The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen


From the Publisher:

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?

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.


My Thoughts:

As I read The Tutor’s Daughter by Julie Klassen, I found myself hoping that it gets made into a movie – it’s THAT good!!

The Tutor’s Daughter is a “can’t put down,” page-turning read that transported me back to 1812 England. While I expected a great romance story woven throughout the book, I didn’t expect the mystery within the pages of this story – what a pleasant surprise!

Well-researched, well-written, and well-developed, The Tutor’s Daughter will draw readers deep into its page and leave them feeling as if they have lived out the story with the fictional characters.

I give The Tutor’s Daughter five out five stars.
