I received a copy for review and all opinions are my own. Hey! I have another great book to share with you this week. I really love reading and so when I find a book that I love, I want to share it with you. The latest one I just finished is The Truth About Miss Ashbourne by Joanna Barker. This book is about Juliana, who is working as a governess. Her life changes dramatically when she inherits from her late Grandfather and may be able to finally accomplish her goal of opening a school for girls.
Everything is changed when she finds out she has to visit her extended family at the estate of Havenfield for a month and spend time with the people who changed her life early on and not for the better. As she struggles with finding her place in the family, she develops an unexpected connection with Mr. William Rowley who becomes more than a friend. Over the course of the story, she finally is able to come to an understanding with those who wronged her, to those she loves and is able to make her way in her new life.
About The Truth About Miss Ashbourne:
Governess Juliana Ashbourne has dreams reaching far beyond the confines of her current position, hoping to someday establish her own school for girls. When she inherits a fortune from her late grandfather, she is shocked to learn that “someday” may soon be within reach. However, there is one condition: she must spend a month at the estate of Havenfield—with the very family who disowned her mother. Intent on securing the money she needs to start her school, Juliana accepts the invitation, vowing to guard her heart against those who shunned her all her life.
But Havenfield is far from what she expects. She discovers a grandmother seeking forgiveness, a cold and disapproving aunt, and a painfully shy cousin. And then there is Mr. William Rowley. Though the heir to the estate is a merciless tease, Juliana finds in him a friend and confidant—and perhaps something more. As she struggles to make sense of her new place in the world, her stubborn independence clashes with a yearning to belong and the even more confusing desires of her heart.
