“The idea of pairing the pretty governess with the widowed nobleman is not a new one, but the addition of some fresh elements — as well as some Downton Abbey-reminiscent POV switches! — make this sweet inspirational romance interesting and enjoyable.
The upstairs/downstairs drama, servant gossip, and backdoor scheming of minor characters make for a fast-paced read with great texture. Set in the interesting time when horse-drawn carriages and motorcars co-existed among the elite, a time when England’s noble classes were facing new governmental challenges to keeping their lifestyles aligned for the next generation, The Governess of Highland Hall is worthy reading for any fan of English period romance.”
