Book Review: The Tutor's Daughter


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?

My Opinion
If you like books set in historical England, then let me be the first to recommend The Tutor's Daughter.

I love this setting for books because I love learning about different cultures, ways of life, and the castles that royals and the rich lived in back then! Not only did Julie Klassen mix in these great elements into this book but she also add a great romance, drama, conflict, and mystery!

It was very well written just like all her books are and I waited breathlessly throughout the book to see what would happen with Emma each turn and decision she made in life and to see which Weston brother she would eventually fall in love with. I won't ruin the ending, but let me just say YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED! :)
