Overall it was a pleasant read, although I admit it didn't meet my expectations in full.
Graham has scammed his way into a tutoring job at a manor house, and he can tell that something is “off” from the moment he arrives. His two pupils, twin boys, run wild, and one of them doesn’t speak anymore.
Graham certainly has his work cut out for himself, and then there’s the issue of the enigmatic Sir Richard, the boy’s father, who is haunted by the past and reluctant to let anyone get close to him, especially not another man.
And what would a good gothic romance be without a ghost?
This book was moody and atmospheric, and the sense of dread built slowly as the story progressed. There were plenty of secrets; in addition to the secrets regarding the family’s descent into gloom, there’s Graham’s own secret, of course: he has lied to gain this position. He’s out of his depth, but determined to help the family find peace.
The narrative unfolds from Graham’s single perspective, which helps maintain the mystery about Richard. The reader doesn’t know what he is thinking, just as Graham doesn’t know. This places the reader on the same level, there’s no omniscience on our part; we’re left wondering about Richard’s motivations until the moment that Graham discovers them.
I would recommend The Tutor. This was the first of Dee’s books that I’ve read, but I’m looking forward to reading more in the future.
The attraction simmers between Graham and his employer, the formidable and aloof Richard Allinson, and seems out of reach due to the times and the environment but there comes a breaking point. It was worth the wait. If you love dark gothic tales that involve ghostly thrills and things that go bump in the night, I highly recommend this book.
Way to go! I hope to read more from Bonnie Dee!
