    About "Betty Neels"

      • Betty Neels

        Betty Neels was born on September 15, 1910 in Devon to a family with firm roots in the civil service She said she had a blissfully happy childhood and teenage years This stood her in good stead later for the tribulations to come with the Second World War She was sent away to boarding school, and then went on to train as a nurse, gaining her SRN and SCM, that is, State Registered Nurse and State Certificate of Midwifery.In 1939 she was called up to the Territorial Army Nursing Service, which later became the Queen Alexandra Reserves, and was sent to France with the Casualty Clearing Station This comprised eight nursing sisters, including Betty, to 100 men In other circumstances, she thought that might have been quite thrilling When France was invaded in 1940, all the nursing sisters managed to escape in the charge of an army major, undertaking a lengthy and terrifying journey to Boulogne in an ambulance They were incredibly fortunate to be put on the last hospital ship to be leaving the port of Boulogne But Betty s war didn t end there, for she was posted to Scotland, and then on to Northern Ireland, where she met her Dutch husband He was a seaman aboard a minesweeper, which was bombed He survived and was sent to the south of Holland to guard the sluices However, when they had to abandon their post, they were told to escape if they could, and along with a small number of other men, he marched into Belgium They stole a ship and managed to get it across the Channel to Dover before being transferred to the Atlantic run on the convoys Sadly he became ill, and that was when he was transferred to hospital in Northern Ireland, where he met Betty They eventually married, and were blessed with a daughter They were posted to London, but were bombed out As with most of the population, they made the best of things.When the war finally ended, she and her husband were repatriated to Holland As his family had believed he had died when his ship went down, this was a very emotional homecoming The small family lived in Holland for 13 years, and Betty resumed her nursing career there When they decided to return to England, Betty continued her nursing and when she eventually retired she had reached the position of night superintendent.Betty Neels began writing almost by accident She had retired from nursing, but her inquiring mind had no intention of vegetating, and her new career was born when she heard a lady in her local library bemoaning the lack of good romance novels There was little in Betty s background to suggest that she might eventually become a much loved novelist.Her first book, Sister Peters in Amsterdam, was published in 1969, and by dint of often writing four books a year, she eventually completed 134 books She was always quite firm upon the point that the Dutch doctors who frequently appeared in her stories were not based upon her husband, but rather upon an amalgam of several of the doctors she met while nursing in Holland.To her millions of fans around the world, Betty Neels epitomized romance She was always amazed and touched that her books were so widely appreciated She never sought plaudits and remained a very private person, but it made her very happy to know that she brought such pleasure to so many readers, while herself gaining a quiet joy from spinning her stories It is perhaps a reflection of her upbringing in an earlier time that the men and women who peopled her stories have a kindliness and good manners, coupled to honesty and integrity, that is not always present in our modern world Her myriad of fans found a warmth and a reassurance of a better world in her stories, along with characters who touched the heart, which is all and than one could ask of a romance writer She received a great deal of fan mail, and there was always a comment upon the fascinating places she visited in her stories Quite often those of her fans fortunate enough to visit Holland did use h


    1. This book was, along with The Promise of Happiness, my shot at seeing if Betty Neels romances are my cuppa tea. The answer was no, not so much. They're very old-fashioned and rather stodgy. This one was written in 1983 but its style and sensibilities belong in the 1950s.Katrina, a 27 year old British woman who's starting to dress and act like a spinster, has a younger, beautiful but very spoiled sister, Virginia, who's been dating Katrina's lifelong friend Lucius. The relationship between Virgi [...]

    2. Alas, my reaction to this one is merely 'meh'. It just seemed flat, flat, flat. For starters--there are NO Rich Dutch Doctors. In fact, there is no medical anything in this book. Was Betty feeling okay or did her publisher want her to try her hand at a non-medical story. WhateverKatrina (who has no last name) is 27, dresses like 40; a painter who illustrates books and paints dust jacket designs. She also has a spoiled rotten, beautiful, younger sister.Katrina also has no spine and is blind to he [...]

    3. I love this book! Betty Neels moved outside the formula a bit. The hero is not a doctor. The heroine is not a nurse and not destitute. She is an illustrator and while she is an orphan looking out for a younger spoiled sister, she is fairly well off financially. She does carefully watch the budget with a sister who spends freely.Katrina and Lucius have been friends since childhood. Her earliest memory is when she is 3 years old mounted on her pony and he is 10, mounted on his horse and patiently [...]

    4. Katrina Gibson and her sister, Virginia are well-to-do orphans who live in an English country village. Lucius Massey is the boy next door who happens to be the local lord-of-the-manor. Some time before the story opens, Katrina had asked Lucius to take Virginia out to get her away from the other, less suitable young men she was dating. Virginia is, to put it bluntly, a spoiled brat, so when Lucius makes it clear to her that he has no intention of marrying her, she starts a rumor that Lucius is go [...]

    5. TGB hits it out of the park with this one IMO. Lucius and Katrina have grown up together along with her beautiful, spoilt sister. Virginia (the Veronica of the tale) starts a rumor about them to deflect from Lucius' rejection of her. Lucius who views this as an opportunity to get the girl he wants proposes a mock engagement to take the winds out of Virginia's haughty sails. Katie is stalwart, dependable and generous and views herself unfavorably next to Virginia's cookie cutter beauty. I loved L [...]

    6. This I felt was one of Betty Neels's different books. Sure, I can't get enough of the Rich Dutch Doctors or any Doctors for that matter, but it was a refreshing change. Lucius Massey ( An Accountant.yay!) has just dumped Katrina's sister Virginia or so it seems. Virginia gets her back on Lucius by saying it was because he fancied Katrina the whole time. So, he calls her bluff and starts courting Katrina and asks her to marry him. (Such heights just to protect his best friend, but surely the read [...]

    7. This was actually an audio book on 5 c.d's. I thought it was very clever. I am now going to hunt down the paper back version so I can hear the voices of the characters in my own head as I read it. First ever audio book for me.

    8. Different This story was very different from all Betty Neels other stories that I have read. No nurses or doctors in this one. Lovely description of Greece and a very nice story.

    9. One of the first Harlequin authors I remember reading. I was completely enthralled by the exotic locales in her books when I was 14. Now reading these books are more of a way of remembering the aunt who got me started on them. I'll probably always love them due to the nostalgia factor. her books will always be some of my favorites to re-read.
