The Schoolmaster's Daughter

Meredith Resce

The Schoolmaster's Daughter

Meredith Resce

$10.99

Paperback

Despite a hard start in life, Jillian Schrouder has overcome the disadvantage of not being able to hear or speak. But despite the fact that she has been introduced into normal society, there are those in the community who simply cannot accept that she is an ordinary young girl who has hopes and dreams, and who has feelings.
Ted Jansen has high regard for his teacher, Richard Schrouder, who is more like a father to him, since his own father is a hopeless drunk. But Ted cannot, or will not, understand that the schoolmaster's daughter is intelligent and quite capable of understanding all the dreadful things he says about her.
Ted has employed the schoolmaster's wife to clean his house while he is at work, but what he doesn't know is that there has been a change. The person he thinks is his friend and housekeeper, whose little notes of encouragement brighten his day, is actually the person he considers an idiot.

Didn't want it to end
4 stars By Jo, Jul 23 2012
This is the second book in a 2 book series, the first being 'The Schoolmaster's Bride'. I really enjoyed the first book but  I think I loved this one even more. It is like revisiting old friends. The characters and setting were well developed in 'The Schoolmaster's Bride' and this book picks up the story a few years later. The story revolves around Jillian Schrouder and Ted Jansen. Jillian is the deaf daughter of the schoolmaster and Ted is the son of the town drunk. The characters well rounded, very believable and at times challenging! This book and 'The Schoolmaster's Bride' were the first books that  I had read by Meredith Resce; I will certainly be reading more.
