The Daughter of Highland Hall

The Daughter of Highland Hall
Edwardian Brides Book 2
Carrie Turansky
Katherine is ready to enter the London social season. Her cousin is her guardian and her rather abrasive aunt has taken it upon herself to get Katherine ready for the season. Everyone hopes that Katherine will make an advantageous match and live a life of luxury. But Katherine catches a glimpse of what it would be like to live a life in service for God and others. Now she's torn. Which direction should she go?

Regency or English historical fiction is one of my favorites. So I was super excited to read this book. The book started off slow and didn't really grab me at first. I wasn't aware when I picked it up that it was book 2, so maybe the first book would have set the story a little better and made it less confusing. Once I got into the book I enjoyed the characters and was drawn into the story. There were several things that didn't ring true to the time period, but for the sake of fictional license I ignored them. The messages of faith and trust that were woven into the story were insightful and thought provoking. They were the best parts of the book, to me. In summery, I enjoyed the story and will try another book by this author.

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