The Silent Governess

Bethany House; Original edition (January 1, 2010)

by Julie Klassen
"Jane Austen-Era Romance from an Acclaimed Author!"
Kay's Comments: The quote above says it! Each of Julie Klassen's books is rich with history and intrigue with a subtle romance. The reader can’t help but fall in love with the charm and vulnerability of the characters.

The Silent Governess is another of Klassen's captivating novels. Uncovering secrets keeps the reader engrossed. A short synopsis and the first chapter below gives you an idea of the plot. As always, I recommend Julie Klassen’s books.


Olivia Keene is fleeing her own secret. She never intended to overhear his.

But now that she has, what is Lord Bradley to do with her? He cannot let her go, for were the truth to get out, he would lose everything--his reputation, his inheritance, his very home.

He gives Miss Keene little choice but to accept a post at Brightwell Court, where he can make certain she does not spread what she heard. Keeping an eye on the young woman as she cares for the children, he finds himself drawn to her, even as he struggles against the growing attraction. The clever Miss Keene is definitely hiding something.

Moving, mysterious, and romantic, The Silent Governess takes readers inside the intriguing life of a nineteenth-century governess in an English manor house where all is not as it appears.
