"The Governess of Highland Hall" by Carrie Turansky is set in the early 1900's. Julia Foster and her parents were missionaries to India and had to go home to England when her father became ill. Unable to support his family, Julia takes a job at Highland Hall as a governess to 2 young children as well as the master's (William) 2 teenage cousins whose parents have died.
The children are ill mannered, the master has trusting issues due to his late wife's life, and some of the help at the manor make Julia's life a challenge.
Both Julia and William are doing what they can to support their own families and come head to head more than once.
Carrie Turansky is a new author to me, but I loved this book and can't wait to read the next one in the series. However, it doesn't come out until fall of next year!
