"The Daughter of Highland Hall"

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.

My Review:
"The Daughter of Highland Hall" is the 2nd book in Carrie Turansky's Edwardian Brides series and this is my favorite book of Carrie's so far!  Katherine has grown up with a plan all set for her as a girl of her station will be married and continue to live a life of luxury.  However, as we all know life does not always (or usually!) go just according to plan and Katherine is faced with options.  Katherine is given the chance to live her life and really find out whom she is and grow herself.  I loved this time of self-realization for Katherine as she is allowed the freedom to learn about herself and this is such a pivotal time in her life. I also have to add that I love this cover, it is simply stunning!  I highly recommend this book for historical romance fans!
