My ThoughtsThis sweet little lesson in love gets nothing but the highest marks from this reviewer.
Claire and her friends are ladies on a mission. A mission to pursue the careers they love on their own terms; and as a governess to a titled family Claire is doing her best to lead the charge.
That is until the day that a charming and handsome young tutor is hired.
This book may only be 100 pages, but it is a wonderfully orchestrated saga filled with passion,
Claire is a very smart and down to earth lady, who is unafraid to go for what she wants; whether it be in love or life.
Jacob is a man adrift; who believing himself to be unworthy of the posh life to which he was born,
sets out to find himself.
What they and the lucky readers of this story encounter is a tale so romantic and sweet that Disney could take notes.
This novella is the perfect little escape for the harried heart looking for a happy ending and a smile.
