When young Miss Lumley is hired as a governess for three children who were raised by wolves, things get out of hand. There is a bit of a mystery, since we do not know who the children’s real parents are and just who is trying to sabotage Miss Lumley’s efforts. The only drawback is the text is similar to that of Jane Eyre and takes a little effort at first. Maybe the sequel will answer some questions. A worthwhile, fast read, with English overtones.
