    I've read all three novels in Carrie Turansky's Edwardian Bride series, and once again the author succeeds in delivering a compelling and inspiring tale set in England near the turn of the twentieth century. Her words bring life to the pages, with memorable characters, sumptuous scenes, and heart-wrenching conflict as a lovely young debutante must decide the course of her life amidst the glitter and grandeur of a first London Season. Must she choose, or can she have it all? As I stayed up late reading to the last page to find out, my spirits were lifted at the reminder of God's unconditional love for us all and His offer of wisdom and guidance to those who seek Him through prayer. The Daughter of Highland Hall is a lovely story that will linger in my mind and heart for some time. I look forward to reading more from Carrie Turansky!

    Daughter of Highland Hall is the second book in the Edwardian Brides Series although you could read this as a stand alone.

    Kate Ramsey has nothing on her mind except finding a rich husband in her first season in society. With her debut just days away, her family has invited Jonathan Foster stay with them and in spending time with Jonathan, Kate realizes, much to her Aunt's dismay, that there is much more to life than a rich husband and polite society.

    Jonathan Foster is about to finish his medical training to become a missionary doctor, but as the time draws near, he finds that the path that he always believed he would take is now not so clear, especially after meeting the lovely Kate Ramsey. and wrestling with what God about He wants him to do.

    Kate was easily my favorite character, she goes from being a whiney, self-centered girl into a spirited young woman who begins to understand and believe who God says He is and feels His pull on her life to move in a different direction then what people expect especially in the face of great opposition.

    Jon and Kate made a delightful couple. They worked well together and had wonderful chemistry that was natural and flowed easily. I could easily picture them as a real couple.

    The other relationship worth noting is Lydia and Kates. Lydia, being Kates ladies maid and although they each knew their boundaries within society, in private they became good friends, even to the point that Lydia shares her concerns and fears about her missing sister and Kate agrees to help as much as she can. Lydia is also a great woman of faith and is able to have conversations and answer questions that Kate has about God.

    I thought that this was an exceptional book, well researched for historical settings and behavior. It was a character driven book and those characters were well written and well defined.

    I give this a 4.5 star and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves historical fiction.

    Miss Katherine Ramsey is in London for her first Season, and her aunt and sponsor has high hopes that shell make a brilliant marriage. But the longer Kate spends moving in the right circles, the more she questions the way things are doneparticularly the emphasis on marrying for position rather than affection, let alone marrying for love.

    I didnt like Katherine at firstshe seemed stupid and immature, but I suspect that was exactly the point. She was young, and she had led a sheltered life, and she had never had cause to question the standards shed been raised with. And while we can laugh at the shallowness of society in Edwardian London, we only have to watch a few minutes of reality television to see those same standards are alive and well in modern America and other countries.

    Jonathan Foster is training to be a doctor so he can return to India, where he was raised as the child of missionaries. But his calling doesnt seem as clear any moreLondon is also teeming with sick people too poor to afford a doctor. And London has the beautiful Miss Ramsey, who Jon is attracted to despite her lack of faith.

    This highlights one of the things I liked best about The Daughter of Highland Hall: the genuine faith of the Foster family and William Ramsey (Kates guardian). Youd think Christian fiction would be full of characters (Christian or not) wrestling with aspects of their faith, but that is rarely the case. The Daughter of Highland Hall is a welcome exception, and while the first half of the story was somewhat slow, the second half more than made up for it, as we watched characters grow in their faith and share it with others. I especially liked this speech from Lydia, Kates ladys maid:

    He knows what happened, and it breaks His heart. But all you need to do is confess it to Him and ask forgiveness. That wipes the slate clean.

    She goes on to talk about how our circumstances dont necessarily change when we become Christianswe still have the same baggage as before, the same results of our sinbut Jesus will carry that for us. Its a welcome message of redemption and grace, and while I dont want to go back to a time when every Christian novel had a preachy come-to-Jesus moment, its good to see novels where such scenes flow naturally out of the story.

    The Daughter of Highland Hall is the sequel to The Governess of Highland Hall, but can easily be read as a standalone novel (its so long since I read the first that I cant remember any of the details). But there were similarities in both stories: both had a bit of an Upstairs Downstairs or Downton Abbey feel, in that while the main plot was about the gentry, several significant characters were middle or working class.

    I enjoyed The Governess of Highland Hall, and I had been apprehensive about reading The Daughter of Highland Hall (which is why its taken me so long!). But I was pleased to find this was as good as the first in the series. Now to find the third . . .

    Thanks to WaterBrook Multnomah for providing a free ebook for review.

    The Daughter of Highland Hall, Edwardian Brides book 2****

    by Carrie Turansky

    Eighteen year old Katherine (Kate) Ramsey is making her debut in London society, in hopes of attracting a suitable husband. Her overbearing aunt, Lady Louisa Gatewood, is sponsoring her and has high hopes for Katherine. Kate soon finds she has two suitors and must decide which young man would best meet her needs. But will she follow her aunt's advice and marry for money and prestige or will she follow her heart and marry for love?

    Suitor Jon Foster is a medical student and is the brother to Julia Foster, now married to Sir William Ramsey. Jon has decisions to make of his own, whether to return to India after medical school and continue the ministry his parents, sister and he were committed to. Or does God have other plans for him here in London? I enjoyed getting to know Jon a little more, seeing into his heart and his strong faith.

    Suitor Edward Wellington is from a wealthy family and his parents hope he meets a suitable bride during the London season. A bride worthy of the Wellington name and fortune. But what of Edward, what does he want for a bride? Will he follow his parents wishes despite how he feels or will he follow his heart even if it divides the family?

    In book one of this series Kate was bratty and demanding, I didn't like her very much. In this second book we see Kate has begun to grow up and loose some of her former behavior. As she seeks her way during her London season, she begins to see how her life would be if she followed her aunt's overbearing guidance. She also sees possibly a different path she could take if she is brave enough to go against her aunt. I liked seeing Kate grow, not only in maturity, but in her faith and began seeking and allowing God to guide her in her life choices. I enjoyed how spiritual growth and the way God works in the characters lives are clearly shown in the story. There are subplots and secondary characters that reveal some surprising developments and shocking actions that are unsettling to the families. I am looking forward to read book 3, A Refuge of Highland Hall, in October this year.

    Well done sequel!

    The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky is the second book in the Edwardian Brides series. I really enjoyed this sequel! It was as good as the first one, and I'm looking forward to the next book. Plus, I liked still hearing about the characters from The Governess from Highland Hall.

    Katherine Ramsey is coming out into society sponsored by her overbearing aunt. Determined to be a success so she can snag a man of good social standing, Katherine finds that it is much harder to navigate the murky waters of society than she previously thought. From the beginning, everything went wrong, and it only went downhill from there. Will she be able to get any husband after her family's name has been tarnished? Discouraged and confused, Katherine learns to rely on God like never before.

    Jonathan Foster has come to stay at Sir William Ramsey's house while they are in London for the season. Attracted to Katherine's strength, humor, and honesty, he enjoys being able to socialize with her. But when he realizes he wants to be more than friends, Jonathan takes a step back to think and pray. Is she really saved, or is she a Christian in name only? And what of her desire to marry for social standing?

    Katherine wanted to have a great debut in society because it was expected, but when she realized the truth of her ambitions, she wasn't so sure that was what she wanted for her life. Being with Jonathan opened her eyes to the other side of the coin. While helping him at the free clinic, she came face to face to the reality of thousands of people in London especially the children. When her desires changed, she found true freedom for the first time in her life.

    If you like historical fiction set in Britain, you will like this series. I don't normally see books written in the early 1900s in England so it was a nice change from the Regency I normally read. I wish more authors would write from the normal average people in that time period, though. Not every rich persons marries someone poor or vice versa.

    I was given this book free from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
