review: The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen

we all have secrets, and the main character in The Silent Governess, Olivia Keene, is no exception. but as she is in the process of fleeing from her own secret, she happens upon the secret of another. someone who cannot afford to have her share what she discovered.

but before Olivia has a chance to say a word of what she discovered, an attack leaves her without a voice and even fewer options. Lord Bradley, whose secret she is now in possession of, demands she accept a position caring for two young children in his home, so he can keep an eye on her and ensure that his life-altering secret does not get out.

filled with mystery, the bonds of friendship, the power of love and the tangled roots of a family tree, you can see the author's love of 'all things Jane— Jane Eyre and Jane Austen' {author's bio} throughout the story.

if you like historical fiction, with a little nineteenth-century england flavor, you will love this book.

available january 2010 at your favorite bookseller.
