Publisher's Description

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.

    Daughter of Highland Hall picks up where The Governess of Highland Hall left off - London April 1912 ... where Carrie Turansky takes us back in time and describes in great detail what it means to be a young girl coming of age, making her debut into society, and being presented to the Queen and King. Kate's Aunt, Lady Louisa Gatewood, believes she knows what is best for Kate; a marriage proposal by the end of the season but is that really the right plan?

    Ms. Turansky does a wonderful job of describing everything with such detail from the people, how they dress, the homes they lived in, the events they attended, and she captures each character with such depth. She draws us into the story with such ease and makes us feel as if we are really a part of the story that is unfolding.

    Young Kate faces many challenges, decisions, and changes throughout this journey. She interacts with people of standing and those not so high on the society registry. Ms. Turansky does a wonderful job of bringing the spiritual side of life into this story and we are able to watch Kate on her journey of not knowing God to discovering what it means to have faith, follow and trust God's plan for her life over what society believes to be right for her. She learns to seek Him first in all things... including whom to marry, where to live and what to do with her life.

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I received no compensation, nor was I required to write a positive review. All comments are my own.

    What a lovely and complex story!

    This was such a rich and well done novel to follow the Governess first book. The characters develop much more and the story is so interesting.

    I loved the visit to London and the variety of cultures and classes that we visited in the book.

    I can't wait for the future books in the series, and am so glad to know that the characters that we love will be with us for a while. They are beautifully drawn through the stories.

    The Christian aspects of the stories are well woven, so they should be easy to read for someone who is not "religious". As a Christian, I find the points of faith to be inspirational and bright.

    Congratulations, Carrie, on a wonderful new novel!

    Another delightful book by Carrie Turansky!

    This sequel to The Governess of Highland Hall was not disappointing. In fact, I think I liked it even better! Katherine Ramsey is looking forward to the season of her coming out. Her aunt is intent on getting Kate a proposal by the end of the season from a wealthy man, of an important family, with a good standing in London society. After a while, Kate begins to wonder if that is what she really wants. Circumstances that she has no control over, threaten to overwhelm her and ruin her chances of ever finding anyone to marry her. But then again, maybe thats all a part of Gods plan for her life.

    Turansky Triumphs Again in THE DAUGHTER OF HIGHLAND HALL

    Recently I emerged from the last few exquisite hours in Edwardian England thanks to award-winning author Carrie Turanskys newest release, The Daughter of Highland Hall (Book two of the Edwardian Brides series). My, how quickly I arrived at that last page.

    As with Book one, The Governess of Highland Hall, Turansky does a superb job of taking the reader into both the upstairs and downstairs Edwardian world.

    In Book Two, she expands that world to include London and the culture of those who strive to be rightly accepted into society, as well as the squalor and heartache of those on the fringes of that society.



    Eighteen-year-old Katherine Kate Ramsey travels to London with her family to make her auspicious debut into society, as well find the proper husbandif her tyrannical aunt Louisa has anything to say about it. The ward of William Ramsey gave Julia Foster a lot of trouble in book one, but Kates very outspokenness serves her well in this story.

    Kate meets Julias brother, the handsome medical student, Jonathan Foster. Jons initial goal to complete his medical training to return to his fathers work in India, has alteredand not because of the lovely Kate. He discovers the needs of those on the fringes of society and questions abandoning them for the mission field outside his beloved England.

    A family scandal within the Ramsey family demonstrates a flaw in the perfect society Kate has trusted. She searches for answers to her questions about right and wrongand not merely what appears right or wrong. What she discovers is life changing for her, Jon, and others around her.

    If you are a fan of Downton Abbey, you will love Turanskys Edwardian Bride series, with its gentle integration of Biblical values.

    Carrie has skillfully depicted the juxtaposition between precision protocol and propriety, and the heart of humanity in Gods eyes. Her ability to capture the authenticity of this period with well-developed characters and plot has gifted readers with an experience, not just entertainment.

    I received a complimentary copy of this publication from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    An Engaging, Endearing Read!!!

    High expectations. Attention to detail. Endless preparation. Constant scrutiny. Such was the life of an aspiring young debutante in Edwardian era England.

    When eighteen-year-old Katherine Ramsey arrives in London on the brink of her debut into polite society, she does her best to follow directions, listen to advice, wear the right clothes and behave properly; especially in front of her ever-demanding aunt; Lady Louisa Gatewood, her societal sponsor; determined to place Katherine in the position to be married off to a family with title, prestige and exorbitant wealth. And it appears that her plan is working when Katherine catches the eye of the well positioned Edward Wellington.

    Jon Foster is a young medical student with a heart for the oppressed. As he nears the completion of his formal medical training, he must decide whether or not he will return to medical missions in India, where his family served for years, or find a place in London where he can practice medicine while continuing to donate his time to the Daystar Clinic, offering free medical attention to London's poverty-riddled East End. Jon's sister, Julia Foster, is engaged to be married to William Ramsey; Katherine Ramsey's cousin and legal guardian.

    Jon and Katherine meet when Jon is invited to live at Ramsey House during the final months of his medical training. Their almost-instant affinity grows into an endearing friendship, especially as Katherine begins to probe her own heart regarding her motives for the future and family scandal threatens to unravel all of Aunt Louisa's plans for Katherine's debut. But will the pull of family expectations destroy Katherine's young faith? And will Jon's trepidation over putting Katherine in harm's way override his plans for the future?

    This is a book written by an author quite comfortable with her characters and their story. While being a light, easy, endearing read, "The Daughter of Highland Hall" carries quite a "punch"; its readers will have to search their own hearts to determine where they stand on "heavyweight" issues such as missions to the poor, determining God's will, difficult family relationships, and the lure of worldly impressions; among others. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and am grateful to the author for providing me with an advance copy in return for my honest review.
