I stayed up late into the night following the tightly woven mystery of Julie Klassen’s, The Tutor’s Daughter. If you love historical fiction with a clever twist of intrigue this is the book for you! Bookish Emma Smallwood steps out of a hired coach and into the secrets of a nineteenth century cliff top manor on the windswept coast of Cornwall. Something is happening at Ebbington manor—from the creaking of floorboards in her darkened bedroom, the haunting music played only at night, to the distant cry of voices in the supposed empty north wing and Emma must uncover the mystery before harmless pranks turn deadly. Walking with a lone candle through the twisting halls of the ancient manor Emma encounters more than just the glaring eyes of Weston ancestors. With my comforter tucked securely under my chin I gingerly followed Emma into the mystery surrounding Ebbington Manor and enjoyed every minute of it. Klassen writes an excellent mystery and it satisfies to the very last page!
