Book Review: The Governess of Highland Hall By Carrie Turansky

Set in the early 1900’s, The Governess OF Highland Hall By Carrie Turnasky is one book you won’t be able to put down until the end. Julia Foster must become a governess in England due to her fathers sickness. Learning to adjust to England after several years as a missionary in England, she takes on the job of governess at Highland Hall. Julia must also train two teenage girls, her employers young charges, as they prepare for their coming out. Julia longs to be back in her beloved India, but as sparks fly between her and employer, will she follow her heart or will she do what needs to be done?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is well written, and you won’t be able to put it down until you are finished. I have never heard of the author, but this book is in my favorite top ten books now. The development of the characters is so well done that you feel you are there with them.  I give this book five stars. You will laugh, cry, and be on the edge of your seat while you read this book.
