really liked it
bookshelves: 2010-50-a-year, victorians, classics
Read from January 30 to February 06, 2010

I felt true empathy with the protagonists as she experienced the frustration of trying to educate difficult uncooperative children with no support from the children's parents. I also felt Agnes's painful isolation as she tried to help her family by taking a governess job away. The plot was very simple but enjoyable.

Lainey Agnes is one of the lesser known Brontes. I read this in 2007. For me, it started out real good, then halfway through it got a bit wordy.

Sheila I am a little more than halfway through this book. The frustrations Agnes has with her students is very pertinent to educators of today. It is a very validating read so far.
