I tried not to resent his proprietary manner of speaking about it, and of Norman’s ill upkeep of the land.

I tried not to resent his proprietary manner of speaking about it, and of Norman’s ill upkeep of the land. As I was no keen horsewoman, we drove in a whiskey, a light vehicle that was deemed capable. of traversing the rough terrain, not always with a road to help it. The crops were of little real interest to me. He pointed out from the edge of the fields where he had planted oats, barley, and so on. I tried to sound interested, as I was not knowledgeable, but the fact is, my chief interest was to see the dower house, and to learn whether it was designated for anyone.

Love Bade Me Welcome - Joan Smith. Mr. Jarvis Blythe stepped forward to welcome us. He had little of the Blythe looks. His hair, whatever its original color or style, had dwindled to a white semicircle around the edge of his dome. Chapter 1. When I first saw Blythe Wyngate, I could not believe it was to be my home. Norman had not told me it was so huge, nor so very beautiful. His nose could never have been prominent, for it was a little mushroom of a thing. His body sagged to a well-developed paunch, which a jacket hanging open did not begin to conceal. Your mother-is she here, Sir Homer?

Davinia falls in love with Homer, but begins to worry that he plans to murder her for her inheritance

I do agree with reviewer Kitz that "this was by Joan Smith, so of course it is going to be good, but not her best". This was a very contemporary Gothic Romance--the language usages, choice of words, and modern way of thinking-- were all different from Ms. Smith's usual Regency Romance writings, but she still had a mystery to solve in this book.

It is true the romance was a bit weak and not obvious on the heroine's part, and the mystery wasn't totally convincing, also the mental illness left me wonder if it could be explained better, like whether it was hereditary or someone was playing trick on the mind. Nevertheless, the writing was as good as usual to make this a likable read.

Too much one person thoughts, not much intrigue and boring!! I usually enjoy her books but not this one.

After the sudden death of her beloved husband, Davinia has no place to go but to her husband's family, to the estate that he had rejected long ago along with many unhappy memories of the past. At first she is welcomed by the family. . . until it is discovered that she is to bear a child, which--if male--will replace her husband's brother as heir of the estate.
At that point, Davinia's world becomes a nightmare. Although she is attracted to her husband's younger brother Homer, she suspects that he is courting her only to gain the estate he thought was his before her unexpected pregnancy. Her suspicions are confirmed after someone pushes her down a flight of stairs and causes her to lose her unborn child. When she learns that her husband's death had been caused by poison, she wants nothing more than to get away before Homer discovers that she knows of his treachery and decides that she, too, stands in the way of his inheritance.
But the truth is not as clear-cut as Davinia envisions. It turns out that her beloved husband was not who he seemed. And Homer's character just doesn't seem consistent with a ruthless murderer, she thinks, even as she finds herself falling under his spell. Still, who else stood to gain by murdering her husband and child? Davinia knows she must get away from there before it is too late.
Although the Gothic/romantic suspense genre is not currently in vogue, I have to say that this is one of the better books I have read recently. I found myself in tears most of the way through it and could not stop reading it until the end. It's such a riveting story that it almost doesn't matter that the author apparently does not realize that in Britain at that time it was illegal for a man to marry his brother's wife (which is, incidentally, the way Henry VIII managed to annul his first marriage to his brother's widow, Catherine of Aragon). Still, Ms. Smith is not the only author to make this mistake, and the rare pleasure I got from reading this book makes me more than willing to forgive her for it.

Davinia is a naive widow who is ignorant about her husband's past. The setting takes place in England sometime during the 1800's. Only married for a short while, she is alone after her husband passes on. Taken in by her deceased husband's relatives it appears as though she will be cared for. Then she finds out she is pregnant and this causes concern for those that want her brother-in-law, Homer, to run the estate. If she bears a son the home and land will become his eventually. Homer will be on the outs and since the death of his father he has managed everything and paid the bills.

I enjoy a good gothic romance but this story had me yawning while I read it. I kept hoping it would get better. You know that something romantic will occur between Homer and Davinia but when it did it felt flat. A good gothic story will have some suspense but it was uninteresting. The puzzle about who wanted Davinia dead was explainable; there was very little mystery as to the 'whys'.

If you want to read a better gothic romance try Lost Ladies of the Windswept Moor by B. C. Warren. A book with a slowly-built love between the two main characters, some deception and a murder and those mysterious secrets; what more could you want when you read a eerie old-fashioned romance?

well it's Joan Smith, so of course it's going to be good. Not one of her best. I would recommend "Drury Lane Darling" over this any day.
