But after they arrive and begin teaching the younger boys, mysterious things begin to happen and danger mounts. Who does Emma hear playing the pianoforte, only to find the music room empty? Who sneaks into her room at night? Who rips a page from her journal, only to return it with a chilling illustration? The baronet's older sons, Phillip and Henry, wrestle with problems--and secrets--of their own. They both remember Emma Smallwood from their days at her father's academy. She had been an awkward, studious girl. But now one of them finds himself unexpectedly drawn to her. When the suspicious acts escalate, can the clever tutor's daughter figure out which brother to blame...and which brother to trust with her heart?

I had a hard time staying interested in this at first. I trudged along, and I'm glad I did!!! It ended up being a very interesting story with more engagement towards the last 3rd of the book. The author writes well, kept it interesting and not soppy and did a great job with scenery description. If, like me, you find it slow moving at first, keep after it. It is definitely worth the read!

Excellent book! This is by far my favorite novel by Julie Klassen. It kept my interest the whole time and I read it within two days.

Julie Klassen does a masterful job developing her story. While the characters will intrigue the reader, the setting will mesmerize them. The plot is crafted very well and will offer suspenseful delight to the audience.

Julie Klassen has a gift for writing. I have been impressed with every book she has written so far, and this was no exception. I recently read The Maid of Fairbourne Hall and thought that was it, I'd found
my favourite of her books forevermore but now I'm not so sure. I loved this story just as much. Her style is so smooth and seamless, with enough description and depth of both scene and characters to place you right inside the story without bogging you down or distracting you with details. Her settings are always very different than the usual fare most of us have come to expect, and you only think you know what's going to happen by the end of the third chapter. Sometimes that's because you're intentionally left in the dark, but the author gives you clues here, they just don't necessarily lead where you would expect. There are many twists and turns and I was kept guessing and on my toes to figure out exactly what was going on.

I love it when I learn about a new area or see a place in a new light while reading a story or when the author delves a little deeper into what life was like way back in another time period. The Tutor's Daughter is set in Regency England in Cornwall in a manor overlooking a village on the coast that regularly chews up and spits out ships and their cargos and crews. I was surprised to learn how the locals reacted to shipwrecks off their rocky shore, but I don't want to spoil the story.

This was an fun, engaging read and I would recommend it to any friend.

I received this ebook from Bethany House Publishers for an honest review. My opinion is my own. Thank you Bethany House!
