The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

Book ReviewThe Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky was an okay book.  I am not sure what it was about this book I had a hard time getting into the story.  For some reason this book didn’t grab my attention.  The author did a great job writing this story it just personally wasn’t the story for me.  I think part of the problem is that I have read so many historical fiction books lately that I am just burnt out.  That being said if you love historical fiction make sure you don’t miss this book because it was a sweet story just not the story for me.

The Daughter of Highland HallAbout The Book

The Daughter of Highland Hall || Book 2, Edwardian Brides (Waterbrook Multnomah, October 2014)

What if the title, the estate, the life of security and splendor . . . what if it isn’t enough?

Strong-willed and beautiful, debutante Katherine Ramsey feels ready to take the London social season by storm, and she must. Her family estate, Highland Hall, has been passed to older male cousin Sir William Ramsey, and her only means of securing her future is to make a strong debut and find a proper husband. With her all-knowing and meddling aunt as a guide, Katherine is certain to attract suitors at the lavish gatherings, sparkling with Great Britain’s elite.

When a shocking family scandal sidelines Katherine, forcing her out of the social spotlight, she keeps a low profile, volunteering with the poor in London’s East End. Here Katherine feels free from her predictable future, and even more so as a friendship with medical student Jonathan Foster deepens and her faith in God grows. But when Katherine is courted anew by a man of wealth and position, dreams of the life she always thought she wanted surface again. Torn between tradition and the stirrings in her heart for a different path, she must decide whom she can trust and love—and if she will choose a life serving others over one where she is served.
