The Silent Governess {Book Review}

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Olivia Keene flees her village and the only life she has ever know because she believes she has done something horrible ~ and unforgivable. In her travels, she accidentally overhears some sensitive information about Lord Bradley that causes her even more problems.

If the secret is shared, Lord Bradley stands to lose more than he can fathom, so he employs Olivia in exchange for her silence ~ and to keep a watchful eye on her. Fortunately for him, her voice was injured in a recent accident and she is forced to remain silent. 

My Thoughts

I am a HUGE fan of Regency period books and The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen is one that has found a permanent spot on my bookshelves! Just when I thought I had things figured out in the book, there was another twist {or two} that kept wondering until the end of the book.

From the start of the book, I was hooked and literally couldn’t put it down ~ and with 4 young children, that is a feat in and of itself! Klassen created some wonderful characters and very subtly weaved in what it truly means to be a follower of Christ while providing a glimpse into the working class life of the 1800’s.
