The Silent Governess
Full Product Description
But now that she has, what is Lord Bradley to do with her? He cannot let her go, for were the truth to get out, he would lose everything--his reputation, his inheritance, his very home.
He gives Miss Keene little choice but to accept a post at Brightwell Court, where he can make certain she does not spread what she heard. Keeping an eye on the young woman as she cares for the children, he finds himself drawn to her, even as he struggles against the growing attraction. The clever Miss Keene is definitely hiding something.
Moving, mysterious, and romantic, The Silent Governess takes readers inside the intriguing life of a nineteenth-century governess in an English manor house where all is not as it appears.
The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen was published by Bethany House in February 2010 and is our 17219th best seller. The ISBN for The Silent Governess is 9780764207075.

Perfect Plane ReadingAnne Rogers, Sales & Marketing Manager, BPG UK
Julie Klassen's third novel is definitely her best yet. Olivia Keene is a runaway with a big secret, who blunders into Edward Bradley's own secret with life-changing consequences for them both (not just in the obvious or expected ways!). A multi-layered 'mystery romance', with lots of twists and turns and a whole host of great characers, I hope Julie's next is as good as this one.

Another Julie Klassen, and another story set in 19th Century England; well researched and an accurate picture of the times. You know when you pick this book up that you are not going to want to put it down till the end!
Olivia Keene flees her home in great distress and eventually finds herself employed at Brightwell Court first as a Nursery Under-Nurse and then as her worth is realised as Governess to the children.
That story line is only a fraction of the tangled web that Julie Klassen actually weaves in this absorbing book. The quotations at the start of each chapter are peculiarly apt, almost written to fit this book rather than written long ago. I was easily able to imagine myself in Olivia’s position and feel her fear, frustration and loneliness, and felt relief as the tangled story was resolved into happiness at last.
