The Silent Governess ~ by Julie Klassen

Secrets, intrigue, romance, nobility, The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen, has them all! It is a long book at over 400 pages, but moved at such a comfortable pace, it seemed surprising that I finished it so quickly. It was thoroughly enjoyable! Klassen’s love of classic English literature is evident in the way she carefully crafts her characters and so vividly describes the setting. It is easy to actually “see” the picture she paints with her words. The story is captivating and pulls at the heart. This is the first book I’ve read of Ms. Klassen, but I eagerly look forward to more. I heartily recommend this book for those who love historical, and more specifically, regency, novels. It is well worth the time to read.

This book was provided to me for review by Bethany House Publishers.
