Publisher's Summary

Eighteen-year-old Katherine Ramsey travels to London with her family to make her debut into society and hopefully find her future husband. Her overbearing aunt insists that she must secure a proposal from a wealthy young man who is in line to inherit his father's title and estate. But Katherine questions her aunt's plans when she gets to know Jonathan Foster, a handsome medical student and strong Christian who is determined to protect the poor and vulnerable in London's East End. When a family scandal puts a damper on Katherine's hopes for the season, she has time to volunteer with Jonathan, caring for children in one of London's poorest areas, and romance blossoms. Katherine's faith grows, and she begins to envision a different future with Jonathan. But when Katherine's work in the East End puts her in danger, Jonathan distances himself from Katherine to protect her. A wealthy suitor reappears, and Katherine must choose which path to follow.

A good clean romantic novel

Loved this book! I appreciate the spiritual thread throughout the book and the lessons it teaches about the role of faith in the lives of its primary characters. The plot was well presented and I had a hard time turning off the audio.

Enchanting love story

I loved the book. The characters were true to their Christian convictions. It was a sweet love story without premarital sex. And the language was appropriate. I loved everything about this book and I will recommend it to everyone. Including my 5 married daughters, and 3 daughter in laws. Thank you so much for this wonderful book. Debi

cute story

I really enjoyed this sequel to The Governess of Highland Hall. The story kept my interest throughout. The narrator is great with almost every aspect except her male voices. Unfortunately her male voices are all scratchy and sound like old men, and sometimes it is difficult to discern which male is speaking. However, she has a great talent with reading with excitement and the correct tones and inflections, so she is still a top narrator
I'm now moving on to book 3.

Good story, good reader, wish for 3rd in series.

Any additional comments?

Enjoyed the listen, glad for the changes in Kate... good ending. Disappointed in continuing story of Julia, especially the part about giving her inheritance to her fiance months before they actually married. Since that was a time when women had no legal recourse, it was foolish. If he had died before they married she would have had nothing. They should have married right away and joined their estates. Other than that, this story, focused on Kate, was a good story. Wish there was a 3rd in this series. Reader was excellent.

Lovely Listen!

Book two in Carrie Turansky's Highland Hall series gives us Kate making her debut in London society. She's very young, only 18, and having to make choices that will affect her for the rest of her life. Scandal in the family looms in the background. As part of her story arc she learns to deal with an over-bearing aunt. Kate must choose between two men who are pursuing her, but it becomes clear early on who she'll end up with. The story is slow to unfold and even though I had the speed set on 1.5 or 2 for speed it was still slow moving, which I am assuming may be a narrator issue. Several of the men in the story sounded exactly alike in their accents and in their choice of words. Some of that may be from the narrator but it made it difficult to differentiate which character was speaking at times. It is so difficult to find Christian fiction to listen to, and this is one that I enjoyed and was able to do my household chores as I was listening. Glad to have had the audiobook available!

Good

This was an interesting story and worth it in the Escape package. I rate it three because I felt it was much longer than it needed to be and the multiple dramatic scenes toward the end became a bit too much for me. I also thought the spiritual aspect became somewhat heavy in the latter part. It was trying to cover so many angles that it felt inserted for insertion sake. The narration was fine. Some of the male characters were a bit raspy, but I felt the narrator did a good job considering how many characters there were. However, the reading was slow, so I sped it up for most of the book. And some of the action scenes were read so slow, I turned it up to double speed. As a side note, all the adult main characters were so serious. It would have been more enjoyable had there been a little humor running through.

Good, clean romance

This second book of a trilogy is quite good, although it can drag a little, there was suspense and best of all, this author gives the glory to God. I'm so thankful there are still good, clean romances without foul language and uncomfortable sex scenes. You won't have to worry about young ears hearing vulgar language. If you are looking for a clean romance, this book is it!
