Teaser Tuesday – The Silent Governess

   Posted by: lizjohnson   in Teaser Tuesdays

teaser_tuesdays1MizB of Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event

Here are the rules:
* Grab your current read
* Let the book fall open to a random page
* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12
*You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
* Please avoid spoilers!

This week’s teaser is:
“Heart pounding with fear and regret, Olivia Keene ran as thought hellbounds were on her heels. As though her very life depended upon her escape. ”
pg. 15  - The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen

- Three chapters in, and I am hooked! Every chapter the danger is heightened, and our heroine Olivia Keene finds herself deeper and deeper in trouble. I’m so intrigued by the plot about a young woman who saves her mother from her father’s attack, but ends up on the run. I confess the one thing that I’m disappointed about is that I thought Olivia was mute. I thought she was literally a “silent” governess. Nope. Not so much. She’s just hiding secrets. :) But it’s still a lovely book with beautiful writing! Highly recommended so far.

I finished this book a few weeks ago. It was actually the first of Klassen’s books that I was able to read all the way through without having to force myself to do so. A very sweet story.

Clarification: That isn’t to say the first two were poorly written or not good stories, just not subject matters that interested me or stories that were able to hold my attention when fifty other pressing needs were vying for it.

Thanks for the recommendation, Kaye! :) I’m really enjoying this book. :) I haven’t read any of Julie’s other books, but this one is delightful.
