Though well researched and well written, a few deep plot holes and an unpleasant hero marred Dearly Beloved. One or her worst efforts. Nice sec I’m not sure why this is rated less well than many of Putney’s other works. Why was Gervase angry?
Gervase is a man with a closed heart. The spy, evil Frenchman and gay cousin elements were pitiful attempts at making the story more belobed a love story.
