The Daughter of Highland Hall

It was fun to revisit the characters of Highland Hall in this new tale from Carrie Turansky.

In her latest book, The Daughter of Highland Hall, Carrie re-introduces Katherine Ramsey, as she takes her first steps into English society.  Katherine, with her aunt close at her side, is trying to avoid any mistakes.  As you watch her appear before the king and queen of England, you cringe as the crowd stops and stares in silence as Katherine breaks every rule of polite English society!  Katherine must acquire a husband, but she is not having a good start.

When she is introduced to Jonathan Foster, Katherine's life begins to take a route she never expected!  Katherine begins this tale as a girl who thinks only of herself; however, she becomes a woman whose heart is opened to the needs of those around her.

After living in India, as a missionary, for years, Jonathan has returned to England to finish his training to become a doctor.  His plans to return to India change as his eyes are opened to a need of poor in London.  Along the way, his feelings for Katherine further complicate his decision!

You won't believe where both Katherine and Jonathan arrive at the end of this tale! 

I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my unbiased review
