Imogen Duncan, a plain, spectacle-wearing older sister, was passed over by suitors during her London season eight years earlier. An aging spinster at 26, all Imogen Duncan sees ahead of her is a life of servitude to her overbearing mother.

I am not sure if the author meant to do this, but the play on words in the title is great. She believes her life is preordained to care for her parents as they age. There is much to like about this book.
Imogen and Caleb run into each other at a London ball. I appreciated Britton took the main characters away from the balls and rigid formality of the London Season, and instead has the second part of the novel taking place in a less formal, more intimate setting.

Never mind that Imogen also deserves her own happily ever after. Imogen has no designs to marry, after seeing what he older sister has gone through in her own marriage.

Both have helped each other with their troubles, but will Caleb realize the love he has for Imogen before she walks away forever? Imogen is a lovely character but she is a bit mousy when it comes to her mother. Assassin's Creed was my very first voice gig.
