What a gem of a book! The author has a total mastery of the details of the turn-of-the-century time period, and the book is rich with detail and historically plausible in a way many period romances are not. This is a ‘Jane Eyre’-type romance that grows between the master and the governess, but I love that it’s a slow-burn, not immediate sparks, which seems to me much more true to life. I love that the action spans both England and Peru, which I wasn’t expecting, but was so bold and fascinating!
