Book Review: A Refuge At Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky
I've enjoyed this book. It has been a great read. It has all the components I love: romance, English countryside, history.
This book is the third in the Highland Hall series. Fortunately, the author is skilled and the book is a great stand alone novel. I never once felt the need to refer back to the other books in the series in order to understand the current novel.
This book centers around Penny, a young woman who has moved to London to help her sister and brother in law care for their orphaned foster children. When England is threatened by the World War, Penny and her sister return to their childhood home, Highland Hall.
Penny keeps up a correspondence with a young pilot she'd met while in London. The story of their romance is interwoven in the day to day problems of a household in war time.
I enjoyed this book so much, I hope to read the earlier novels in the series and plan to seek out more of Turansky's books.
