review 1: lovely story about well read young lady who survives difficulties in Regency era. The father runs a boarding school and academy for young boys and she grew up as her teaching assistant. As they face dire economic circumstances, the father takes an offer to tutor two young boys ...
The Silent Governess (2010)

English
4.02 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: (by the way, I don't know why I requested this book from the library. I don't usually read fiction.)The author did a good job with the plot of this book! It was a 'safe' novel. But I didn't think the Christian faith theme was a crucial part of the book. The end was pretty good- f...

review 1: The Foster family is reeling from financial ruin, trying to preserve a sophisticated appearance and stay off the streets at the same time. Deliverance will come- as usual- from an unexpected place. A solicitor arrives and invites the Fosters to move into a manor. They are not inh...
The Maid of Fairbourne Hall (2012)
language
English
4.08 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I enjoyed this book. Most of it takes place among servants of a grand estate when an upper class woman goes into hiding and takes a job as a house maid. She has grown up pampered and suddenly has to learn to do all the menial tasks that were once done for her. Her transformation ...
The Girl in the Gatehouse (2011)
language
English
3.84 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I thought I'd give this author a try because of her reputation for clean regency romance. While the story was a clean romance, it wasn't anything great. If I had to choose one word to describe the book it would be "fine". It was fine for a quick read but not good. Certainly not s...
De juffrouw uit Devonshire (2000)
language
English
4.08 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Personally, I don't think Julia Klassen can be rated anywhere near Austen or the Bronte's sisters. Her themes and story settings may be a bit similar (like about a gazillion other regency romances...), but her writing style is much much less complex, as are her characters. Nevert...
Die Tochter des Hauslehrers (2013)
language
English
4.08 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I enjoyed reading this book. There were, however, a couple things that kept me from giving it a higher rating. First, it as vert predictable. You knew who she was going to end up with on page 10. There was a but of mystery and secrecy in the book. I like mystery in a book, but I ...
The Dancing Master (2014)
language
English

review 1: I enjoyed reading a regency period piece from a dancing masters point of view. It was an interesting look at the time period - different from most other regency books I've read. My favorite thing about this book was that each character was given multiple dimensions. Specifically,...
De stille gouvernante (2011)
language
English
4.02 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This book grabbed my attention from the first chapter and held it through the last. I started on Saturday and finished on Sunday! Filled with much more suspense than I expected, the story of Olivia Keene won't soon be forgotten! Julie Klassen's research into the challenges of a g...

language
English
4.09 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Loved the book. As always, Julie Klassen introduces interesting, likable characters and allows the reader to grow along with them as the story and plot progresses. Her stories always entertain and I'm always sorry to see the story end. I would recommend any books by this autho...
De jongedame in het poorthuis (2012)
language
English
3.84 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I was desperate for an audio book for my car when I picked this book up at the library. I did not know it was Christian fiction until I looked it up later on and I almost returned it without listening. I didn't because in the past I have read a Christian fiction book or two that ...
Das Mädchen im Torhaus (2012)
language
English
3.84 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This book kept me guessing all the way. It starts off with immediate action, with the heroine leaving her parents' home for exile with her former nurse. She is under disgrace for her actions while at a house party (we aren't told details until later in the story). It had the f...

language
English

review 1: This went at a slower pace for me than Klassen's other books I've read (The Silent Governess and The Maid of Fairbourne Hall). This doesn't mean it was not good (because it was!) I just did not gobble it up as fast.The storyline was interesting and I kept guessing what the secret...
