This is a mystery set in Victorian London with a light romantic element. Even though the heroine was a vicar's daughter there wasn't much of a Christian aspect which was fine.

This is about a young lady named Rachel who becomes a governess to two children in a mansion owned by a widower. The widower leaves, and his brother, Townsend, and aunt, Verdonia, arrive. There's a mystery to be solved as objects begin to disappear--and as Rachel tries to figure out what Townsend's true feelings are for her.
