內容簡介 Surrounded by mountains, valleys, and forests, Ashliegh, England is a picturesque village, and seemingly the perfect place to live. However, still mourning the death of her father and navigating the sometimes-suffocating love of her mother, Amy Neville longs for a change of scenery. After being encouraged and supported by a family friend, Mrs. Elrington, Amy is finally given an opportunity to grow when she is offered a governess position for a family in another village. When she is finally able to convince her mother to allow her to move away, Amy is excited and nervous to start her journey into her professional life. However, the Linchmore family is hardly inclined to make anything easier for her. Tasked with caring for and educating children that want nothing to do with her, Amy struggles to be a positive influence in the children's life. Meanwhile, Amy must attempt to keep the peace between she and Mrs. Linchmore after getting caught in the middle of drama nearly a decade in the making between Mrs. Linchmore and Mrs. Elrington.
