I've been without an ebook since I finished Lorna Doone. Thought I could do it, but I was wrong!! Had to start another one ... this one started off great!

This is a wonderful book. I'm left wondering why I haven't read more of the Bronte sisters' books. To date, the only one I'd read was Charlotte's Jane Eyre which is definitely in my top 5 all-time favorites. This book is not as good, but pretty darn close! I loved it for many reasons ... great character descriptions (I can just see that hateful Rosalie) and very readable. Some classics are hard work to read - worth it, but hard work. Not so with this book. It is, also, quite a window into the dark, dreary existence of some governesses during Victorian times. Sadly, Anne wrote from personal experience. 4.5 stars.
