I learned so much about farming tobacco so all was not lost.but it was too slow for my taste. #FREE EBOOK Û The Willing Heart õ Marisa And Her Younger Brother Tony Were Alone In The World, And Life Was Not Too Easy It Seemed The Last Straw When Tony Got Into Serious Trouble When Cesare Gianelli Suddenly Came On The Scene And Offered His Help, Marisa Was Thankful To Accept It There Was One Condition Cesare Wanted Her To Marry Him Where Did She Go From There, Though For Although She Rapidly Fell In Love With Her New Husband He Made It Clear That All He Wanted Was A Competent Housekeeper Could She Ever Expect To Find Happiness With Him Very different form the usual Helen Bianchin books, maybe because it s one of her early ones I kinda liked it because I liked the heroine a lot She was shy young girl, who was trying her best to make ends meet and take care of her irresponsible younger brother Unlike some of Miss Bianchin heroines who are combative and aggressive, this one is sweet and has a willing heart as the title indicates.The H marries her to help her out and because he needs a housekeeper And unlike her newer books, though he is wealthy, he is a hard working farmer The h also is not the usual wealthy idle wife of late She works hard at being the housekeeper for her farmer husband The H is quite decent to her, if a bit overbearing He gives her a chance to get used to him.The romance aspect is a bit slow but sweet. What can I say..this is not the best of Helen Bianchin..Unlike Purchased by the Billionaire that i have to read several times because i really really love the story.. This is a dealbreaker for me 1975 story set in the Dimbulah tobacco farm region.Oddly fascinating details of life on a tobacco farm during the 1970s, it s a very slow moving story Our heroine Marisa was most annoying She spoilt her brother and he was a useless bum I felt like slapping both of them Our hero Cesare Che sa re not say sar as I had thought swooped in to the rescue, offering her an initial marriage of convenience in which he d pay for her brother s university education and she had to play housekeeper at his tobacco farm He s rich And he made sure she understood the marriage will be real, he s a Catholic and did not believe in divorce, but will give her time before he ahem consummated the marriage.Life on the farm was toughEveryone was so busy from sun up to sun down Cesare sure was smart to marry a woman to run his house, no wonder he kept losing his housekeepers He should have given verbal or obvious compliments and praises to Marisa for a secretary she sure rose to the occasion beautifully Cooking all the meals for than ten, and cleaning up all by herself was outstanding Backbreaking too Not that the men had it easy, but would it kill Cesare to help her wipe the dishes or something When they had the house to themselves again after Tony went back to school, Cesare deemed Marisa ready for him, and he made her his She was still terribly shy but by then she loved Cesare I was relieved for Marisa when it s holiday time But in Sydney she met the catty Francesca, who had set her sights on Cesare Too bad Thankfully Cesare was smart enough to whisk her off to Green Island, leaving Sydney early.Then came the tragedy of Cesare losing his parents in a traffic accident During his absence, Marisa found out she s pregnant She fairly glowed during pregnancy But sadly things did not turn out well, she fell and they lost their baby girl at five months of pregnancy Heartbreaking.Full of guilt, Marisa just wanted to be alone and escape from everyone s pity sympathy Cesare got impatient with her morose moping and told her off She snapped back childishly, and Cesare gave her the cold shoulder, going so far as to sleep in another room.Marisa felt so hopeless and seriously depressed She knew Cesare did not love her, she was just a convenient housekeeper to himso one afternoon she packed a suitcase and took a train from Mareeba to CairnsBut Cesare was there waiting when Marisa disembarked He was furious and demanded an explanation for her desertion Love confessions from both sides Cesare fell in love with Marisa on the roadside when her tyre went flat and she was so angry when he offered his help I thought Cesare did betray signs he loved her, but Marisa was a complete innocent when it came to men, so she did not read the signs at all, or correctly.It could be frustrating but when Cesare was all passionate and tender towards Marisa it was so sweetSee this as a slow burn romance, and the pace is quite enjoyable watching Marisa fall in love.I suspect this story was endorsed by a tobacco company haha The way Cesare was always puffing away like a chimney And when he kissed her during right after smoking Eeewww ashtray mouth
