Summary

Governess Juliana Ashbourne has dreams reaching far beyond the confines of her current position, hoping to someday establish her own school for girls. When she inherits a fortune from her late grandfather, she is shocked to learn that “someday” may soon be within reach. However, there is one condition: she must spend a month at the estate of Havenfield - with the very family who disowned her mother. Intent on securing the money she needs to start her school, Juliana accepts the invitation, vowing to guard her heart against those who shunned her all her life.

loved it!

I enjoyed listening to this story from beginning to end. or always kept me guessing what was going to happen next. The actor who reads it does a very nice job... never a dull moment.

Different narrator

The story was ok and kept my attention for the most part. However, the narrator was another story. The pitch was one thing, but she also kept mispronouncing words and her tone would be completely opposite from what the story said. When someone was supposed to be serious her voice would be light or teasing.

Couldn’t get finish this book

The story started out well but ended up frustrating me by chapter 6 or so. I tried to hang in there but couldn’t. The narration was horrific and almost painful to listen to. The storyline started out well but then dipped.

This is a fantastic book to listen to while on a long trip, at home, or even if you’re just looking for something entertaining!

I love these old romance books, but very few can keep my attention for long…however, this book was different. The narrator did an excellent job at portraying each character, and the storyline was exciting. A great combination for an entertaining book!

Good book but a little slow

It was a nice plot and I enjoyed the book but the reader had an interesting accent that didn’t sound right. And the plot was a little slow but overall I enjoyed it.
