"The Daughter of Highland Hall" by Carrie Turansky

"The Daughter of Highland Hall" is book 2 of the Edwardian Brides series, but can be read as a stand alone book like I did. 

This book was set in England in the early 1900s and follows the story of Katherine Ramsey, as well as some other characters in the book. I loved reading about the culture, parties, traditions, and expectations of the women and society during that time. The story line was good and kept my interest. I was reminded and surprised how important society status, money, and scandals are to a person's reputation and worth. Katherine has to decide thru out the book what she considers important and with the help of true friends and God, she finds her way and purpose. 

This book would be considered clean, romantic, christian fiction and I would recommend it! I would also love to read other books by this author. 

About the book: 

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.
