Edward P. James desperately needs someone to help him keep his farm going, but has failure after colossal failure finding a good housekeeper. Alida marries a man only to find out he's already married. She's so undone when she finds out that she just wants to go somewhere where no one will judge her for her misfortune, where she can work and keep herself fed and clothed. James and Alida meet and arrange for a strictly business marriage, leaving loving and honoring out of the vows. The title of the book tells the rest of the story, but the way it gets there is worth the journey

He had inherited his rugged acres from his father, had always lived upon them, and the feeling had grown strong with the lapse of time that he could live nowhere else. Yet he knew that he was, in the vernacular of the region, "going down-hill. The small savings of years were slowly melting away, and the depressing feature of this truth was that he did not see how he could help himself. When a man with a nature like his "gives up," the end has come. The low, sturdy oaks that grew so abundantly along the road were types of his character-they could break, but not bend. He had little suppleness, little power to adapt himself to varied conditions of life.

I loved this book. James Holcroft's wife has died, and he can't imagine ever loving any other woman. But soon he is faced with the fact that he can not run his farm by himself - and he desperately wants to keep his farm.

At first he tries hired women, but the first one brings her whole family to freeload... and the second one is a triumph of comedic hopeful imagination wedded with self-interest bordering on insanity. This second one, Mrs. Mumsford, could truly be the once-in-a-lifetime part for the right comedy actress - I could almost envision her on screen, and dearly wished this had been produced by BBC!!!

James is ready to give up and sell his beloved farm when his friend recommends a middle-aged woman who has arrived at his poorhouse with few choices. Alida thought she was married but her "husband" already had a wife... so she is ashamed of her past and no longer trusting of men, feeling herself doomed to poverty and a very lonely, shunned future.

The two suit each other's needs and suggest an escape from their worst fears, so they make a "business arrangement" to marry, though both are very up front about their intentions and inability to love again. So they are married by a judge and arrive back at James' neglected farm the same day they meet.

What follows is a very endearing love story, as James begins to notice Alida's sweet personality and the sunny changes she makes on his farm and in his day... and Alida notices what a good, kind, gentle and generous, hardworking man James is. Unfortunately, both remember the promise made to heed the other's warning that love is not to be part of their marriage...

This is no trashy romance, for anyone expecting a "romance" of modern style. But I found it a very, very endearing, realistic portrayal of two unique, lovable characters who slowly find their hearts waking up to each other. The thoughts of each are like my thoughts - the author must have been a very insightful man, because he shows thoughts that people really think, and reactions they would really have. You feel like these are real people, gently and kindly drawn. There is also a Christian aspect to the story (I liked this) - James' faith did not survive his first wife's death, though Alida's is not lessened by her own disaster. She is as sensitive to the loss of his faith as she is to the loss of his wife, but when the villagers James has never bothered to be friendly to gossip about her, her forgiveness of those who have tried to humiliate her has a strong impact.

With another reviewer, I too was very glad little Jane, the hilariously repulsive Mrs. Mumsford's daughter, helped the story to a happy ending and found a real home.

I loved this story and read right through to the end.

I have mixed feelings about this book. It was written well over 100 years ago so the style is a bit wordy and there were many paragraphs full of internal thoughts that I ended up just skimming over but it was nice experiencing the development of the romance in a sweet, gentle unfolding rather than a quick, whirlwind of love and passion. The story really began for me about half way through when James met Alida. The first half of the book was humorous at times and was written, I believe, to show the frustration James felt in trying to find a decent woman to work for him and the desperation he felt which would make him marry for convenience. Unfortunately, I felt that it made the story less believable for me because he had met so many irritating women that he chose to employ then suddenly chose to commit himself for life to one that he had never met who could have turned out to be just as ridiculous as the women he had already encountered. I thought at first that it was because she was recommended by a friend but then I remembered that Mrs. Mumpson was also. Anyway, I still enjoyed the second half of the book and was happy to see that little Jane was given a part in the happy ending :)

I just finished re-reading this book and I am sure I will read again in the future. This is a sweet love story about a widowed middle aged farmer and a youngish lady who had the misfortune to marry a bigamist. This story tells of farmer James Holcroft's life after the death of his wife. It tells of his troubles trying to keep his farm running on his own and his realization that he must either get some help or sell his farm. He went through some trying times with the females he hired to run his household. It also tells of the sad times Alida Armstrong had fallen on. She had lost her mother and Henry Ferguson took advantage of her grief and convinced her to marry him. After living with him under the the misapprehension that they were lawfully married, Alida is shocked and horrified to find out the man she has married has a wife and child. Alida, with no other place to go, ends up in the poor house. James having been through a really rough time with his hired help, is ready to give up and sell out when a friend intervenes and tells him of Alida's plight. The story tells of their married life together and of misunderstandings that happened between them because of a lack of communication and because each had a poor opinion of themselves.

Living on a farm in the 1800's is hard. When James Holcroft loses his wife to illness, he tries to maintain his farm and home by himself. It quickly becomes clear that he needs help. After James hires a series of housekeepers with miserable results, he decides to give up and sell his farm; but a old friend convinces James to try one more time. This time James offers a marriage of convenience to Alida, a young lady who has had her own set of troubles. It is heartwarming to read about two people who unselfishly try hard to help each other.

Be prepared - although this is not a long book, it is not a quick read. As was common of books written over a 100 years ago, there are very long chapters without conversation and lots of inner thoughts and reflections by James, but I promise it will be worth your time to read this wonderful story.

This was a delightful read! An older fiction work of a man whose wife died and now he needs someone to help with the housework so he can do the fieldwork. The ones he hires either can't work or have other designs on his life. Much humor here! Then he finds a woman who probably can work in the house, but is too young to live alone with him. So they have a marriage for the sake of having a business. In the process of living in the same house and working together, he falls in love with his wife. Easy read! Some awkwardness with some of the formatting.
