A Pennington Family Novella
Lady Millie, youngest of the Pennington family, has always lived in the shadow of her talented and powerful siblings. She's been the rock of stability and order for her sisters and brothers. Her future looks bright until fate deals her a tragic hand.
Dermot McKendry is a former surgeon in the Royal Navy who has returned to his home in the Highlands to open a hospital. As disorganized as he is passionate, he is a man with wounds and a secret past he has worked a lifetime to hide.
Providence brings them together, but their future may lie beyond redemption. Dearest Millie is a poignant tale of two lovers, life's calamities, and the healing power of the human heart.
SAD AND WONDERFUL AT THE SAME TIME!!
So sad and wonderful at the same time. Dearest Millie by May McGoldrick is a novella in the Pennington Family series. May has touched on a subject that is so dear to my heart so I just loved reading this story. If I had one thing to say is that it was not long enough and I feel this could have been a full book. Though sad there was so much humor in this story I could not stop laughing. May’s characters come alive and you can’t help but fall in love with them. Her descriptions are so vivid and clear that you feel as if you are back in the 1800s in the regency era. What wonderful writing! This story has tragic news, understanding, kindness, lots of animals, wit, practical jokes, sadness, loneliness, a family’s love, caring, death and love. I highly recommend this book, you won’t be disappointed.

A Wonderful Story
Such a beautifully written story that pulled at my heart. There was a range of emotions as the pages turned that went from deep sadness to the heart finding love in an unexpected way. Lady Millie was the youngest of the Pennington's and the strength to her siblings. It seemed to be her turn now but as fate takes a hand tragedy strikes. But as was seemingly meant to be Dermot, a former Navy surgeon comes to town to open a hospital and comes into Millie's life.
A tale of how much the human spirit can take and persevere even with humor at times. Throw in some wonderful animals and a few other tidbits and the author takes you on a journey that you will not soon forget. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great story! You will be glad you did
