Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte

Most of us enjoyed the social history of the book, which was depicted in Agnes’ life as a governess. This was a lonely existence as a governess was neither a servant nor a member of the family.
Much of this knowledge was from Anne’s personal experience.

Some of the archaic phrases were interesting. Fortunately there were some definitions at the end of the book.

Our average score was 7/10.
