Book Review - "The Governess of Highland Hall"

Carrie Turansky has created a masterpiece with her novel, "The Governess of Highland Hall!"  The style of writing and vivid details bring this novel to life - I could picture the setting and became so immersed in the characters' lives while reading this book!
Julia takes on the task of caring for Sir William's children as their governess.  Very quickly she discovers that that is not the only way that she is needed here, as Sir William rarely spends time with his children and they are missing having a father and Sir William's sister needs assistance as well.  As Julia adjusts to her new role she finds herself settling into the position, but also losing her heart not only to the children, but also to Sir William himself; however Julia is merely the help.  Will these two allow their hearts to lead them even if it means crossing social class lines?
This is such a beautiful and well-written story!  I did not want to stop reading once I started!  I am looking forward to future books from Carrie. This is a must-read for historical romance fans, you do not want to miss out on this gem of a book!
