Book Review: The Governess of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

The Governess of Highland Hall

The Synopsis:

“Missionary Julia Foster loves working alongside her parents, ministering and caring for young girls in India. But when the family must return to England due to illness, she readily accepts the burden for her parents’ financial support. Taking on a job at Highland Hall as governess, sh quickly finds that teaching her four privileged, ill-mannered charges at a grand estate is more challenging than expected, and she isn’t sure what to make of the estate’s preoccupied master, Sir William Ramsey.

Widowed and left to care for his two young children and his deceased cousin’s two teenage girls, William is consumed with saving the estate from financial ruin. The last thing he needs is the distraction of a kindhearted-yet-determined governess who seems to be quietly transforming his household with her persuasive personality, vibrant prayer life, and strong faith.

While both are tending past wounds and guarding fragile secrets, Julia and William are determined to do what it takes to save their families–common ground that proves fertile for unexpected feelings. But will William choose Julia’s steadfast heart over the wealth and power he needs to secure Highland Hall’s future?”

My Review:

Again, due to mailing problems, this review is extremely late, I really hope this is the last one, I hate being late. Anyways, I have read some of The Governess of Highland Hall and will review what I have read.

The Governess of Highland Hall is beautifully written and full of excellent description. So far, the storyline has held my attention and I really do like the characters, all are realistic and believable. I am not going to put an age rating on this book like I normally do, just because I haven’t read enough of the book to feel confident with my answer.

I will definitely be finishing the book, and will probably try to get book 2 when it comes out next year. I do recommend this book to all of my friends as a really good read.
