  • The Governess of Penwythe Hall # ARC Review



    Cornwall was in her blood, and Delia feared she’d never escape its hold.
    Cornwall, England, 1811
    Blamed for her husband’s death, Cordelia Greythorne fled Cornwall and accepted a governess position to begin a new life. Years later her employer’s unexpected death and his last request for her to watch over his five children force her to reevaluate. She can’t abandon the children now that they’ve lost both parents, but their new guardian lives at the timeworn Penwythe Hall . . . back on the Cornish coast she’s tried desperately to forget.
    Jac Twethewey is determined to revive Penwythe Hall’s once-flourishing apple orchards, and he’ll stop at nothing to see his struggling estate profitable again. He hasn’t heard from his brother in years, so when his nieces, nephews, and their governess arrive unannounced, he battles both grief at his brother’s death and bewilderment over this sudden responsibility. Jac’s priorities shift as the children take up residence in the ancient halls, but their secretive governess—and the mystery shrouding her past—proves to be a disruption to his carefully laid plans.
    Rich with family secrets, lingering danger, and the captivating allure of new love, this first book in the Cornwall series introduces us to the Twethewey family and their search for peace, justice, and love on the Cornish coast.

    Review
    " All will work together for good."

    Those who know me know how passionate I am of Historical Romances and when I saw that It was a Christian book, I was curious to read it. What a satisfying surprise!
    The book tells the story of Delia and Jac, two strong and loyal people who  known each other thanks to five siblings who become orphans and are under the care of Delia and the guardianship of Jac, their uncle.
    Jac is bravely trying to make his orchids and apple plantations successful and is experiencing some financial hardship to find that he will need to take care of his nephews and nieces, but he is not intimidated by the challenge of approaching five bereaved children whom he does not know well. This coexistence ends up creating bonds between these suffered characters.
    The plot revolves around the trust that everyone will need to have in each other to form a united family and still has the mystery that revolves around Delia's past.
    I liked the author's writing very much and I became a fan, she can hold the reader from beginning to end and  knows how to create moments of tension, sweetness and romance plus a good mystery.
    I loved Sophy so much and her sweetness, all the posture and characterization of the characters and I found the end so so so beautiful.
    5/5 stars

    Resenha
    Quem me conhece sabe como sou apaixonada por Historical Romances e quando vi que esse era cristão fiquei curiosa para ler. Que gratificante surpresa.
    O livro conta a história de Delia e Jac, duas pessoas fortes e leais que se conhecem graças a cinco irmãos que ficam órfãos e ficam sob os cuidados de Delia e a tutela de Jac, tio delas.
    Jac está tentando bravamente fazer dar certo suas plantações de orquídeas e maçãs e está passando por algumas dificuldades financeiras ao descobrir que precisará cuidar dos sobrinhos fica preocupado mas não se intimida com o desafio de se aproximar de cinco crianças enlutadas e que nem conhece direito. Essa convivência acaba criando laços entre esses personagens sofridos.
    A trama gira em torno da confiança que todos precisarão ter uns nos outros para formar uma família unida e ainda conta com o mistério que gira em torno do passado de Delia.
    Gostei demais da escrita da autora e já virei fã, ela consegue prender o leitor do início ao fim. Ela sabe como criar momentos de tensão, doçura e romance além de um bom mistério. 
    Amei demais Sophy e sua doçura, toda a postura e caracterização dos personagens e achei lindo o fim.
