The Governess Club: Sara by Ellie Macdonald Review

Sweet Sara Collins is one of the founding members of the Governess Club. But she has a secret: She doesn't love teaching. She'd much prefer to be a vicar's wife and help the local community. But this quiet mouse doesn't want to upset her friends, and she resolves to help in whatever ways she can.

Nathan Grant is the embodiment of everything that frightens Sara. Which is why she can't understand why the handsome but reclusive and gruff man is so fascinating to her. When Sara decides it's time to take a chance and experience all that life has to offer, Nathan is the first person she thinks of.

Will Sara's walk on the wild side ruin her chances at a simple, happy life? Or has she just opened the door to a once-in-a-lifetime chance at passion?  

This book is sweet and beautiful and in parts heartbreaking.
Let’s start with the basics shall we. The book was well written and at times made my knees ache in sympathy (you will understand when you read the book.
I find Sara’s character a little annoying at first with her meekness, but I soon begin to understand her after her background was explained. Nathans character on the other hand I loved from the first moment he was rude to the Vicar! And his character just gets better the more we get to know him. Charles on the other I found annoying from the get go! Then we get to my favorite character Louisa, who is as forthright as every and tells everyone exactly what she thinks with no tack! I love her :-)
I give Sara a very solid and well deserved 9 out of 10.
