                The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place
              Book Three: The Unseen Guest

 

Miss Penelope Lumley left her beautiful school, Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females to become a governess at a large estate known as Ashton Place. But when she arrives there, she learns that her new pupils were found in a forest right near the estate being raised by a pack of wolves.
Her challenge begins. Since Penelope's three new pupils have grown up in the forest their whole life with no identity, Penelope suggests that Lord Ashton (the owner of Ashton Place) should name them.
The eldest boy was named Alexander. The second eldest boy, was named Beowulf. And last but not least, Lord Ashton named the youngest, a girl, Cassiopeia.
Penelope taught the children all the things that they would have learned in school; Math, English, Poetry, Latin, and much more. It took her almost a year to teach her pupils these subjects and help them break their habit of howling and chasing animals around. But in the end, her hard work payed off.
Taking place in Victorian England, the third book begins in Ashton Place where Lord Fredrick Ashton's wife, Lady Constance, receives news that Lord Ashton's mother, Widow Ashton is coming to the estate to visit with her villanous boyfriend, a male explorer named Admiral Faucet.
But when they arrive, Admiral Faucet learns that his pet ostrich, Bertha, whom he had brought with him to Ashton Place is missing and must have escaped. Penelope and the children confess that earlier that day they had seen the ostrich wander into the woods. The Admiral decides he must go capture the bird and bring it back to Ashton Place. But when Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia show the Admiral their tracking skills, he insists on bringing them and Miss Lumley (so she can watch he children) on his expedition to find his missing ostrich.
But when their journey begins, Penelope gets worried. What if her three pupils adjust to the forest and want to stay there, and not return back to Ashton Place? What will happen then?
I recommend this book to readers who love reading about a beautiful estate, three wolf raised children, and a very kind governess. But before you read this book, make sure to read the first book: The Mysterious Howling, and the second book: The Hidden Gallery.
