The Daughter of Highland Hall Book Review

I have a really good book to share with you today called The Daughter of Highland Hall written by Carrie Turansky.
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 Review:

If you are a lover of old fashioned time pieces when it comes to romance, then you will definitely love this book! The romance books on modern times are just not really my cup of tea, I enjoy an old fashioned love story where there is a lot of innocence and some chivalry involved, so this book was a true delight to read.

I also love when there is trouble involved and Katherine sure does have her hands full with her aunt and all of the wealthy society when it's time for her to make her debut. What is expected of her becomes a battle within her own heart as much as it is a battle with society and what they expect her to do.

You will definitely get quite a lot of excitement out of this story and hopefully a renewal of what it really means when you truly love and respect the person you decided to marry.

Happy Reading!
