The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky.\

About the Book:

Book 2 in Edwardian Brides

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

My Review:

5 Stars

I just loved this book, just like the first book in the series! This book picks up where the last one left off and the story just keeps getting better and better. I really enjoy Kate's story and her journey to salvation.

I find this time frame so fun to read because it is so different from how life is now. I enjoyed learning about all the rules of courtship and entering society, wow the pressure those young ladies had. I can't imagine being in those shoes. I really enjoyed seeing how the events played out in the light of scandal in the family and how it changes Kate's life in great ways.

Fans of Edwardian area and even Regency will love this book and the first one. I know I can't wait till next October for the next book to release, A Refugee at Highland Hall. 

* I received this book from Litfuse Publicity for the purpose of this review. Thank You!
