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.

"From Londons East End to the royal presentation court, Carrie Turansky pulls back the curtain on Edwardian England in this sweeping new drama. The Daughter of Highland Hall will delight romance fans as well as those who like a peek behind the scenes into the lives of the elite and the people who serve them. A delight from the first page to the last."
Carla Stewart, award-winning author of Stardust and The Hatmakers Heart
"Giving vivid entry into an Edwardian England setting, from genteel ballrooms to the gritty streets of Londons East End, author Carrie Turansky has created a cast of multilayered, delightfully written characters I found engaging from beginning to end. The Daughter of Highland Hall is at its heart a story of personal courage, one sure to please fans of Turanskys The Governess of Highland Hall, as well as readers coming fresh to the series with this book."
Lori Benton, author of Burning Sky and The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn
"From first line to last, The Daughter of Highland Hall is a sumptuous Edwardian feast, brimming with romance, history, and spiritual truths. Society and its glitter fade away as what truly matters comes into play. A delightful addition to the Edwardian Brides series!"
Laura Frantz, author of Loves Fortune
"The Daughter of Highland Hall sweeps readers back to historic London where a cast of endearing characters work toward a heart-stirring cause. With excitement happening both upstairs and down, this charming romance is a beautiful addition to Carrie Turanskys Edwardian Brides series and a reminder that the greatest joys can arrive in the unlikeliest of ways."
Joanne Bischof, award-winning author of the Cadence of Grace series
"A debutante. A medical missionary. Two disparate worlds. The Daughter of Highland Hall celebrates Gods ability to open eyes and soften hearts."
Mona Hodgson, author of nearly forty books for adults and children, including the Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series, the Quilted Heart novellas, and Prairie Song
"The Daughter of Highland Hall is a compelling Edwardian love story that crosses class divides, where characters learn that snagging a titled and wealthy spouse is not the first concern of life. Carrie Turanskys meticulously researched and beautifully written novel lifts the heart, drawing the reader closer to Christ and reminding her of the possibilities of a faithdriven marriage. Characters that inspire readers to rekindle their romance with the Lord of life as well as with their own husband… How many books can do that?"

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm the author of more than a dozen inspirational romance novelas and novellas and the winner of The ACFW Carol Award, The International Digital Award, and the Crystal Globe Award. Readers often say my books are heartwarming, faith-filled, and family centered, and I appreciate that. When I'm not writing I like to work in my flower gardens, spend time with my family, arrange flowers for special events. I've taken two wonderful research trips to England so I could give my stories an authentic feel.
What was your motivation behind this project? This is book 2 in the Edwardian Brides Series, and it continues the story of the Ramsey family as they travel to London for Kate's first season as a debutante. I wanted to explore what life was like for young aristocratic women who were coming of age and moving toward marriage in the Edwardian time period.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope readers will feel as though they've been carried away to England and transported back to 1912 to enjoy an inspiring, pure romance. I also hope as they identify with Kate and Jon they will think about their own lives and choices they make as they look to their future.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I loved learning more about the work done among the poor in London during this time by faithful Christians. I have a heart for orphans, and wove that theme into the story.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? There are many authors I enjoy reading. A few of my favorite historical authors are Cathy Gohlke, Julie Klausen, Sarah Ladd, Julie Lessman, and Julianne Donaldson.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Each of the books in this series stand alone, but I think readers will enjoy starting with book 1, The Governess of Highland Hall, and seeing how the characters interact and grow through the years. Blessings and Happy Reading!
