When two hardheaded people fall in love, it's going to a uphill battle for neither of them are going to give a inch. The Bishop's Daughter has Susan Carroll's trademark humor and fun farce that grabs you. When Harry comes home from Waterloo, he's shocked and amused to learn he’s being pronounced dead. He stumbles upon his own eulogy along with the revel of a very naked statue of himself. Laughing himself sick and surprising the love of his life who thought she would never see him again. Kate is shocked that she faints, kisses him silly then boxes his ears thinking Hellfire Harry was up to his old tricks. It takes helping hands from Kate's grandma and mother to get this couple finally together. I had some trouble getting into this book, with some inconsistence toward the characters some misunderstandings that bordered around funny, annoying and overused, the worse was our heroine Kate's narrow mindedness toward Harry. Kate raised by a bishop and her gentle mother. Kate has alot of pride that makes her feel like she has to set a example. Even when Harry ask her to marry her time and again, she still won't bend even though she loves him and thinks the worse of him even when it's not his fault and if only she ask. Kate isn't bad, just prideful; she does see forest for the trees when Harry and his good nature tend not to. She balances him out and brings him down to earth. Harry has a heart of gold, and while a tad flighty. He's able to truly see people with his wit and fun nature; she brings out the best in Kate even when she doesn't expect it. I really loved Harry as he goes through hoops trying to prove what a change man he is to Kate, but staying true to himself. He asks Kate to marry him about ever day, and turning his home around. Harry is always painted in a bad light and he’s nowhere near as bad as portrayed and Kate never bends enough to see this without putting her foot in her mouth. Glad she did unbend enough at the “very” end to give both herself and Harry a chance at happiness. Still a fun little read with some great humor and love winning over the most hard-headness.
