Agnes Grey (Free AudioBook Link)
by Anne Bronte
Agnes Grey is the daughter of a minister of modest means. Determined to earn money to care for herself, she takes one of the few jobs allowed to respectable women in the early Victorian era, as a governess to the children of the wealthy. In working with two different families, the Bloomfields and the Murrays, she comes to learn about the troubles that face a young woman who must try to rein in unruly, spoiled children for a living, and about the ability of wealth and status to destroy social values. After her father's death Agnes opens a small school with her mother and finds happiness and marries Edward Weston, who loves her for herself.
