Bright, sensible Patience knows what is expected of her. At twenty-five, her opportunity for a family of her own has passed, so she invests herself in teaching at her father’s school for girls. When her father dies suddenly and her brother moves away to London, she is determined to make the school successful.
Confirmed bachelor William Sterling also knows what is expected of him, but mistake after mistake has left him teetering on ruin’s edge. As master of Eastmore Hall he owns a great deal of property — including the land where Rosemere School is located — but possesses little money to manage its upkeep. When debtors start calling, he is desperate to find a new source of income, even if it means sacrificing Rosemere.
When a fire threatens the school grounds, William must decide to what lengths he is willing to go to protect his birthright. And when Patience’s brother returns with a new wife to take over management of the school, Patience suddenly finds herself unsure of her calling. After a surprising truth about William’s past is brought to light, both William and Patience will have to seek God’s plans for their lives-and their hearts.

If you enjoy period novels or movies you will enjoy this book. The Headmistress of Rosemere is the story of a young lady who must run a boarding school after her father dies. Then her brother comes home to take back over after having been gone for quite awhile but many surprises accompany his return such as the fact he is married and he plans on opening a boys part of the school as well and he brought back her old flame to run it.
There is lots of action and mystery in this book, however it was a bit predictable. I had it figured out just barely in to it but I still enjoyed it.
