    "Fabulous narration for Jane Austenesque story"

    I started reading this as a Net Galley advance copy but I had listened to all of Julie's other books on audible.com downloads. So, frankly, I had been spoiled. As soon as I discovered the download was available I purchased it and began listening. The narrator couldn't be any more perfect for this book, which really enhanced my reading pleasure. Julie and Jane lovers will not be disappointed!!! Worth the wait!

    Story
    "Fabulous!!!"

    Emma Smallwood helps her father run his school for boys called The Smallwood Academy. Emma lost her mother two years prior to the start of this story and as a result finds her father unmotivated and melancholy. Since they have no more students, Emma, worried not only about their financial situation but also her father's depressed state of mind, comes up with the idea of sending a letter to Mr. Weston who had his oldest two sons attend their academy in the past. The letter invited him to consider their academy for his younger twin boys as well. Mr Weston responds by inviting Emma and her father to go to their home Cornwall to privately tutor the two youngest sons. Emma is surprised to find her father not only receptive to the idea but also looking forward to taking up that offer. Emma herself is not too excited about meeting the older son Henry again since he played a lot of pranks on her when he lived with them. Once they arrive at the manor, they find their welcome less than warm and completely unexpected by all except Lord Weston who had forgotten about their arrival and had not informed anyone else of it either. The strange screams in the night and the sense of having someone in her room in the middle of the night in addition to the residents of the manor's strange behavior and start of unpleasant pranks again has Emma puzzled. Everyone keeps telling her that there is a resident ghost in the manor but she realizes that nothing in that house is as it seems. Most seem to be hiding something.

    I truly enjoyed reading this book. I personally am not a religious person and was surprised by the turn of the story into one that was much more strongly religious. I respect those that do believe in God and am sure that most if not all of you believers will enjoy that part and find it most gratifying.

    It was extremely difficult for me to guess who was behind all the pranks but the love story which blossomed was easy to see from the start. I loved Henry's character and his solid personality and the strength and kindness of Emma. All characters were very well developed and the story had well developed facets. A very well done book.

    What did you love best about The Tutor's Daughter?

    everything! wonderful story, charming, funny, witty, felt like I was there, the descriptions were so real.


    What about Elizabeth Jasicki’s performance did you like?

    everything! her accent truly added to the story, well read and she has a wonderful ability to make the words come alive.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    both, I had little chuckles all throughout the book and a little tear here and there.

    "Fantastic!"
    What did you love best about The Tutor's Daughter?

    I loved this book. It is so refreshing without all the smut in so many books. I have listened to it 3 times. As a former teacher, I would recommend it to everyone. I am 65 but it makes me wish I was 20 again!

    "Liked the story skipped the inspirational parts"

    I really like Julie Klassen's writing. However, I'm not into the inspirational bits. I just fast forward through the religious parts and continue with the story.
