A Noble Mistress - Janis Laden Normally, I don't like the "Big Misunderstanding" theme. Granted the heroine had reason to distrust the hero even right to the end as circumstances played out but if she had once let him finish a sentence during the crises hour with her father's attempted suicide, she may not have believed him then but I could see that in her practical nature she would have thought about things more and possible could have spared both of them some agony.
