Synopsis: 

Manchester, 1850 

Isabelle Rackham knows she will not marry for love. Though arranged marriages have fallen out of  fashion, hers has been settled for some time. Alexander Osgood is handsome, well-known, and  wealthy, but he is distant and aloof, spending much of his time at his textile mill. 

Moreover, Northern England is nothing like Isabelle's home in the Lake Country, and her marriage is  far from the fairy tale she expected. Conversations with Alexander are awkward, when they happen at  all, and Isabelle struggles with loneliness. 

Sensing his wife's unhappiness, Alexander brings Isabelle to his country estate. During their time  together, the couple begins to build a friendship, opening up to each other about the details of their  lives. But when a tragic accident leaves Alexander unable to walk, their fledgling relationship is tested. 

Isabelle is determined to see to her husband's recovery, and in caring for him, she discovers within  herself an untapped well of strength and courage. In learning to rely on each other, the couple has an  opportunity to forge a love connection that they both have longed for but never dreamed could be.

Advanced Praise: 

“Anderson’s first foray into historical romance is an atypical, yet satisfying story set in Victorian  Manchester’s upper middle class. Hand this to readers looking for a book that navigates the peaks and  valleys of two strangers attempting to make a life together despite the hardships life throws at them.” -Library Journal 

“Isabelle transitions from an unaware, leisure-class woman to a more enlightened spouse and supporter  of the working class. Intimacy and romance develop between Isabelle and Alexander because of simple  gestures, like a long look or a thoughtful gift, and their conversations. Their slow, stately courting is  reader appropriate for any age or audience. Manchester also gets its due as a place of grit and incredible  production. Descriptions of bustling mills reveal their impact on the couple’s family and its fortunes.  Isabelle and Alexander is an intimate and touching romance novel that focuses on women’s lives in the  business class of industrial England.” 

-Foreword Reviews 

“Isabelle must use her quiet spunk, busy mind, and compassionate spirit to woo her husband in a  wholly new way. Anderson's debut is a lovely northern England Victorian romance about confronting  the seemingly impossible and the power of empathy. Anderson also addresses the time period’s  treatment of physical and intellectual disabilities. Most of all, she beautifully depicts love in its many  forms beyond romance, such as compassion, patience, and vulnerability; and her characters illustrate  the ways that these expressions of love carry us through even the darkest hours. Isabelle’s loving and  persevering fervor and devotion will resonate with any caregiver’s heart.”
