her husband, but rather upon an amalgam of several of the doctors she met while nursing in Holland.To her millions of fans around the world, Betty Neels epitomized romance She was always amazed and touched that her books were so widely appreciated She never sought plaudits and remained a very private person, but it made her very happy to know that she brought such pleasure to so many readers, while herself gaining a quiet joy from spinning her stories It is perhaps a reflection of her upbringing in an earlier time that the men and women who peopled her stories have a kindliness and good manners, coupled to honesty and integrity, that is not always present in our modern world Her myriad of fans found a warmth and a reassurance of a better world in her stories, along with characters who touched the heart, which is all andthan one could ask of a romance writer She received a great deal of fan mail, and there was always a comment upon the fascinating places she visited in her stories Quite often those of her fans fortunate enough to visit Holland did use h

    4.5 stars for Hannah I enjoyed this book so much that I rank it in the Top Ten Best ever written by Betty Neels.Though the book follows the typical BN storyline, it had a slightly different feel and I found it refreshing I think Betty penned some wonderful characters that distinguishes this book from the rest.First, Hannah was great and I fell in love with her on the very first page She was smart, fun, kind, but quirky Though she is

    Yes, I m still binging on Betty Neels They are so safe and samey but in a good way Hannah is a nurse, looking after baby Paul, the son of Valentijn s niece He s newly engaged to Nerissa after years of loneliness after a failed first marriage These men just don t learn.One really has to wonder about Betty s experience of family life because her heroine s are often orphan s or have the most appalling mother s and stepfather s Hannah is af

    This book I enjoyed from start to finish, I liked the h Hannah but the H Valentijn took a few pages for me to warm up to him, I did like when Hannah told him what she thought of him when she overheard him saying not so nice words about her to his niece.The ow I did enjoy and as usual she wasn t the brightest lol and for once I would like the h to actually do something rather than just walk away when the ow causes trouble and for the h to say a f

    Sick baby as plot device not quite as low as Betty can sink, but pretty close Seemed like anytime there was a lull in the action, poor little Paul got sick At least our Betty didn t kill him off Otherwise a fairly standard British Nurse Rich Dutch Doctor story The minor characters were fairly well done, especially little Paul s parents Nerissa the requisite beautiful financee of the RDD was deliciously rotten and I wanted to smack Hannah s lazy, wh

    3.5 Star read for me. It s always so nice to read any Betty Neel s books and this one is one of my favorite storylines she does h takes care of H s family member, he is cold towards her indifferent and has this beautiful fiancee It all works out in the end though I just wish these books had epilogues Again I found quite a few typos but I m pretty sure it s a Harlequin re release thing Just a heads up

    A good love story always has a good love rival and Betty Neel s has a wonderful way I making you want to slap her This story was no acceptance, Hannah has a heart of Golden and loves Children when she becomes the nurse to care for small Paul and his mother she never thought it would change her life forever.Wonderful story telling and I just love how comfortable and cosy this story brings

    Perhaps typical BN RDD, plain but beautiful inside BN and a bitchy OW But fun to read and Valentjin redeems himself admirably and Hannah is sweet yet feisty.
