Book Review: The Daughter of Highland Hall

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

Book 2, Edwardian Brides 
(Waterbrook Multnomah, October 2014)

What if the title, the estate, the life of security and splendor . . . what if it isn't enough?

Strong-willed and beautiful, debutante Katherine Ramsey feels ready to take the London social season by storm, and she must. Her family estate, Highland Hall, has been passed to older male cousin Sir William Ramsey, and her only means of securing her future is to make a strong debut and find a proper husband. With her all-knowing and meddling aunt as a guide, Katherine is certain to attract suitors at the lavish gatherings, sparkling with Great Britain's elite.

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.

My Opinion

I didn't read the first book in this series but I wish I would have. I highly recommend it because you do feel like you are missing out on some of the background of the main characters.

However, with that being said, I still really enjoyed the book, the characters and the storyline. I am not usually able to get into English based novels but this one drew me in right away.

I loved watching the relationship develop between Katherine and Jonathon and I loved watching her honesty, generosity, and developing faith in God.

This book was written so well and I couldn't wait to see what happened in the end!
