Review: A poor girl decides to help her family out and become a governess but has no experience, she gets sent to a family with no discipline or respect and than after a year has to find a new location with children that are still bratty and spoilt though while there she finds a friend who runs their church.
I liked this story it was sweet, this woman worked for nothing for herself and used all she earns to help her poor family, she worked with the worst children imaginable but still held herself together and in return for sticking it out she found herself with an opportunity to find someone really special.
I loved the simple romance you could see the instant that she saw him, it was sweet and natural which I love. It was a really great easy read, I love these classics made in an easier simpler way.
