About The Tutor's Daughter
Filled with page-turning suspense, The Tutor's Daughter takes readers to the windswept Cornwall coast-a place infamous for shipwrecks and superstitions-where danger lurks, faith is tested, and romance awaits.

Emma Smallwood, determined to help her widowed father when his boarding school fails, accompanies him to the cliff-top manor of a baronet and his four sons. But soon after they arrive and begin teaching the two younger boys, mysterious things begin to happen. Who does Emma hear playing the pianoforte at night, only to find the music room empty? And who begins sneaking into her bedchamber, leaving behind strange mementoes?

The baronet's older sons, Phillip and Henry Weston, wrestle with problems-and secrets-of their own. They both remember the studious Miss Smallwood from their days at her father's academy. But now one of them finds himself unexpectedly drawn to her...

When suspicious acts escalate, can Emma figure out which brother to blame and which to trust with her heart? 

My Thoughts About This Book...
There was a slight problem with getting a copy of this book from the publisher, so I haven't finished it yet, so I'll just share a few things I've noticed. After I finish it, I'll post my overall opinion and review.

It's no secret that Julie Klassen is one of my all-time favorite authors, and she didn't disappoint this time around either. Engaging and well written, I admire how she was able to write a heroine that is both shy, reserved, and yet faces her family's problems head on. Financial difficulties are looming overhead and there aren't any more students at her father's school. Her father, after the loss of his wife, is saddened and unable to attend to the duties that are rightfully his ~ so Emma, proper Emma, takes matters into her own hands. Suddenly faced with an uncomfortable option she hadn't expected, she must either accept that life is constantly changing and be thrust out of her comfort zone or run from life and let her father decide for himself what to do.

~ Remember, I haven't finished this book yet, as I received it very late (no one's fault, just saying) so my entire review will be forthcoming!
