Publisher's Summary

From its opening sentences Agnes Grey introduces a heroine who is honest, perceptive and charming. Unfortunately, the Bloomfields, who engage her as a governess, are rather less appealing, and the incarnation of the suppressed cruelties and hypocrisies of the Victorian age. When Agnes moves to a marginally less alarming family, one of her charges sets out to disrupt her only romantic hope. Critical, satirical, direct, and honest, Agnes Grey is a fine reflection of its author.

Another Bronte author - Anne Bronte

I liked this little book. The story was interesting, a bit didactic, perhaps even preachy in doing good and right, in meting out judgment on the 'bad' or 'naughty' kids. But it is well written (grammatically and stylistically speaking"). The story is predictable, and the first part of the story is perhaps not entirely necessary to the bigger plot line. It really is a story about being a good girl, being content, doing with less, money isn't everything.
