A Refuge at Highland Hall
In this third and final book in the Edwardian Brides Series, you’ll be swept away to England and France in 1915 as the Ramsey family and their staff and friends face the dramatic challenges and losses of World War One, yet they also experience the hope and triumph that comes as they put their trust in God to carry them through. Penny Ramsey helps the family welcome a group of orphaned children to Highland Hall, but she soon discovers caring for them is more difficult than she’d expected. She writes to Alex Goodwin, a daring British pilot, who chases German zeppelins across the sky over the Front Line in France, and longs for the day she will see him again. You’ll be delighted by two pure and heartwarming romances: Penny and Alex, and Lydia Chambers and Marius Ritter, a lady’s maid and a prisoner of war. But most of all I hope you’ll be inspired by the characters’ examples of trusting God through the trials they face.
Fans of “Downton Abbey” will find many of the same elements in this series: A wealthy, aristocratic family living on a large English country estate with romance, conflicts, and family drama; and loyal servants with troubles and heartaches of their own
My thoughts: Carrie does a wonderful job at bringing to life the Edwardian time with this series! I love that her characters are realistic and fun to get to know as you read the series (and that characters from the first two books are present in this one), and I enjoy the historical aspect of the series. This one was particularly interesting to me, since it is set in 1915 and Highland Hall has become a refuge for many during WW1. I highly recommend this series and am sad this one is the final book!
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
