A Refuge At Highland Hall : Book Review
In Carrie Turansky’s final book in the Edwardian Brides series, you will be swept along in a story of courage, love, and war. Penny Ramsey lives in London in 1915, when war is upon Britain. She helps her brother in law and sister with the orphans they have taken in. But when she meets Alex Goodwin, a Royal Naval Air Service pilot in training, her world is turned upside down in the best of ways of course. When Penny, her sister Kate, and the children return to Highland Hall for safety, Penny and Alex exchange letters, and their friendship grows. Will their friendship turn into anything more?
Alex Goodwin is determined to do his part to defend his country. As a Royal Naval Air Service pilot, he sees many friends lose their lives in the line of duty. He is unsure when it comes to his friendship with Penny though, and doesn’t want to form any romantic attachments. But when a terrible accident happens, Alex will have to lean on God, and his friends to get him through it.
I truly enjoyed this book and in fact read it in less than a day. I felt transported to each and every place that was in the book, from the rolling hills to the London streets, to flying in a plane high above France. This book is truly beautifully written, and I love how all the previous characters in the last two books are woven into this one. I love the theme of faith and courage, and the love and support of the families. This is truly a unique series to read, and I know you will enjoy every word of it as I did.
