This is another author recommended by a friend thanks A. As the blurb says Miss Amelia Belchamber finds herself completely penniless and homeless after the death of her father. She has been very well-educated in a time when not many women were, and so finding a position as a governess seems to be her best option. She is very fortunate to be employed by Mr Staneley Hoggett who is a very nice man, and a very shrewd one.

As I said, a shrewd man. Mrs Hoggett is expecting the imminent arrival of the latest addition to the household and Amelia is summoned only occasionally, although there is a steady stream of missives from Mrs Hoggett to Amelia, all of them critical.

The two older boys, Staneley and Frederick are sent away to boarding school, and after three months, Amelia has more or less won the battle in the schoolroom. Louisa, the eldest daughter, initially hostile, has become devoted. Alice, the next in age, got off to a very bad start with the governess, but has mellowed somewhat, while the two younger girls, Jane, and Amy, have liked Amelia from the outset. Albert, the cripple, is a hater, but considering how he has grown up, perhaps it is not surprising.

The Belchamber Scandal

This book is very well-written, the pacing is good and the story flows effortlessly. I am unsure in what era this story is set, maybe Victorian, but it is hard to pinpoint. There is a vein of humour running through the story that had me smiling a lot, and I enjoyed this book so much, I will be trying another from this author, with the hope it will be of the same high quality as this one.

Interesting historical romance of a young woman making her way in the world. Our heroine, Amelia, is having a very bad year. Her embezzling, debt ridden father is a suicide. She has honorably released her absent fiance from their engagement. She is employed as governess to the children of the Hoggetts, the ultimate "Trade" family from hell.

What else could go wrong? Mr Hoggett is travelling in support of his business interests. The Hoggett's lascivious tutor is interrupted when attacking Amelia, by his jealous paramour, the second Mrs Hoggett. She finds scandalous employment as a housekeeper to a maritally separated, not quite bachelor, artist.

Meanwhile, Mrs Hoggett makes a false accusation that Amelia has stolen the household fund. Amelia is arrested and transported to jail to await trial. Good charaterizations, frightening plot twists and a solid romance adds to the entertainment. But Amelia had not counted on a family quite as trying as the Hoggetts. Amelia's troubles begin when Mr. Hoggett, a manufacturer of cottons and canvases, leaves her alone to cope with no less than eight wayward offspring, unsupported in any way by the weak and foolish Mrs.

To make matters worse, she becomes the amorous object of the odious tutor, Mr. And yet the final blow comes when Amelia finds herself the innocent victim of a total miscarriage of justice. Mrs Hoggett is expecting the imminent arrival of the latest addition to the household and Amelia is summoned only occasionally, although there is a steady stream of missives from Mrs Hoggett to Amelia, all of them critical.
