A Refuge at Highland Hall

Okay. I admit it. I was unfamiliar with the author, Carrie Turansky, until I saw this book up for grabs. I was also unaware of this series. *face palm*

With that said and out of the way, how happy I am to have discovered this author! My absolute, hands-down, all time favorite genre of fiction is Historical Fiction. History is just beyond fascinating to me. So needless to say, I was very excited to read this book and was even happier to discover that it is one of three. Granted, it is the last of the three…but, when I was a kid learning to ride my bike, I thought that riding it backwards was acceptable. Therefore, starting from the last book would just have to do.

First, the characters are very relatable. Carrie Turansky does an excellent job of bringing each character to life and giving them their own separate personalities. I was also very impressed with how she handles the historical aspect of the story. I feel as though World War II tends to get more attention than World War I when it comes to fiction. The author does an excellent job in my opinion, of filling the reader in on the facts of World War I, while not bogging down the story with endless details.

My favorite part of the book, of course, is the author’s focus on God. She beautifully displays God’s attentiveness to His children, and His involvement in every detail of their lives…from the small, to the big and scary.

Bottom Line: Easy read, fun read, must read.
