Intriguing
4 stars By Hannah, Sep 02 2017
Forced into a situation she never thought she'd be in, Olivia becomes governess to two mischievous children - and part of a growing mystery which may cost her her life. I loved this book, captivated from the first page to the last as I became part of Olivia and Bradley's story and the mystery they unwittingly inherited. It was sweet, intriguing, beautiful, challenging - a story of faith, worth and family. Julie Klassen is a brilliant writer and this book is one of her best.

Enchanting
5 stars By Johanna, Aug 24 2016
I couldn't WAIT to buy this book! Never would Olivia have believed secrets to lead to finding love. That was last thing on her mind as she was trying to escape her home. She didn't need to keep someone else's for she was busy trying to keep her own! She needed to establish herself away from her past, but the further away she was going, she seemed to be getting closer to what she left behind. The interest Lord Bradley shows Olivia when she gets her voice back was the beginning of their future. He just didn't know how intently he was watching her enjoy life looking after his nieces and nephews until he discovered that's all he wanted to see; the joy on their faces. Subtle love and romance, it's there. Secrets. Everyone has them. Nobody wants to lose theirs. But are they all related? You think you know, but then you don't.

Enjoyable
3 stars By Susan, Dec 20 2014
I had never read anything by this author before, so was a little unsure to begin with. The story was in many places quite predictable and I found it slightly contrived, but there were unexpected twists and it was a reasonable plotline. Although this isn't a book I would read over and over again, it was a light, enjoyable read.

Fantastic Fiction
4 stars By Shei, Dec 09 2014
Easy read to come home to at the end of a hard working day. Parts of the plot are very predictable, but there are several enjoyable twists that kept my attention for the entire read. Good value for dollar. Characters are easy to relate to and personally I adored the personality quirks the author added in for the children.
