Everything and the moon

Victoria was waiting for someone and he was late, so she called his name "Robert" and a man appeared but it was not the Robert she was waiting for. Robert was in his father's land and he found a girl that was really beautiful and when she called he stepped out from his hiding place. Victoria was shocked that a handsome man stepped out instead of a boy and this man introduced himself as the son of an earl. She liked him and there was something that made her heart feel something. Robert decided that he has fallen in love and they spent most of their time together. Since she was new to the place, he showed her around and explored places together. It was such good time and two months down the road Robert wanted to be more intimate and decided to marry her. 

Robert told Victoria that he will inform his father before visiting Victoria's father (the vicar of the town) to ask for permission. Robert's father, the earl of Macclesfield did not approve of his decision and said to disown him and leave him with nothing if he were to marry Victoria. Robert did not care for his father's money and told Victoria that they will elope. Victoria's father kept telling her that Robert was lying and would never marry someone like her. Both fathers were not in favor of the relationship hence eloping was the only way. Robert planned everything well and they were to meet in the middle of the night at the road down Victoria's house. Victoria was sneaking out of the house but she hit something and it landed on the floor which woken her father up. Her father was furious and could see she was trying to run and he tied her up in her bedroom along with her sister Ellie. Robert waited an hour but she did not show up so he went to her house and looked into her window where he found Victoria sleeping which made him furious and also proved his father's words that she only wanted him for the money were true and so he went to London. 

The next day Victoria was untied and when she had the chance, she went out her window and ran to Robert's place but only to find that he had left for London. The earl told her that Robert never wanted to marry her in the first place. Victoria was heart broken and the earl suggested that she should leave the district so that no one would learn of her affair with Robert. She left and for seven years she has been a governess. Now she was at a home taking care of a young boy and the mother has a terrible character but she had no choice. Lady Hollingwood was going to have some guest over for a few days and told Victoria to act properly and not be seen too much in the house. Victoria was chasing after Neville and found that he was in the hedgerow maze but in the end she was lost and left alone there. For hours she just sat on the ground and hope for someone to discover her and suddenly she heard voices of a couple. They were getting closer and it was an awkward situation which in the end she was found. To her surprise, the couple was Robert and another lady who was someone's wife.

Everything and the Moon  by Julia Quinn about a love at first sight that came into trouble and parted ways. Many years down the road the couple never thought that they would meet again and they both were furious with each other. This book is the first book of the Lyndon sisters which I did not realize and I purchase the second book and read it first. So I have purchased this book to read about Eleanor's elder sister and it was an okay book because I loved Eleanor's story more. This book plot's was not the type where you know what was coming and I liked that but it wasn't as funny as Brighter than the sun. Still this book was well written with good plots and of course an ending that I wanted.  In the future I might just pick it back up and read all the parts that I love but not really the whole book. Some plots were really exciting and those were my favorite. Overall it was a book that worth my money and I'm glad I read it.
