Oh, how I love Regency-set books! And Julie Klassen’s stories are some of the best. The Tutor’s Daughter is no exception. Set on the dangerous Cornwall coast, in a manor house high on the cliffs, the tutor and his daughter find themselves in a house filled with secrets and strange happenings.
This story is a lovely mix of Jane Austenish characters with that gothic feel of the Bronte sisters thrown in. I also felt a hint of two more modern movies, but don’t want to mention them for fear of spoiling some of the story twists! It was a book that I hated setting down for even a moment–and one that stirred a desire to place yet another part of England on my travel wish list. If you enjoy all things British and historical, I think you’ll find The Tutor’s Daughter as captivating of a read as I did!
