Book Review: The Tutor’s Daughter, by Julie Klassen
This book was delightful. Ms. Klassen writes well in this time period. Her research of the period and whatever particulars are included in the book is thorough, but not overbearing in the story. She balances excellently the descriptions of the characters and setting with dialog and action. I especially enjoyed this book because I was never quite sure of the hero. When reading a romance novel, it is clear who will be the hero, in most cases. In this book, however, I had an inkling, but there was uncertainty as to what would happen.
Emma, the tutor’s daughter, finds herself seeking to help her father as his services are engaged instructing the younger two half-brothers of two of his former pupils. While there, strange goings-on make her uncertain of her believed affection of the second-eldest brother, and also of her disdain for the eldest. As the story unfolds, she discovers that things are not always what they seem, and that sometimes God calls us to trust more deeply than we ever thought we could.
If you enjoy Regency Romances, this is a great one to add to your reading list.
