Book Review: The Tutor's Daughter

The Tutor’s Daughter

Filled with page-turning suspense, The Tutor’s Daughter takes readers to the windswept Cornwall coast–a place infamous for shipwrecks and superstitions–where danger lurks, faith is tested, and romance awaits. 

Emma Smallwood, determined to help her widowed father when his boarding school fails, accompanies him to the cliff-top manor of a baronet and his four sons. But soon after they arrive and begin teaching the two younger boys, mysterious things begin to happen. Who does Emma hear playing the pianoforte at night, only to find the music room empty? And who begins sneaking into her bedchamber, leaving behind strange mementoes?

The baronet’s older sons, Phillip and Henry Weston, wrestle with problems–and secrets–of their own. They both remember the studious Miss Smallwood from their days at her father’s academy. But now one of them finds himself unexpectedly drawn to her…

When suspicious acts escalate, can Emma figure out which brother to blame and which to trust with her heart?

...a very good read.  Loved it.  Plenty of suspense to keep you going as you wonder what the 'secret' is, and of course, a romance or two that will keep you on your toes.

I loved the setting of this book, the high cliffs and the strong ocean waves, add to the sense of mystery and you can practically smell the ocean as you read.

There were quite a few characters in this book, but they were easy to get to know, and it didn't take long at all for me to feel as though I knew each one personally, I would definitely recommend this book.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for review from Litfuse
