The Daughter of Highland Hall || 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.

I just finished reading The Daughter of Highland Hall and I found it to be nice read. I liked the storyline and the main character Katherine. Katherine finds herself as most woman of her day, unable to do anything without a husband. It wsa nice to be able to read and see the way that the characters cared about their families and God. Kate has put a lot of her trust in her faith and hopes that it will see her through. She comes to realize that she cares more for others more herself. But how will she do what she wants to do? I give this book a 4/5. I was given this house by The Litfuse Group and LL opinions are my own.
