Today’s featured book is The Folly at Falconbridge Hall by Maggi
Andersen.
Vanessa Ashley felt herself qualified for a position as
governess, until offered the position at Falconbridge Hall. Left penniless
after the deaths of her artist father and suffragette mother, Vanessa draws on
her knowledge of art, politics, and history to gain employment as a governess.
She discovers that Julian, Lord Falconbridge, requires a governess for his
ten-year-old daughter Blyth at Falconbridge Hall, in the countryside outside London. Lord Falconbridge
is a scientist and dedicated lepidopterist who is about to embark on an
extended expedition to the Amazon. An enigmatic man, he takes a keen interest
in his daughter’s education. As she prepares her young charge, Vanessa finds
the girl detached and aloof. As Vanessa learns more about Falconbridge Hall,
more questions arise. Why doesn’t Blythe feel safe in her own home? Why is the
death of her mother, once famed society beauty Clara, never spoken of? And why
did the former governess leave so suddenly without giving notice?
