The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen is another stellar addition to the author's works. Olivia Keene fled her home after her attempt to rescue her mother left a man unconscious and bleeding. While looking for a safe place to hide, she is arrested for trespassing at Brightwell Court. Lord Bradley has his reasons for not prosecuting Olivia's law-breaking, and when she is struck mute after another accident, both Olivia and Lord Bradley are pleased that she can't speak about who she is or what she's seen. Klassen is a fresh voice in historical Christian fiction. Her stories are never cliched, characters never stereotypes, and her faith never used as a weapon. Her writing sucks me in so completely that I often have to give myself a good shake to bring myself back to the real world. Klassen is the rare author whose books I want to pass out to everyone I know.
