[Book Review] The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

The Daughter of Highland Hall


Carrie Turansky

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

We were introduced to the world of Highland Hall in Carrie Turansky’s first book of the Edwardian Brides series; The Governess of Highland Hall. In that book I fell in love with the characters and setting, feeling like I was transported to the world of Downton Abbey. In the second novel of the series, The Daughter of Highland Hall, we are reintroduced to Katherine Ramsey who has recently turned eighteen and is about to debut in society.


Under the wing of her overbearing aunt, Katherine hopes to obtain a proposal from a worthy gentleman. Her Aunt Louisa constantly pushes her toward Edward; handsome and wealthy, what more could she want? However, she is drawn to Jonathan’s quiet spirit and his desire to serve the poor in the East End of the city. Her faith in God grows and as family scandals surface, Katherine isn’t sure what her future holds. But as her Aunt tries to secure her future, Katherine soon learns only God can secure her future.


I loved stepping back into the world of Highland Hall. We had plenty of more scenes with Julia & William – the hero and heroine of The Governess of Highland Hall. This series is all very much related so if you haven’t read The Governess of Highland Hall yet then I would strongly suggest doing so before picking up The Daughter of Highland Hill. You will appreciate the story so much more so if you do!
