The Governess of Penwythe Hall by Sarah E. Ladd


I always enjoy a good regency era book and this one most definitely fit the spot. It captivated me from start to finish. The book cover promised an interesting read and it didn’t not disappoint.

This is a book where once you start it you best have time to finish it within the allotted time or else, you will be spending the rest of the time wanting to finish it.

The story is about Cordelia Greythorne who fled her home of three years to start new. Blamed for knowledge of her husband’s death she never intended on returning home to the Cornwall coast. But three years later, her employer’s death has sent her charges to live with his brother—on the Cornwall coast. Here she must face her demons of old.

The brother, Jan Trethewey, is in the midst of trying to bring Penwythe Hall back to life with it orchards. While he is struggling with this, he discovers that he is the guardian of his brother’s five children, along with, their governess and tutor. Through out all this he tries to manage it all.

This is an excellent book and well worth setting aside some time to read it.

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy through the reading program, Book Look Bloggers.
