The Amateur Governess PDF/EPUB ↠ The Amateur eBook


The Amateur Governess A sudden twist of fate left Catherine Wittingham penniless and alone Ignoring the advice of her friends and her own premonitions she took the position of governess in the foreboding Ravensbourne mansionBut the chilling memory of Mary Ravensbourne lurked in every shadow of the ill fated houseAnd Catherine found herself the terrified target of an unspeakable evil The moral of THE AMATEUR GOVERNESS Fathers suck Also smile duck your head align yourself with the twee neglected child let everyone treat you like crap Self actualization isn't necessary; only self sacrifice No worries your HEA will work itself out naturally because a couple rich people feel sorry for how the rest of your friends family social network have treated you Puh lease Even if I never again see anyone described as an AMATEUR GOVERNESS it will be too soon I counted no fewer than 6 dialogue references to said title I get it ok?? She's a governess And she's amateur Yet our AMATEUR GOVERNESS still knows how to do everything like a perfectly perfect Mary Poppins so who cares?This isn't really a gothic romance Rather it was a Regency romance set in the fin de siecle Other than occasional mentions of the Diamond Jubilee this may as well have been 1810 And constantly crapping on your heroine's prospects doesn't make a gothic Just sayin' Good story but I wish there was to the romance side It really came down to the last few pages to see if anything was going to happen I've purchased this book manly because it is about a governess and because of the title The story is a bit dark set in the year of the ueen's Jubilee Catherine and her sister are left penniless once their father passed away Catherine is a strong woman who decides to work as a governess for a little girl who is pretty much ignored in her family The life is of this girl was so similar to Colin's from The Secret Garden The book is a bit gloomy; Catherine's new life is hard and sad She and the girl Amy are practically starving the house is dark and damp; they are alone Catherine's sister is an ungrateful selfish brat The mystery is not really a mystery since we know from around half of the story what is going on Mr Ravensbourne is nice but very irresponsible
