The Daughter of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

What’s the back cover says:

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 thoughts:

I did very much enjoy this 2nd book in the  Ewardian Brides Series Daughter of Highland Hall. Although I did feel it get a little stale at times. I did like the fact that we also got little side stories from other charterers like cousin David Ramsey as well with the troubles with the housemaid Lydia and here sister Helen. overall the story was quit good. I do wish Katherine would have stood up more to her aunt who was very rude to just about everyone who she felt were lower class then she was. There was times when I was getting closed to the end I had already figured out just how it was going to end. Overall this was a great 2nd book to the series. I do very much enjoy Carrie Turansky writing style.

I give Daughter of Highland Hall 4 Stars for overall read, I give the cover 5 stars I love the cover its so beautifully done.
