A Refuge at Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

Posted on

Refuge-at-Highland-Hall1In A Refuge at Highland Hall, Penny Ramsey wants nothing more than to find a lasting love. Having been disappointed before, she’s a bit cautious when she meets pilot Alex Goodwin–but not that cautious. She’s bold enough to be the one to initiate writing letters to each other. The drama and chaos of World War One keeps Alex away fighting and takes Penny back to the magnificent Highland Hall, where she helps care for several orphan children. Right away, Penny’s letters become a lifeline to Alex. Both of them seem to grow attached to each other quickly, however, I think that is probably realistic to many relationships that formed during war-time. There are some twists and turns, and Alex is left very affected by events that happen while he’s at war. I thought the author did a good job with character development, especially with Alex. She also obviously did so much research to make the war events so realistic and true to circumstance. The cover of the book is gorgeous! Overall, it’s a very good read for fans of Christian historical fiction. The story is very faith-based. I do recommend reading the series in order, so you’re more familiar with the characters.

**I received an advance reader copy from the author for an honest review.
