Maisie has eyes for her brother’s French friend Olivier. Because of his financial situation, Olivier doesn’t believe himself a worthy suitor for Maisie. In a desperate attempt to raise his status he makes a terrible decision that threatens any chance for him to find happiness with the woman he loves.
Maisie is a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t willing to let a mistake keep her from the object of her desire. Only forces beyond her control can do that.
Olivier is a likable enough character, but I have little respect for him because of his questionable morality. I wonder what kind of life any woman could have with a man willing to stoop so low, regardless of his motivation.
Everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes a good person does the wrong thing for the right reason. I would have liked for Olivier to work to redeem himself, and prove himself worthy of Maisie’s love. Had he done so, he could have earned my respect.
As it stands, All for Love is a short, sweet tale. It’s well written, and I enjoyed it. I’m on to another Lora Darling work entitled, Josie.
