Product Description

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?

    This is the third book that I have read by Julie Klassen and she is easily becoming a favorite author of mine. I enjoy all of her books and I think this one might be my favorite so far. I loved the story and the characters. I loved the fact that they couldn't be together because they were in different social classes, but there was still an attraction between them. The story also had a bit of mystery that made me want to keep on reading to find out what would happen. The story was well written and it was a unique storyline, which was refreshing to read. As the mystery began to unfold, I would be surprised by some of the revelations. This was a book that I couldn't put down and I would definitely recommend it!

    Really enjoyed this book. Julie Klassen is one of my favourite authors, once I start reading I can't seem to put the book down because I'm enthralled with the characters and what's going to happen next. Big fan of the Jane Austen style of stories and Julie Klassen does it best!!!!

    With each novel I read from Miss Julie Klassen I become more and more in love with her stories and her writing!

    The Silent Governess is the third book I have read from Miss Klassen, and within its pages we journey with Olivia Keene. From the first few pages we learn that Olivia was trained by her father at a young age to be good with numbers. This knowledge as well as her schooling at Miss Cresswell's proves to be quite beneficial in her future. Especially when she flees everything she's known.

    Lord Bradley is a fine character. Though at times he seems a little rough around the edges, he has a profound love for his young cousins. Watching he and Olivia grow in their faith and fall in love was so enjoyable. I spent most of the afternoon reading!

    Once again Miss Klassen has provided a well thought out plot, characters, and a realistic setting that has me pining to go back. :-)

    I checked this book out at the library. No review required.

    Although the first 1/3 of this book is a bit tedious, the latter 2/3 certainly makes up for it! As such, I still definitely recommend the book.

    I think the reasons why I found the first 1/3 slow are: (1) the main character's inability to speak (a major part of the story) prevented me from forming a connection with her, and (2) I am used to more romantically-intense historical romances, with lots of tension between the hero and heroine from the get-go, but in this book, their romance develops gradually (which, admitedly, is more realistic).

    But after that 2/3 barrier, the story really takes off, as we get to know the characters on a deeper level, the stakes keep getting higher and higher, and conspiracies start to pile up. Honestly, by the end, I was shocked that the author was able to tie so many loose ends together perfectly - many mysteries and thrillers I've read didn't even have that many threads! I also must commend the author for her creativity - absolutely nothing in this book seemed cliche, and many events occurred that were entirely unexpected.

    All in all, it is well worth your time investment to get through the first 1/3. I will definitely be reading more by this author.

    It really held my interest from the beginning to the end. I have not read any of her books before. I like the mystery in it also. I was unable to lay it down and read until 2 in the morning.
