The Governess of Highland Hall

The Governess of Highland Hall is written by Carrie Turansky and is part of the Edwardian Brides series. Julia Foster is a young missionary who lives with her parents in India when they must return to England because of illness. Julia soon finds herself working as a Governess for Sir William Ramsey because she must earn money to help provide for her parents in the late 1800s - early 1900s. As you would expect, Julia finds herself becoming attracted to Sir William Ramsey, which is not appropriate since she works for him. There are various obstacles they must face in the story: the fact that the two young girls do not feel that they need Julia as a Governess and that Sir William Ramsey finds himself needing the appropriate funds to pay the taxes on his home.


I really like learning more about this time-period, and the characters were ones I was really rooting for. Although they were not perfect, they really grew throughout the story which always makes the characters more relatable.
