While I was browsing lists upon lists of available books to choose to read, I stumbled upon "The Tutor's Daughter." Not only did the title strike me as appealing but so did the image. While reviewing the summary of what it was about, i just KNEW I had to read it! The moment I was requested the book I downloaded it to my kindle! I quickly realized that working out at the gym goes by much faster when I have a good book to read while I'm on the elliptical!
From the moment I started the book to when I finished it, I was captivated by it all!! Emma Smallwood is a tutor's daughter who owns his own boys school. They were invited to the Weston residence to tutor 2 brothers and since Emma lost her mom, she accompanied her dad as a secondary helper. The 2 Weston brothers, Julian and Rowan, have 2 olders brothers that actually attended the Smallwood academy, Henry and Julian. While staying at the Weston house, Emma experiences harassment, intrigue, learns of family secrets, as well as maybe finds love.
This book is filled with twists and turns as well as portrays the concept of prayer. You find out that one of the Weston brothers fully believes in the power of prayer, and that struck me very hard since I love to pray myself. I found myself sneaking opening this book at work just to read an extra couple pages when I could. At night, I kept telling myself, "only 10 more minutes!" and sometimes I didn't realize how 10 minutes could become 1 hour!
I honestly LOVED this book, and I can't wait to read more books written by this author!! I would recommend this book to anyone, it has such a great story line! This will definitely be on my book shelf the moment it comes out!!
