Summary

For a respectable governess like Harriet Unwin, her first few weeks in the shabby, inhospitable home of the Partingtons were as unhappy as any she could remember. The bone-chilling cold, the grim sparseness of the meals, the embittered meanness of old Mr Partington: But for the kindness shown by his son, her spirit must surely have been crushed. But worse was to come for Harriet. Her chance discovery of the old man's cherished secret was, she felt sure, the cause of the attack that finally stilled his heart.

Thoroughly Victorian

This is the 2nd Miss Unwin to which I've listened. I again enjoyed it very much. Sheila Mitchell has grown on me as the narrator to such an extent that I cannot imagine anyone else reading these very victorian stories. A great ending to the book.
