Daughter of Highland Hall
I'll admit I have not read the first story in the "Edwardian Brides" series (this is the second), but I don't feel as if anything was over my head. Several times the past was mentioned and I could clearly form what had taken place in the previous story. So if you can't secure a copy of "The Governess of Highland Hall" don't fret, you can still enjoy this one without missing out on any of the story!
This story follows strong willed Kate. It's her debut season in London and she must make a good impression. If she doesn't secure a wealthy husband she will have no hopes for her future, since her inheritance was given to a cousin. She starts the season excitedly reveling in the beautiful clothes, the parties, the men. But soon she starts to feel that it may not be enough. Is she only looking for a wealthy man so she can belong in society? Could she find true meaningful love, and compatible faith with someone not in her social class? After a scandal shames her family name, she decides to spend her time doing good works and helping in a local free clinic. For once she has purpose and her heart is lighter. Could she learn to live with this? Would it be enough?
Obviously their is plenty of romance, but their is also faith, scandal, and historical details that may bring new readers to inspirational fiction. Another splendid work by Carrie Turansky.
I received this book for free from Litfuse Publicity in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.
