My Thoughts About the Tutor’s Daughter:
Be still my heart, the Tutor’s Daughter is everything a Jane Austen fan could hope for. Julie Klassen has captured the wit, the heart and the adventure of our most beloved Jane Austen. Emma Smallwood is a beautiful mixture of many of Austen’s different characters and the gift of being able to journey alongside her in this book was a precious gift.
I was drawn in right from the beginning and went on an adventure, sometimes on the edge of my seat, with Emma and the Weston brothers. Rich with character, story lines that were unexpected and a sweet story of love and redemption…what more could you ask for in a Christian Fiction book. I am absolutely going to be checking out the other books Julie Klassen has written.
About The Tutor’s Daughter:
Filled with page-turning suspense, The Tutor’s Daughter takes readers to the windswept Cornwall coast-a place infamous for shipwrecks and superstitions-where danger lurks, faith is tested, and romance awaits.
Emma Smallwood, determined to help her widowed father when his boarding school fails, accompanies him to the cliff-top manor of a baronet and his four sons. But soon after they arrive and begin teaching the two younger boys, mysterious things begin to happen. Who does Emma hear playing the pianoforte at night, only to find the music room empty? And who begins sneaking into her bedchamber, leaving behind strange mementoes?
The baronet’s older sons, Phillip and Henry Weston, wrestle with problems-and secrets-of their own. They both remember the studious Miss Smallwood from their days at her father’s academy. But now one of them finds himself unexpectedly drawn to her…
When suspicious acts escalate, can Emma figure out which brother to blame and which to trust with her heart?
