The Governess of Highland Hall - Book Review

The Governess of Highland Hall is a charming story of a young missionary woman named Julia who finds herself as a governess at Highland Hall. There she meets a man named William who happens to run Highland. Sparks fly, troubles are encountered and faith is tested.

Carrie Turansky does a wonderful job on this page turning, keeps-you-interested- until-the-very-end, novel. I really  couldn't put it down! Carrie brings a Downton Abbey feel to the book while bringing faith into the picture and allowing her characters to take you on their personal journeys of trusting the Lord.

Every character is easy to love (well, almost every one of them... Katherine takes a little longer to love as well as Lady Gatewood) and each bond that forms between the characters will leave you hungry for more.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait for a second one to come out! Be sure to grab this book October 15th at your nearest book store. You won't regret it!

  1. Hi Tara, thanks for this kind and well-written review! The Governess of Highland Hall is the first in The Edwardian Brides Series...so there are two more coming. I am writing Book 2 now, The Daughter of Highland Hall, and Katherine is the heroine. It tells the story of her first season in London. She has a lot to learn, and it has been a good challenge to help her through it all. : )
    Be sure to stop by my website next week. We are doing some great giveaways of gift baskets with Downton Abbey and tea themed gifts.
    Blessings and Happy Reading,

    1. Thank you so much for your response! I thoroughly enjoyed reading your book and can't wait for the second one!

      God bless you,


What ya' got to say? :)
