A Waltz with the outspoken Governess

Miss Smith is the oldest girl at her school. She doesn’t fit in, she’s curious about the world, and questions her place within it. Her papa is unwell, and unable to pay further fees for her schooling, Miss Smith, Mary, starts to look for a way to make an income.
Mary finally catches a break, she is offered the role of governess for the nieces and nephews of the respected Sir Nicholas Denny over in his estate in Norfolk.
Mary tries hard not to let her true self show. People have tended not to take to her outspoken ways. But its only so long one can keep up the act. Nicholas very quickly sees through to Mary’s true identity- but it is far from dislike he sees.
I enjoyed reading something set in a time so long ago. It really captures the difference in how a woman would live her life these days, compared to the 1800s.
The descriptions of the fashion they all wore really interested me, and I could visualise such grande scenes.
A great flow to the writing, old fashioned in the best way.
Im glad we are more like Miss Smith these days and say exactly what we want to say and more importantly, be respected for it. Id like to thank Rachel at #rachelsrandomrecourses for my copy #gifted #blogtour
