    This is the final book in the Edwardian Brides series; and although I loved every one this one was my favorite Once again featuring the Ramsey and Foster families along with their wonderful staff at Highland Hall the focus this time was on Penny She travels to London to help sister Kate and her husband Jon with the 8 children they have taken in as orphans When the bombing of London grows increasingly worse during World War I Sir William her cousin decides that the family and staff must evacuate to Highland Hall in the countryside where they will all be safer and be able to fulfill their needs easily on the farm This book touched my heart in so many ways The caring and support of both the family members and their staff for the war veterans The strong faith of each of them especially seen in their daily morning devotions for both family and staff and the way they lived their lives in service to others Turansky's historical detail regarding the Zepplin bombings the RNAS the air battles etc brought the varying aspects of World War I and the hardships endured by both civilians and military personnel to life Her character development was superb and the plot line just pulled me in so that I couldn't stop reading until I finishedA wonderful historical fiction series that I highly recommend I received a complimentary copy from the author in a Facebook giveaway Opinions are mine alone I was not compensated for this review

Will everyone she loves who has taken part in fighting to protect her country return home once all is said and done?It was a sad moment when I finished this book Not because the story was sad but because I hated to say goodbye to these lovely characters and their home of Highland Hall Seriously if you haven’t met them you should So please Add the Edwardian Brides series by Carrie Turansky to your to be read immediately pile You’ll be glad you didJust in case that wasn’t convincing enough there’s that I loved about this storyThe clear and detailed description and action of Alex Goodwin flying in the war fighting against gunfire and Zeppelins was so intricately written that I got lost in the scene and forgot I was curled up in my recliner Oh yeah Carrie Turansky got me again Many times I found myself giggling crying gasping and who knows what other sounds came out of my mouth before this book was up But did I look around to see if anyone was looking? Okay so maybe I did once But that was when I was reading in the check out line at Wal Mart This book was too good to leave in the car It’s really too bad I can’t read and shop at the same time You know while I’m searching for the items I need Yeah if anyone figures out how to do that let me know PleaseSo to sum it all up A Refuge at Highland Hall might be finishing up a series but it also found its way to my heart and my keeper shelf

    A Refuge at Highland Hall is a beautiful conclusion to the Edwardian Brides series It is filled with realistic characters and set in a time period that is fraught with turmoil I enjoyed that the author brought all of the main characters from the previous books back together at Highland Hall where this stately manor truly became a refuge to many in this turbulent time of warThe main story line follows Penny Ramsey and her developing relationship with Alex Goodwin who is a pilot during WWI I loved hearing the thoughts of these two characters as they juggled their worries and doubts I especially liked reading the letters that were exchanged between the two when Alex was serving as a pilot My heart hurt for both of them during parts of this story as they both tried to find the path that God had for themAnother enjoyable aspect of this story is that the other two couples from books one and two have their own situations that they must trust God to bring them through It was heartwarming to watch William and Julia trust in God to work in their situation Kate and Jon had to survive long stretches of being apart from each other during a stressful time for their family And I really enjoyed the additional story between Marius and Lydia Every struggle that occurred for each of the couples in this book helped to develop and strengthen not only their relationships with each other but also to solidify their reliance upon GodI was sad to come to the end of the book as I could read about this family indefinitely However I thought that the ending to this story was just perfect It tied up the loose ends and gave me a glimpse into the future lives of these characters and was a very satisfying conclusionI definitely recommend this entire series to fans of historical fictionI received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewYou can read this review on my blog at

    About this book “The Great War shakes the world of a spirited young woman and the brave British pilot she loves taking her from London to her family’s magnificent country estate and sending him into the war torn skies over France Penny Ramsey has always considered Highland Hall her home but when Britain becomes involved in World War One she travels to London to assist her sister Kate with the eight orphan children she and her husband Jon have taken into their home Doing her part for the war effort takes priority over Penny’s dreams of romance until she meets Alex Goodwin a Royal Naval Air Service pilot in training Alex is determined to prove his worth and do his part to defend his country Knowing he is heading off for the dangerous assignment of chasing Zeppelins across the front line in France he feels it’s unwise to form any romantic attachments But he can’t help admiring the pretty warmhearted Penny and wondering what it would be like to find her waiting when he returns home from the war As Penny writes to Alex their friendship blossoms and she becomes his tie to home and normalcy as he faces the hardships war But being an RNAS pilot means confronting the enemy and the fallout from those experiences push Alex beyond Penny’s reach Can God mend the brokenness left by the losses of war?

    A Refuge at Highland Hall was just as good as the rest of the series Penny is a lovable character that I enjoyed spending 338 pages with Alex is a dashing and daring character that is a good match for Penny The scenes of him in flight battles with the enemy were very well done His struggles seemed very real and I felt as if I was working through them right along with the characters in the bookThere was one scene that my family and I consider a 'fast forward' scene where Alex and Penny share a moderately descriptive kiss before they are married engaged or even formerly courting I was a little disappointed at thatBesides that one scene I enjoyed the book immensely I must confess I feel like there should be stories to the series because I'm not ready to let all the characters go This is probably a series I will revisit again sometime


  8. Hannah Hannah says:

    I loved this book It's the last of the series and is set during World War 1 Obviously that's going to be a story that isn't all fun and roses Penny leaves London with her family after the bombings begin and moves to Highland Hall for safety She meets a young pilot and falls in love with him before leaving London and their correspondence figures in the story But when he uits writing she is confused by his rejection and begins to help the war effort as she can Is there any way she can expect a happy ending in such a shattered country?The story line of this is incredibly absorbing and this ranks easily in one of the top novels I've ever read about WW1 Do yourself a favor and read it

  10. Staci Staci says:

    The Edwardian Brides Series grew stronger with each book It was great to see characters develop in all three novels in the seriesA Refuge at Highland Hall brings in aspects of WWI not found in the other novels I especially enjoyed how Carrie brought in aspects of the war experienced by both airmen stress pressure failure etc and common citizens knitting for soldiers and air raids as examples It was a nice addition to have a separate story line tied to an internment campThe Edwardian Brides Series was a delightful series and recommended for historical fiction readers
