Five Stars *****
I listened to the recorded version of Julie Klassen’s book "The Silent Governess" through Audible.com. This was a very romantic Regency story and a great listen! Please note that one of the reviews on Audible is horribly incorrect. We discussed in the HisWriters (a Christian European novel writers' group) about how this can happen and there is almost no recourse for the writer. I loved this book and have started listening to it a second time through.
The wonderful hero, Lord Bradley, at the beginning of the story requires the heroine to remain silent. I was pleased that this was not a traumatized woman who was unable to speak. Julie did a great job of unfolding their romance very carefully and building up questions so that you wonder if their love will be an impossibility. The Silent Governess won the Christy award for 2010 and deservedly so!
Formats for those with special needs: Available on Christian Book Distributors as a paperback and e-book. Also through Amazon as a Kindle book, paperback, and on CD but the CD version was over $100.00. I would recommend the Audible download.
Bibliotherapy components: Rejection by a parent, math giftedness, illegitimate children, and keeping secrets.
