Waiting On Wednesday: The Governess of Penwythe Hall

December 26, 2018

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature that spotlights an up-and-coming release you are most excited about.

It is crazy think about, but next week at this time, we will be in 2019!
One day closer to so many pretty new releases!

This week I decided to spotlight an up-and-coming April release. Each season has a perfect type of read. Summer is great for contemporary, winter is great for historical, and springs are fantastic for rich Edwardian style novels. 

Sarah E. Ladd's newest release will be out in perfect timing. Her new sounds like it will have a mix of everything! Mystery, suspense, and also her fabulous story telling and character development. 

Waiting On:
Title: The Governess of Penwythe Hall
Author: Sarah E. Ladd
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Publication Date: April 16th, 2019

About the Book:
Cornwall, England, 1811
Blamed for her husband’s death, Cordelia Greythorne fled Cornwall and accepted a governess position to begin a new life. Years later her employer’s unexpected death and his last request to watch over his five children force her to reevaluate. She can’t abandon the children now that they’ve lost both parents, but their new guardian lives at the timeworn Penwythe Hall . . . back on the Cornish coast she tries desperately to forget.

Jac Trethewey is determined to revive Penwythe Hall’s once-flourishing apple orchards, and he’ll stop at nothing to see his struggling estate profitable again. He hasn’t heard from his brother in years, so when his nieces, nephews, and their governess arrive unannounced at Penwythe Hall, he battles both grief of this brother’s death and bewilderment over this sudden responsibility. Jac’s priorities shift as the children take up residence in the ancient halls, but their secretive governess—and the mystery shrouding her past—proves to be a disruption to his carefully laid plans.

Rich with family secrets, lingering danger, and the captivating allure of new love, this first book in the Cornwall Novels series introduces us to the Twethewey family and their search for peace, justice, and love on the Cornish coast.

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. Just the cover of that shouts springtime! I'm not thinking that far ahead (okay, I do have a pre-order in for June already) but I'm looking forward to The Wicked King out in two weeks. 2019 is going to be a great year for reading!


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
