About the book ( from

Believing herself guilty of a crime, Olivia Keene flees her home, eventually stumbling upon a grand estate where an elaborate celebration is in progress. But all is not as joyous as it seems.

Lord Bradley has just learned a terrible secret, which, if exposed, will change his life forever. When he glimpses a figure on the grounds, he fears a spy or thief has overheard his devastating news. He is stunned to discover the intruder is a scrap of a woman with her throat badly injured. Fearing she will spread his secret, he gives the girl a post and confines her to his estate. As Olivia and Lord Bradley’s secrets catch up with them, will their hidden pasts ruin their hope of finding love?

-My Review

I love Julie Klassen’s book, she continually delivers Jane Austen-esque reads. Her books are both beautifully written and authentic to the times.

The Silent Governess is a great love story full of intrigue, mystery, and secrets that won’t stay secret for long.

For those of us who can never get enough Jane in a unfortunately Jane-less world, this is the best and closest author you can read. Though, she still sustains her own voice and characters throughout the pages. The Silent Governess is not my favorite of Julie’s Three books, but it’s still one that is a must read for a Jane-ite.

Thanks to Bethany House for providing this book for me to review!
