The Governess of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

I love blogging for free books. In the book, "The Governess of Highland Hall," in the early 1900s, missionary Julia Foster loves working alongside her parents, ministering and caring for young girls in India until her dad gets sick. They have to come back to England and Julia must take a job at Highland Hall as governess so she can raise money for the family. This means she begins teaching four kids- some which have behavior and attitude issues.
William is the owner of the estate- whose wife has passed away and he is left to care for his two young children and his deceased cousin Randolph’s two teenage girls. He becomes intrigued by Julia as she begins to transform and change the house with her faith and her spunky attitude. At the end, both William and Julia must make choices about their futures.
I liked this book, much more than I thought I would. I loved the character that Julia was- with her strong faith and strong personality. There are also other interesting characters in the book that I enjoyed. Overall- it is a book I'd suggest to others and I would definitely like to read some more novels by the author, Carrie Turansky.

Thanks for this kind review of The Governess of Highaland Hall! I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I am working on finishing up book 2 now, The Daughter of Highland Hall, which features Katherine as the heroine. It's been a challenge to help her grow and change, but I am excited to share this new book with reading friends this coming fall. Blessings and Happy New Year! Thanks for reviewing!! Carrie
