I think I have the right one--department store heiress falls for charming, feckless man, her father "buys" the man for her, and she proceeds to spend years pining after her husband while he charmingly cheats on her. And then:Well, I was 16. It may not hold up for me
He dies and her granddaughter tells her that she wants a marriage like her grandmother's because the whole family thought it was just too sweet the way their grandfather looked at their grandmother. And Emma is thrilled because it seems that at last, he loved her after all, even though he never said it and now he is dead. OMG, how I hated that ending. All those years and all that heartache and THAT is what she got as her happy ending???
I don't think I ever got over it .
Yes, me, too, and with the free ones, I am always thinking, do I really want this book taking up memory on my Nook?What's worse are the FREE ones. I debate over should I download that book? What if it's bad? Then I kick myself because it's effing free! Who cares if it's bad. Just delete the stupid thing. I may have hundreds of books on my Nook I've never read. I'm a book hoarder.
That mental debate is often worse than the one over the $1.99 books.
