Publisher's Summary

Missionary Julia Foster loves working alongside her parents, but when the family must return to England due to illness, she readily accepts the burden for her parents' financial support. Taking on a job at Highland Hall as governess, she quickly finds that teaching her four ill-mannered charges at a grand estate is more challenging than expected. Widowed and left to care for his two young children and his deceased cousin's two teenage girls, William Ramsey is consumed with saving the estate from financial ruin. The last thing he needs is any distraction coming from the kindhearted-yet-determined governess who seems to be quietly transforming his household with her persuasive personality. Julia and William are determined to do what it takes to save their families-common ground that proves fertile for unexpected feelings. But will William choose Julia's steadfast heart and faith over the wealth and power he needs to secure Highland Hall's future?

    "The Narrator"

    I enjoyed every part of the story line. The narrator's voice was great except for Williams. It was too raspy.

    "Um"

    I read the hardcopy first and loved it. In listening to the Audible version I noticed that one of the characters complained of having "...a devil of a time..." doing something. Detracted from the Christian inspirational theme.
    Other than that, the book was a comfort food sort of story and I would like to try other books by this author.
