If you are looking for a period drama to take you back to the past, look no further than the novel, A Refuge at Highland Hall. This is the third book in author Carrie Turansky’s Edwardian Brides series and is the first book I have had an opportunity to read by her. Going into the third book, I was not sure how not reading the other stories would affect my enjoyment. When I first cracked open the book there was a two page list of characters. However, not to be dismayed I started into the book and was soon caught up with all the doings at Highland Hall during World War 1. This story follows a couple of romances and gives readers of the trilogy a chance to catch up with the lives of the previous characters. This started out a little slow for me but by the time I got about halfway through I was very caught up in the drama of these characters and what was happening in their lives. I have read quite a few WW2 stories, but I believe this may be the first I have read that dealt with WW1. And Ms. Turansky’s attention to historical detail was quite mesmerizing. I look forward to more by this new to me author.
