Last year I was able to review The Governess of Highland Hall, a Christian fiction novel by Carrie Turansky. I really enjoyed it, and I was very excited to have the opportunity to review the second book in the series- The Daughter of Highland Hall.
The Daughter of Highland Hall is the second in the Edwardian Brides series. In this installment, Kate is entering London society. She is going through the traditional "coming out" where she'll meet only the best of society in the hopes of finding a husband who is worthy of her. As she faces a scandal that limits her opportunities in society, she also begins to be more open to the leading of God in her life. And she realizes the joy of serving London't poor along with medical student Jon Foster.
The setting of these novels is very interesting. Living in modern times, it's hard to imagine the pressure that Kate is under to wear the right thing, wear her hair the right way, meet the right people. But at the time, this "coming out" was so important to families of importance.
The character development was good. I felt as if I got to know Kate better. (She featured in the first book in the series but not prominently.) The setting and time period are interesting.
There isn't anything particularly deep here, and occasionally the action didn't flow, and it seemed a little stilted. But it was a light, enjoyable read. And I did enjoy following some of the characters I had met in the first book.
Although the books are a series, they can be read independently. They are stand alone stories.
I give this one 4 stars and a G rating for content.
