Book Review

The Governess of Highland Hall

The Governess of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky had me hooked from the first few pages! I loved this book and the characters of Highland Hall. The best part is that you just don’t know how it is going to turn out right until the end.

Julia Foster steps into her role of governess with some fear and reservation, but she however has no choice since her father has taken ill and she needs to work to support her parents until her father is well again. For years she had been working alongside her parents, caring for young girls in India. Worlds lie between her life in India and the halls of an Edwardian estate where she must find her place. She does not feel like she is quite one of the staff, but does not fit upstairs with the family either while contending with her preoccupied master, Sir Willam Ramsey. She quickly becomes fond of the four children she is to take care of, but not everyone is fond of her however, and soon they show their true colours. What unfolds in the household will keep you turning the pages. You will delight in the customs, the clothes and the drama as William and Julia seek to do what is best to save their respective families as the story unravels and their lives intertwine.

I enjoyed this book from start to finish and for a lovely read, I highly recommend this Edwardian romance. I rate this book: 5 stars!
