 About the book: 

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:

I thought this book was a fun, easy read and a great continuation of the Ramsey family's story.  The Daughter of Highland Hall picks up the story with the eldest daughter of the late Randolph Ramsey, Katherine Ramsey.  Katherine is only concerned about one thing--finding a husband who will inherit a large estate and money.  But as the social season gets underway, Katherine begins to question whether riches are the only reason one gets married.  I liked seeing the transformation of Katherine as she encountered situations that were beyond her control.  Many times in our lives we are met with circumstances that force us to see what is really valuable in life and worth living for.   Another great theme in this story is the one of forgiveness.  William and his brother David have been at odds for a long time, and with David's current mess, society would expect William to turn his back.  But William extends forgiveness and love even when it isn't popular.  Carrie Turnasky has put out another great novel to put on your shelf.  So make sure to pick this one up!  And don't forget to enter Carrie Turansky's giveaway by clicking here!
