Hi!
I'm searching for a book and hoping someone may recognize this plot:
  • h and H were childhood sweethearts, but H had to go away for university (I think it was UChicago)
  • H didn't have a lot of money but would come back when he could by bus to see the h
  • H and h get into a fight. He comes back to try to make up with h and sees h with another guy (it may have been a misunderstanding, I can't remember) so H goes back to Chicago and hooks up with his study buddy
  • H marries study buddy when she gets pregnant (I think they lose the child)
  • Present day H is eventually divorced and has a successful career in Chicago (I think as an architect or engineer)
  • H comes back to town (which he rarely does) to see his last remaining relative there (I think it was his uncle)
  • h and H start to fall in love again

Hi everyone!

I'm looking for an old original fiction, not a published book but a story published on either WordPress, Blogspot or Wattpad. The name of it was The Matchmaker's Promise if I remember correctly. I believe it was placed in Victorian times and centers around a young woman from a small village who goes to her village matchmaker to be married. The matchmaker finds a husband for her who she does not meet until her wedding day. It turns out that her husband is the village outcast that everyone believes to be some kind of wicked. Since the young woman is already married to him when she and everyone else realize who he is she is stuck being married to him. The matchmaker gives her advice of "You will be happy if..." But the woman is not able to hear the rest of the message. She goes to live with her now husband who is kind of cruel and distant and odd. There's a part in the story where the woman finds some roses hidden in a part of the house and cuts them to place at the dinner table. When her husband sees the roses he gets infuriated and ends up throwing a glass at her I think. Later she finds out that her husband is the son of the matchmaker who is a witch and he is a wizard of some kind and uses a tea made from special roses to lessen some of his magical symptoms. They start to fall in love when the villagers abduct her and attack the home of her husband to kill him but he escapes. She discovers she's pregnant while he is away and is planning to escape if he does not come for her. I think he goes to rescue her eventually and they move away to raise their child in peace. Hopefully someone recognizes this old story and has a copy of it since I'm dying to read it again. Any help is appreciated!

Sounds familiar but I can't place it  :(
Nothing takes out the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love
