“The Daughter of Highland Hall” by Carrie Turansky, book review, Edwardian Brides #2
Katherine has waited her whole life for her season, the time that she would be presented to the London socialites including the Kind and Queen. Due to the untimely death of her parents, her aunt promised her mother on her death bed that she would see Katherine through the season. And it is well underway, following the dress fittings, dance and etiquette lessons, it is finally time.
Then a series of untimely family scandals seem to force her out of the spot light. She is actually shunned by society and especially one family whose son she had her eye on, as a suitable suitor. Since she has so much time on her hands, she accompanies her future brother-in-law as he volunteers at a medical center in the poor East End. Katherine finds that she is well suited for the work and is actually making a difference in some folks’ lives. But then an attack brings the danger of her new venture. But through out this whole time, she is learning to trust God and His wisdom in her future.
I enjoyed this book. It is the second in the Edwardian Brides series, so some of the characters are familiar. The story line was easy to follow and the characters were well developed. The story moved along well and I wanted to keep reading! I will look forward to #3 to be released October 2015.
