All That Glitters

Linda Bennett Pennell

Becoming governess to a difficult child in a robber baron’s eerie mansion is not the life Sarah Anne had envisioned. But as her understanding of the family grows, she realizes there may be reasons for the girl’s troubling behavior. Something is not right within Ripon House. Is her student unbalanced or is the family hiding a dark secret?

Becoming governess to a difficult child in a robber baron’s eerie mansion on the Georgia coast is not the life Sarah Anne had envisioned. The cultural clashes between her rural southern upbringing and that of the wealthy northern family send her reeling, but she is determined to be a success. She needs this job for all other doors have closed. Complicating her position are two young men of the family who vie for her attention, engendering emotions that she fights but cannot quell.

With patience and kindness, Sarah Anne breaks through the emotional wall with which her student has surrounded herself. But as her understanding of the family dynamic grows, Sarah Anne comes to realize there may be very good reasons for the child’s troubling behavior. Something is not right within Ripon House. Is the child mentally unbalanced as the father claims or is the family determined to protect a sinister secret no matter the cost?
