My Review:
I'm absolutely loving Julie Klassen's books!! As I mentioned in my review on the Painter's Daughter, I'd never read any of her books before. After reading the first one, and loving it immensely, I put on hold ALL of her books from the library. I've already finished every one :) The Silent Governess is definitely one of my top three favorites of her books.

I loved everything about this book; especially the plot, unique to any I've read. I loved the romance and intrigue, along with the splendidly written characters. Olivia, being my favorite of course. She had a vulnerability that makes you instantly love her but it's her strength and determination that truly wins you over.

If you've never read any of Julie Klassen's books before don't waste anymore time! I would recommend reading one the next opportunity that you get.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
