The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood

Penelope has managed to get a job as a governess at the fabulous Ashton house but is surprised when she arrives and no one will tell her about the children she will be teaching. When she hears howling from the barn she discovers three wild children who were discovered in the woods when Mr. Ashton was hunting. Penelope has a soft spot in her heart for animals and is not daunted by the challenge of raising the three children. She is dismayed by the attitude of the Ashtons, however. Mrs. Ashton wants nothing to do with the children regardless of how much they learn or how civilized they become. And Mr. Ashton is an avid hunter who seems to have something frightening in mind...
