Book Review - "The Tutor's Daughter"
Emma is trying to help her father as he finds himself without no students at his boarding school and unable to pay bills. Emma writes a letter to the Weston family and receives a letter in return requesting that she and her father come to tutor the younger two sons. However, Emma has a history with the older boys, Henry and Phillip, as they used to attend her father's boarding school. When Emma arrives she realizes that not all is how it appears to be as her arrival is a surprise. Emma finds herself in the midst of an interesting family with mysterious things happening and secrets that are being discovered. Emma is not sure to trust and whom she can trust her heart with.
This is an excellent story that transported me back in time to early 1800's and into a world so different from today. I liked Emma right away, she is determined, devoted to her father and willing to take risks, but also cautious. This is well-written historical fiction and if you have enjoyed other books by Julie Klassen, then this is a must-read for you!
