From the very beginning it would seem that Anna and Edward are anything but Perfectly Matched.
On their wedding day, directly after the ceremony, Edward gives Anna a list of her duties. Anna is a young woman not even eighteen, she has no idea what it means to be a wife. She never learned to cook or care for a house, but she is willing to learn and works hard to improve her skills.
Edward expects his life to run like clockwork, and he has a hard time understanding her impulsive nature, but to his credit he also has a list for himself of how he can show kindness to his new bride.
Is it possible that they could be a perfect match?
This book was filled with well researched historic places and settings, though I was a bit curious as to why Edward would have felt that he needed to order a bride considering that there didn't seem to be an extreme lack of women around. But I admired how both of them had a high view marriage and were determined to stick with their commitment.
At first their relationship is more physical than anything else, but as they get to know each their relationship grew and they found a true marriage. I loved how welcoming Edward's family was to Anna, and how the animals that Anna took in filled out the story and brought humor to the story.
