  • About the book:

    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?

    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.

    My Review:
    I really enjoyed reading this book. I have read all of this author's books and liked them. So far this one is my favorite I think. It is well written with interesting characters and plot. There were several twists that added to the story. I love the setting for this book. Fans of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters will like it too. Recommended. :)
