The Governess of Penwythe Hall Book 1 Synopsis
(The Cornwall Novels) The opening scenes in this book are in Cornwall (1808) and Cordelia (Delia) Greythorne is leaving her home. Recently widowed, her husband's family not only blames her for his death, but believes she knows more than she is telling. Her mother-in-law follows her to the carriage and hurls final insults at Delia. The Greythorne family has many secrets, all of which Delia knows, and that makes her a threat to them. They want her gone and perhaps would kill her if she didn't have valuable information they needed.
While not as wealthy as his brother, Jac Twethewey owns Penwythe Hall, which was actually the reason for the breach between brothers. As the oldest brother, Randall expected to inherent Penwythe Hall, but their benefactor left it to Jac instead. Randall believed Jac had cheated him out of his proper inheritance. Once you get to know Jac, you know he didn't cheat anyone out of anything. Their Uncle Angrove simply believed Jac would be a better overseer of Penwythe Hall and left it to him.
