this title was originally published in the anthology A Gentleman for All Seasons
The line between love and hate …
Belinda Leonard prefers things done a certain way, and has her life – and the entire village of Hemshawe – arranged to her liking. The only thorn in her side is the maddening presence of Adam Sturridge, who has delighted in disrupting Belinda’s perfectly ordered existence ever since they were children. But even though they are long past the age of pulling pigtails, Belinda and Adam cannot help but spark against each other every chance they get.
…is about to get blurry.
But when those sparks get noticed by a would-be matchmaker, things get turned on their head for Belinda and Adam. A few well-placed words have the pair questioning how they truly feel… and how long they have felt that way. But can these two stop squabbling long enough to overcome a lifetime of animosity and misunderstandings, and find their way to love?
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Ms. Noble presents the audience with a lovely short story here, that reminds us that romance can be found smack dab in the middle of your 'everyday'. This delightful day-in-the-life story of discovery of dormant and unrealized love just needs a little kick from a new comer on the scene (with a right word here or there) to push the boulder down the hill. MS. Nobles characters are, as always, well-realized, and relatable. "A Madness in Spring" delivers the goods as a succinct and endearing tale. Enjoyable and moving.
Sometimes people just need a push to let go of the comfortable status quo. The characters knew each other since children and finally realized they were the love of each other's lives. Wonderful. Believable and enjoyable. I wish it had been longer. Good read.
The beginning was hard to get into but as the story progresses I fell in love with the main characters.
