The Governess of Highland Hall

The Governess of Highland Hall
Carrie Turansky

Julia has been in India with her parents for the past twelve years serving as a missionary. But as her father's health declined they made the decision to return to England so Julia could find a governess job and support the family. She begins working at Highland Hall for a widow. His two children and orphaned nieces are often a trial, but she loves her job. Can she leave this family when her father gets well and returns to India?

The story started out strong for me and continued for the entire book. The characters felt very real and authentic. I appreciated the secondary characters as much as the main ones. The side romances and bits of intrigue amongst the staff made the story more full and entertaining. It isn't an edge of your seat book, but definitely has some drama and romance. I will definitely be checking out the other books by this author.

I received this book free of charge from WaterBrook in exchange for my honest review.
